This course is designed to be an introductory overview of select orthopedic conditions in children, including presentation, examination, intervention, and possible causes for a referral. The aim is to provide clinicians with a framework for orthopedic evidence-based clinical decision-making in order to recognize and address orthopedic problems, optimize patient outcomes, and refer patients who may require care out of their scope of practice. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.
