About this Unit
This unit will introduce students to clinical and theoretical foundations of the musculoskeletal system conditions that will impact on the function of the lower extremity. Disease processes that affect the joint structure such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, arthropathies, gout, osteoporosis, osteomyelitis, systematic disorders and tumours will be covered. Advanced assessment evaluation will be taught that will include diagnostic techniques, eg. X-rays, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging and computer tomography. This will assist in the application and clinical interpretation of presenting disease processes in podiatric settings.
