Description

This course reviews Western scientific perspectives on musculoskeletal pathology. Major topics include the pathophysiologic basis of pain, inflammation, and structural remodeling. The course will also review the changes in body structure that occur as we progress through life. `Red flag` conditions (ie conditions requiring referral to Western medicine) and physical challenges that may be contraindications will be explored in detail. The course will review current research evidence and tools used in biomedicine to address these issues, including surgery and drugs, and discuss how these are used to alleviate suffering.
