Pedorthic Footcare Association Live Webinar

July 30, 2014 | 7 PM - 8 PM Eastern
Age-Specific Protocols for Treatment of Pediatric Flatfeet
Presented by Roberta Nole, MA, PT, C. Ped.

This presentation will explain the rationale and importance of early intervention when treating children diagnosed with pediatric flat foot.  The presenter will discuss common myths related to the treatment (or lack thereof!) of childhood foot disorders and why ‘blind neglect’ is not the appropriate course of treatment.  It will provide the participants age specific protocols to help them determine when treatment intervention is necessary, and tools for educating parents and referring practitioners on the importance of early management.  This session will review why ‘pain’ should not be the only consideration when determining whether or not to treat a child, and why other factors such as posture, strength, endurance, coordination and balance should be given equal attention.

Common Pre-teen and Adolescent Pathologies:  How to Prevent Them by Treating the Foot
Presented by Roberta Nole, MA, PT, C. Ped.

One of the most commonly injured parts of the body in adolescents is the foot and ankle, particularly those involved in sports. More than 2.6 million children are treated in the emergency department each year for sports and recreational-related injuries.  Therefore it is prudent to understand functional foot types that may predispose youths to particular pathological conditions and risk of injury. This webinar will educate the participants on an easy to learn 4 step method of identifying 6 functional foot groups by examination of gait.  It will also teach about particular musculoskeletal pathologies common to each group, and how to biomechanically manage each group using a prefabricated orthotic selection process.  Treating the pre-teen and adolescent [foot type] before the injury happens is the best form of prevention, while eliminating the chance for repeated, chronic injuries that could potentially have long term implications later affecting them in adulthood.

There are many pathologies and foot problems that are very complicated and quite uncommon. This course will review many of the different diseases and complications that result in severe deformities, biomechanical deficiencies, etc. The course will then utilize hands-on demonstrations to illustrate how to use specifically appropriate shoes, shoe modifications and foot orthoses to treat these more complicated pathologies. Students will then be required to review a case study and fabricate appropriate solutions.

This program has been awarded 18.25 Category 1 Scientific Credits by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics (ABC).
