|(2 cr.) This integrated lecture-lab provides hands-on
experience with the advanced contemporary
modalities used in occupational therapy. Topic
areas include traditional physical agent
modalities and complementary and alternative
modalities used to enhance healing and manage pain
in preparation for clients' occupational
performance. Students gain experience with each
modality and apply use of modalities to
comprehensive intervention planning assignments.
Students use clinical reasoning to identify the
most appropriate physical agent modalities and
complementary technique for a given client based
on previous knowledge of client evaluation, body
systems, and socio-cultural influences.
