Anotation:

In this course, students will be introduced to the problems of locomotive organs diseases and musculoskeletal pain in the first seven lectures. Great space is devoted to electrotherapeutic methods, therapeutic ultrasound and phototherapy. Furthermore, advanced neurorehabilitation methods, especially transcranial brain stimulation methods (repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation of the brain - rTMS, transcranial electrical stimulation of the brain - tDCS and electroconvulsive therapy - ECT) are discussed. In the second half of the semester, attention is paid to the possibilities of using ionizing electromagnetic fields in medical diagnostics and therapy (eg X-ray, proton therapy, radiotherapy, etc.).

Study targets:

The aim of the study is to acquaint with basic physical therapies, which are used in the treatment of locomotive organs, especially in the treatment of musculoskeletal pain. Furthermore, the introduction and possibilities of using ionizing electromagnetic field in medical diagnostics and therapy.
