Toe Walking: A Sensory Perspective

Description

Exploring the intricacies of pediatric toe walking requires consideration of the sensory systems. This engaging webinar explains the relationship between sensory function and toe walking. Practitioners will be equipped with an understanding of the effect of sensory function on ideal gait and gain insight
into identifying sensory-based pathologies that underlie toe walking. Through this webinar, practitioners will discover effective screening methods to identify sensory dysfunction and relevant pathologies, all presented through a lens that bridges scientific rigor with practical clinical applications for the pediatric rehabilitation professional.

Join us after the lecture for a Q&A with the instructor to get your most pressing questions answered.

How to Prepare

Learning Objectives

  1. Determine how the sensory systems, in general, contribute to ideal gait and toe walking
  2. Apply science and research findings regarding the sensory systems from a clinical perspective
  3. Link the contributions of specific sensory systems—vestibular, proprioception, and vision—as they relate to both toe walking and ideal gait
  4. Determine the clinical significance of science and research findings in order to select appropriate interventions
  5. Select methods to screen for sensory dysfunction
  6. Analyze the sensory-based pathologies relevant to toe walking and their effect on daily activities and function.
