Physical therapists often use words and terms that may be unfamiliar to you, so this course will devote some time to learning much of the language of PT. You'll learn proper body mechanics and how to safely move patients. You will come to understand the normal gait cycle and how to help patients walk with assistive devices like walkers, crutches, and canes. You will also investigate various balance and coordination disorders.
