Students know the muscle physiology with emphasis on muscle contraction and tendon reflex on RM-plane or the interaction with the Golgi tendon organs. You know structure, physiology, nutrition, regeneration and degeneration of various anatomical structures. These include, inter alia, Bone, hyaline cartilage and fibrous, tendons, ligaments, menisci and Discii. Pain Physiological bases allow a differentiation between physiological (the corresponding phases of wound healing) and pathological pain.

Muscle physiology (structure and function, contraction mechanisms, energy supply) Applied Bindegewebsphysiologie the different anatomical structures (bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, meniscus, discus ...) and their specific wound types and function of receptors (free nerve endings, mechano-, thermo-, chemo-and proprioceptors) Neurophysiological basis with a focus on pain generation, conduction and processing development and differentiation of acute and chronic pain recognizing different nozizeptorischer sources as pain causers
