DISEASES OF THE LOCOMOTOR SYSTEM
Aim of the subject (26 hours) is to give to the student the knowledge needed to learn the most common traumatic pathologies related to sports practice and overload pathologies, where the repetition of athletic gesture in the presence of risk factors is the trigger cause

FISIOLOGIA DEGLI ORGANI DI MOVIMENTO E FISIOLOGIA APPLICATA ALLO SPORT
To know cardiovascular, respiratory and metabolic adjustments during exercise, in high altitude and diving too.
To examine the aerobic system, particularly kinetics of oxygen uptake at the onset of exercise and its applications in physiopathology (myopathy).

SPORT’S MEDICINE
Integration of orthopedic and physiological knowledge of the integrated course of the sciences of the locomotor system

DISEASES OF THE LOCOMOTOR SYSTEM
Fractures: generalities, classification, complications and treatment
Dislocation and sprain: definition and anatomic notion of the most frequent joint involved, treatment
The knee: anatomy. Meniscal, chondral and ligamentous lesions. Treatment
Muscular lesion: diagnosis and treatment
Overload pathologies: classification, risk factors and treatment.
Spine pathology: scoliosis, chronic back pain and herniated disk.
Taping.

FISIOLOGIA DEGLI ORGANI DI MOVIMENTO E FISIOLOGIA APPLICATA ALLO SPORT
- Skeletal muscle: structure and function. Muscle action. Neural control of human movement.
- Energy for physical activity: phosphate-creatine. The lactic acid system. The aerobic system (maximal oxygen consumption and kinetics of oxygen uptake at the onset of exercise). Focus on myopathy.
- Carbohydrates, lipids, proteins. Vitamins, minerals and water. Best nutrition during exercise.
- Oxygen transport and utilization: Fick’s equation. Pulmonary ventilation during exercise. Kidney, acid base balance, renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. Cardiovascular system during exercise.
- Upper body exercise.
- High altitude. Diving: physiology and physiopathology.

SPORT’S MEDICINE
Training methodology: adaptations, sport loads with their principles, physiologic training adaptations (aerobic, anaerobic, anabolic).
Sports physiology: apparatus adaptations at the training loads.
Traumatology: acute and chronic trauma and their treatment.
Auxology : sensible years, development factors.
Neurophysiology: movement learning, logical movement aspects.
Basic life support: algorithms, intensive care maneuvrer.
Doping: methods and doping substances, indications and contraindications.
