Physiopathology and Exercise Prescription for Patients with Osteoarticular Diseases
Health promotion and exercise prescription in individuals with pathologies of osteoarticular origin
Sustainable Development Goals
-identify key components of functional fitness and realize its importance in improving the quality of life of these patients.
-understand the physiological implications and limitations specific to a subject suffering from this disease and its implications for exerc. prescr.
-apply functional assessment protocols and use that information in developing individual prog. of exerc.
-take into account the implications that the application of different types of programs is likely to highlight the different components of physical fitness of patients with osteoarticular diseases.
- acquire the ability to communicate ideas and scientific knowledge, oral and written form, organized in coherent and logical issues about the scope of this Unit.
1.1. Introduction and conceptual classifications
1.2. Physiopathology, treatment phases and major implications on the physical condition
1.3. Indications and contraindications of exercise
2. Prescribed exercise in people with osteoarticular changes
2.1. Brief summary of epidemiological determinants and types of prevention (primary, secondary and tertiary)
2.2. Exercise, types of prevention and health models
2.3. Specific implications for labor
In P classes, students must participate actively in the preparation and execution of work, in group discussions about the activities, and on the elaboration of indivi. reports. These classes are an oportunity for students develop their skills in exerc. prescr. in real situations
The student assessment includes answering to questions in the classes, and presentation by the students of relevant scientific articles and their discussion with the teacher. Written evaluation will be carried out through a frequency or a final exam.
Despite the work attendance is essential to success in the course, relevance will be also given to working at distance. This will be done primarily through the provision of resources in Moodle.
