Programs Included in this Bundle
  1. Orthopedic Manual Therapy for the Pediatric Patient
    This session will explain how orthopedic manual physical therapy can be an effective tool to treat the pediatric orthopedic population. Pediatric patients are not tiny adults, they have conditions and injuries that are specific to their population and without proper understanding the orthopedic manual therapist risks injuring these patients. Evidence supporting the use of manual therapy in pediatric patients will be presented. Specific precautions and relative risk of injury from manual therapy in the pediatric population will be presented. Using examples of common pediatric conditions, this session will highlight the differences and similarities between pediatric and adult patients and show how manual therapy can be an effective tool to treat the less familiar pediatric orthopedic patient.

    This seminar includes the following components:
    • Orthopedic Manual Therapy for the Pediatric Patient - Video
    • Orthopedic Manual Therapy for the Pediatric Patient - Audio
    • Orthopedic Manual Therapy for the Pediatric Patient - Paper

  2. The Conservative Management of Idiopathic Toe Walking Utilizing an Evidence-Based Algorithm and Sensory-Motor Treatment Approach
    The evaluation and treatment of children with idiopathic toe-walking continues to challenge pediatric physical therapists. Treatment techniques including serial casting, night splinting, stretching, sensory processing, and motor control have been explored in the literature with mixed results. However, there has been very little investigation into combining the above interventions based on the specific impairments, activity, and participation limitations of each individual child. This presentation will review the current literature on idiopathic toe walking including differential diagnoses, evaluation, and evidence-based intervention. The Toe Walking Tool will be presented as a standardized method of screening for non-idiopathic origins of toe walking for additional medical referrals. Two valid and reliable evaluation instruments, the Sensory Processing Measure and the Lunge Test of functional ankle dorsiflexion range of motion will be presente d to assist the pediatric physical therapist in identifying appropriate physical therapy interventions for optimal gait outcomes. Individualized treatment options will be presented in an evidence-based algorithm. The algorithm will guide physical therapists in selecting the most appropriate conservative treatment techniques based on each individual child’s body structure and function impairments, activity, and participation limitations. Conservative treatment techniques reviewed in this presentation will include the use of traditional stretching, serial casting, night splinting, orthoses, as well as motor control and sensory processing interventions.

    This seminar includes the following components:
    • The Conservative Management of Idiopathic Toe Walking - Video
    • The Conservative Management of Idiopathic Toe Walking - PPT
    • The Conservative Management of Idiopathic Toe Walking - Reference
    • The Conservative Management of Idiopathic Toe Walking - Audio

  3. Evidence-Based Care Guidelines for Body Weight Supported Locomotor Training in Children and Young Adults
    Body weight supported locomotor training (BWSLT) is a task specific intervention used to facilitate locomotion in children and young adults with cerebral palsy, down syndrome, spina bifida and spinal cord injury. This presentation will concisely review our clinical practice guideline for BWSLT generated through a systematic critical appraisal of the literature. Where evidence is insufficient, recommendations are based on a consensus statement generated by a panel of experienced physical therapists.

    This seminar includes the following components:
    • Evidence-Based Care Guidelines for Body Weight Supported Locomotor Training in Children and Young Adults - Video
    • Evidence-Based Care Guidelines for Body Weight Supported Locomotor Training in Children and Young Adults - Paper
