#7368 The Pediatric Foot: Development, Function, Assessment & Intervention

 

Do you have appropriate knowledge of age appropriate foot development, and are able to apply it clinically, as it relates to the child’s lower extremity alignment & gait? To effectively assess a child’s lower extremity alignment & gait, thorough knowledge of age appropriate foot development is necessary. This course provides a review of ideal boney architecture and presents a greater understanding of ideal foot position & function, while discussing optimum muscle activity. Science & research findings are described from a clinical perspective. Age specific values & assessment procedures are presented, together with proposed reasons to intervene and suggested methods of intervention. Although a concise anatomy review is provided, the primary focus of this course is clinical relevance & application.  As a result, the clinician will be better equipped to assess the pediatric foot & determine the appropriate intervention.

Course instruction method includes: lecture, picture/graphs, videos, and question/answer session.
