The W-Sitting Controversy: Evidence and Science

Instructor:

Duration:

2 hrs

Language:

English, French

Subtitles:

French

$ 135.00

Beverly Cusick begins this program with an explanation of the controversy over the issue of W-sitting and the related state of evidence to support both sides of the issue. Bringing the sciences of full-term neonatal posture and bone geometry to the discussion, she relates the typical hip neonatal and knee joint alignments to typical strategies used to acquire the ring-sitting position.

Beverly will then discuss the pathomechanics and pathokinesiology inherent in habitual and prolonged W-Sitting with legs and feet in lateral rotation, i.e. W-Sit-LR. She will discuss the physiologic adaptation of soft tissues, bones, and joints to routine use, and the condition known as “miserable malalignment syndrome.”

The presentation targets children with potential orthopedic issues and ligament laxity although the principles pertain to children with cerebral palsy.

Beverly concludes with an extensive list of ideas for researchers.

  1. Explain the biomechanical benefit that typical full-term newborn alignment of the leg and foot brings to the independent acquisition of the ring-sitting position.
  2. Name three of the hip muscles used by typical infants to drive and decelerate the transitions between ring-sitting and quadruped positions.
  3. Compare the triplane alignment of the femoral head and neck axis (HNA) in ring sitting and in W-sitting positions.
  4. Discuss the influence of W-sitting-LR on the incidence of lateral weight shifts of the torso in play.
  5. Describe the rotary forces applied to the femur during transitions between W-Sitting-LR and kneel-standing positions.
  6. Discuss the status of evidence regarding the contributions of habitual W-Sit-LR to musculoskeletal problems after childhood.
  7. Describe the condition of the long bones and knee joints in “miserable malalignment syndrome.”
  8. Explain the science that associates habitual, prolonged W-sitting-LR with miserable malalignment syndrome.
  9. Distinguish between common advice and kinesiologically healthy alternatives to W-Sitting.

Every healthcare professional who is a member of an order or association must complete hours of continuing education each year. All of our courses are designed to help you accumulate these continuing education hours. However, the number of credits may vary depending on your profession and location. The information below is for information purposes only. We recommend that you confirm with your professional order and/or association.

For your information, Bia education aims to accredit its online education content in the U.S. and Europe as quickly as possible.

Practicing clinicians and students of pediatric physical therapy, orthotics, rehabilitation medicine, and orthopedics are the specific targeted clientele.

Content is not intended for use outside the scope of the learner’s license or regulation. Continuing education courses should not be taken by individuals who are not licensed or otherwise regulated, except, as they are involved in a specific plan of care. By participating in this course, the participant agrees to respect his/her professional scope of practice.

English version (original):
The instructor speaks English and the available handout is in English.

French version:
The course has been translated and dubbed by a physiotherapist. Handout is available in French.

Know the neuromusculoskeletal anatomy, kinesiology and physiology of adaptation to the history of use.

Yes, it is possible to extend access to your courses through our Bia membership. This membership allows you, among other benefits, to enjoy extended access to the courses beyond the initial 6 months.

Each health professional who is a member of a college or association must complete continuing education units (CEU) annually. Here is some information about kinesiologists, physiotherapists and physiotherapy technologists.

Kinesiologist, FKQ

All accredited members of the Fédération des Kinésiologues du Québec (FKQ) must accumulate 30 credits of recognized continuing education every two years from the year of their accreditation. These credits can be obtained from continuing education offered by the FKQ and/or other organizations recognized by the FKQ. In order to facilitate your task of analyzing the credits granted to your course, the FKQ Continuing Education Committee gives you access to an equivalency grid.

For each* of your courses at Bia education, you will receive a certificate of participation confirming the number of hours of course received.

*Excluding course not accessible to kinesiologists, this exclusion will be mentioned in the course description.

Kinesiologist-kinesitherapist, A.K.K.O.M.Q.

All members of the A.K.K.O.M.Q. must accumulate continuing education units. The association intends to ensure the safety and quality of kinesiology and kinesiology-kinesitherapy interventions, by requiring its members to maintain and improve their knowledge through the many continuing education courses offered annually, and to put their skills into practice while respecting the code of ethics. Credits can be obtained from continuing education offered by the FKQ and/or other organizations recognized by the FKQ.

For each* of your courses at Bia education, you will receive a certificate of participation confirming the number of hours of course received.

*Excluding course not accessible to kinesitherapists, this exclusion will be mentioned in the course description.

Physiotherapist and physiotherapy technologist, OPPQ

In the case of physiotherapists, each member must have a minimum of 45 hours of continuing education units (CEU) during the reference period, which is three years. Of these 45 hours, at least 30 hours must be accumulated in formal learning activities. The remaining continuing education hours can be accumulated in autonomous, formal learning activities or in a combination of both categories.

A CEU is equivalent to one hour of course, which is the actual time spent by the member to acquire or update his or her knowledge or skills. In the context of a formal activity, the member is in a learning situation when acting as a participant. Time spent on breaks, meals or any other activity without academic content should therefore be subtracted from the calculation of CEUs.

A formal learning activity is defined as an activity designed and delivered by experts in the subject matter and with a predetermined structure, content, objectives and duration. All the course offered by Bia education are therefore likely to be considered as a formal learning activity. During your course at Bia education, you will receive a certificate attesting to the number of hours of continuous education granted to the event.

Then, it is the physiotherapist’s role to define whether the suggested training theme is related to his or her practice and will allow him or her to optimize his or her professional competence.
