Course objectives
The main objective of the course is diagnosis and treatment of functional disorders. Fundamentals of diagnosis and treatment of functional disorders, described to Lewit and Rychlíková, lectures and practical exercises. Functional pathology deals with the problems of overworking locomotive system. It explains the concept of segmental motor innervation system, the control of motoneurons and muscle activity, their pathology as a result of pathological changes in functional segment.
