Hospital-based: Outpatient

Idiopathic Toe Walking Treatment Interventions Selected Through a Biomechanical Approach

Sunday, November 11
10:15 AM - 11:45 AM
Location: Ballroom E/F/G - Convention Center

Through the course of the research entitled, Two-Pull Carbon Fiber Ankle Foot Orthotics vs Serial Casting in the Treatment of Idiopathic Toe Walking: A Randomized Control Trial, the researchers developed algorithms based on biomechanics to identify the appropriate selection of treatment interventions and timing of the interventions to ensure successful outcomes for children with a diagnosis of idiopathic toe walking. Participants will gain information on how to properly select and identify appropriate treatment interventions throughout a patient's course of treatment for idiopathic toe walking.
