This unit provides an examination of neurological and neuromuscular conditions and their relation to exercise prescription and exercise rehabilitation. The functional anatomy of the neuromuscular system and the roles of neuromotor and sensorimotor elements in motor control are discussed. Pathophysiology in relation to neurological and neuromuscular conditions is addressed and the signs, symptoms, co-morbidities and treatments for a range of neurological and neuromuscular conditions are identified. Considerations for prescription of exercise to clients with neurological and neuromuscular conditions are also outlined.
