Are We Underserving the Pediatric Ankle? Supporting Development Through a Multi-System Approach
Presented by Amanda Hall, PT, MPT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3832Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course will instruct on examination and treatment of foot and ankle involvement for patients with pediatric health conditions including cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophies, and toe walking. Evidence-based interventions will be covered, including joint and soft tissue mobilizations to promote adaptive relative flexibility; improving intrinsic stability through progressive strengthening of the "foot core"; interventions to positively impact neuroplastic changes; and design of orthoses to support function and optimal development. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Utilization of Ankle Foot Orthoses in Patients with Neurological Dysfunction
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3489Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course will provide participants with essential tools for determining appropriate orthotic management with an ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) based on detailed gait analysis.
