A Distinctive Approach to Pediatric Toe Walking
presented by Liesa Ritchie-Persaud

It is common for a clinician to lack direction when a child presents with the diagnosis of "idiopathic toe walking." The situation is often frustrating for all involved and frequently results in inaccurate evaluation with ineffective intervention and poor achievement of results. This course discusses the consequences of incorrect and delayed intervention, and reviews the evidence related to toe walking and ideal gait. The result is an alternate, and effective approach to pediatric toe walking. Participants will learn the necessity of timely and accurate management of pediatric toe walking, and how to recognize when a child has impaired biomechanics and/or sensory dysfunction that is negatively affecting their gait pattern.

This course describes the reasons to consider specific sensory systems as they relate to toe walking and ideal gait, and how to recognize the sensory-based pathologies relevant to toe walking. Methods to screen for sensory dysfunction and pathologies relevant to toe walking are explained, while scientific and research findings are described from a clinical perspective. Learn more
