An Effective Approach to Toe Walking

Description

Navigating the complexities of "idiopathic toe walking" can leave practitioners feeling confused or without direction. This diagnosis often triggers frustration among everyone involved, leading to inaccurate assessments, ineffective interventions, and poor achievement of results. This webinar will look
deeper into the repercussions of delayed and misguided interventions, as well as the evidence around toe walking and optimal gait dynamics. Through an exploration of evidence-based insights, practitioners will gain a novel and impactful approach to addressing pediatric toe walking. Participants will uncover the critical importance of timely and precise management of pediatric toe walking, as well as the ability to discern when a child's biomechanics or sensory functions are hindering their gait.

After the lecture, there will be a Q&A session with the instructor to address your most pressing questions.

How to Prepare

Learning Objectives

  1. Determine the outcomes of delayed intervention from a dynamic systems approach
  2. Determine the necessity of timely and accurate management of pediatric toe walking
  3. Examine the evidence related to toe walking and ideal gait
  4. Apply research findings from a clinical perspective
  5. Use correct biomechanics to better understand stability during ambulation
  6. Determine when a child has impaired biomechanics and/or sensory function that is negatively affecting their gait and participation in play or daily occupations
