The subject addresses applied movement analysis with respect to tissue loading and musculoskeletal/neurological pathology; the pathophysiological basis of musculoskeletal, neurological/neuromuscular and mental health conditions, cancers and chronic pain; and the assessment, diagnostic, medical and exercise-based interventions associated with the treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal, neurological/neuromuscular and mental health conditions and cancers. The subject examines the safety aspects of exercise for musculoskeletal, neurological/neuromuscular and mental health conditions and cancers with emphasis on exercise capacity limitations; knowledge of, identification of and management of exercise contraindications and adverse signs and symptoms; medication effects on exercise, and client communication. The subject also encompasses the knowledge and practical application of designing, interpreting and facilitating assessments and clinical exercise interventions for musculoskeletal, neurological/neuromuscular and mental health conditions and cancers as well as for falls prevention and gait analysis. This subject also covers policies and practice associated with workers compensation, veterans affairs and medicine compensation schemes.
