May 12, 2023 8:15 AM - May 13, 2023 4:15 PM
NEW DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION: MARCH 26, 2023
The course will focus on typical musculoskeletal development and contrast this with common musculoskeletal issues in children with cerebral palsy and other neurological conditions. These include muscle contractures, joint malalignment and skeletal malalignment.
There will be a review of orthopaedic assessment techniques including tone, ROM, torsional evaluation, and radiographic measurementsz.
We will review gait analysis and discuss common gait patterns in children with CP along with common gait deviations in children with similar paediatric neuromotor conditions. We will examine the literature and explore conservative gait treatment techniques such as the use of orthoses and other positioning devises.
