Differential Diagnosis of the Toe Walking Gait Pattern – Webinar
January 23, 2024 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm MST
Effectively addressing the pediatric toe walking gait pattern can be a challenging task for the pediatric therapist. Several underlying causes can contribute to this abnormal gait pattern which makes a deferential evaluation protocol paramount in driving effective treatment techniques for a beneficial outcome. Differential Assessment of the Toe Walking Gait Pattern will look at these underlying causes and identify a systematic approach to determining the course of action to be taken using functional assessment tests. Improve functional outcomes in your pediatric practice through implementation of treatment techniques discussed in this course while confidently navigating the challenging diagnosis of toe walking. This course will give attendees tools for evaluating the underlying cause or causes of the pediatric toe walking gait pattern. Participants will obtain functional assessment techniques to use right away during the evaluation process. A case study education approach will address each area of assessment followed by treatment techniques that promoted an improved gait pattern.
- Immediately improve your assessment skills of the toe walking gait pattern to promote effective treatment strategies in the pediatric population
- Practical assessment and re-assessment strategies for functional deficits, underlying conditions, and co-morbidities contributing to the abnormal gait pattern you can use the next day
