COURSE IS APPROVED IN THE STATE OF MICHIGAN FOR CEU’S.
This course is a comprehensive seminar that provides valuable tools for evidence-based evaluation, assessment and treatment of pediatric toe-walking with a descriptive, organized approach for healthcare professionals.
Course Description: This course will teach clinicians to develop interventions based on etiologies to produce successful long term outcomes. Through an organized evaluation procedure, specific data will be used to direct the clinician to potential etiologies. Causes and appropriate intervention strategies are identified in order to utilize a systematic approach to developing an effective treatment plan. This course challenges the clinician to ask the correct questions in order to form a systematic approach to treating the child who “toe walks.”
Upon completion of the course participants will be able to:
-Identify specific etiologies relevant to the pediatric equinus gait.
-Discuss etiology-specific & age appropriate assessment and management strategies for this population.
-Apply effective examination, evaluation, evaluation, intervention and treatment strategies, to toe walking in the pediatric population.
-Design an effective & individualized treatment plan for the pediatric population.
-Explain the future consequences of incorrect intervention.
Course Requirements: Please bring a yoga mat or towel and a goniometer.
