Toe walking

Instructor:

Un bébé qui marche sur la pointe des pieds.

This course addresses therapeutic evaluation & treatment of pediatric equinus gait (“toe walking”). It is common for the practitioner to feel lost when a child presents with a toe walking gait patern. Both evaluation and treatment of these children are often frustrating for all involved and frequently result in inaccurate evaluation with ineffective intervention and poor achievement of results. Long term results are rarely achieved with either resultant surgical intervention and/or a reoccurrence of the problem. However, establishing a specific approach to treating this type of patient can be made less frustrating and more rewarding by asking the right questions and forming a deliberate approach.

This course is excellent for alleviating a chaotic approach to the treatment of pediatric toe walking. Liesa teaches practitioners to assess toe walking through a holistic view of the child, including biomechanics & sensory processing, to develop a systematic approach and devise an effective treatment plan. Through organized assessment, specific data will be used to direct the clinician to potential etiologies. You will learn to develop interventions based on etiologies to produce successful long-term outcomes.

This course challenges the clinician to ask the correct questions in order to form a systematic approach to treating the child who “toe walks.”  This course will change how you think about and treat children with equinus gait.
