Injury to the nervous system is often devastating; however, extensive recovery of function within this system is possible with appropriate diagnosis and rehabilitation. Within their scope of practice, accredited exercise physiologists must be able to design and prescribe safe, evidence-based exercise interventions for individuals suffering a range of neurological disorders. This unit builds upon a framework of the human nervous system at gross anatomical and fundamental elemental levels, with a focus upon the sensory and motor components of movement control. This unit will extend the principles of physiology, motor control and biomechanics, and build upon skills gained during undergraduate studies. Students will explore the use of exercise in the rehabilitation of individuals with neurological disorders (including stroke, spinal cord injury, acquired brain injury, Parkinson's and multiple sclerosis). Specifically, pathophysiology of neural injury, general impairments commonly suffered as well as specific neurological disorders will be examined. The aim of this unit is for students to become proficient in the knowledge and techniques for the determination of neurologic injury and exercise-based rehabilitation of general neurological impairments, as well as specific neurological disorders.
