Course Name:

A Step Ahead: Effective Management of Excessive Pronation

Course Description:

This 2-credit-hour course is designed to introduce the participant to a growth learning model for patients with hypotonia and excessive pronation. Treatment of excessive and symptomatic pronation is important to aiding proper postural control and gait development in young children. While there are many orthotic treatment solutions, understanding the benefits of circumferential compression and triplanar control will help the participant effectively develop orthotic treatment plans. In this course, we will discuss the evaluation, fitting, follow up and graduation of orthotic treatment using Surestep SMOs. We will also express the importance of collaboration of the health care team and family education. This course will include multiple interactive portions where the participant will learn this material from a fresh perspective.
