This exciting workshop covers therapeutic evaluation & treatment of pediatric equinus gait (“toe walking”) – offering a new, structured approach to evaluation and management of this common pediatric indication.
It is common for the practitioner to feel lost when a child presents with a toe walking gait pattern. Both evaluation and treatment of these children are often frustrating for all involved and frequently results 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 re-occurrence of the problem.
However, if the clinician asks the right questions and follows a deliberate approach, she or he can address toe walking with better outcomes and less frustration. This excellent course is designed to alleviate the chaotic approach to the treatment of pediatric toe walking by giving attendees exactly what they need – the right questions to ask, and a deliberate, organized approach to intervention.
