Pediatric In-Toeing & Out-Toeing Management for Neuromotor Training

This program builds upon the foundation laid in the Posture
& Torso Alignment (CTF Level I) workshop. It features a brief
review of pediatric orthopedic lower-extremity (LE) skeletal
and joint development as it occurs in the transverse plane –
i.e. medial and lateral joint rotation and medial and lateral
long bone torsion – and in relation to deviations in foot
progression angle (FPA) – i.e. in-toeing and out-toeing.
Lecture content includes these topics:
• Transverse-plane (TP) LE skeletal and joint modeling events
with rotation strapping precautions
• A review of elements of postural control acquisition and
maintenance that pertain to TP LE bone and joint
development and alignment
• An implementation of SA Sahrmann’s muscle balance
theory in the context of the kinesiology of LE rotation
strapping applications
• A review of three musculoskeletal assessment procedures
used to identify sources of deviations in FPA and to
document changes in a replicable manner.
In the afternoon lab sessions, attendees form teams of three
to:
• Learn, practice, and demonstrate three LE musculoskeletal
assessments that pertain to TP alignment and gait problems
o hip rotation ROM in hip extension o modified Ryder’s test o
modified thigh-foot angle
• Demonstrate the biomechanical principles and
management techniques reviewed in the morning session via
use of the TheraTogs Lower Extremity System
