Education Resources is thrilled to be able to offer this new course:
Connective Tissue Mobilization for Pediatric Therapists presented by a new member of our faculty; Patricia West-Low PT, MA, DPT, PCS
Research and clinical evidence suggest that connective tissue changes may contribute to postural malalignment and movement dysfunction in children. This course is designed to introduce pediatric Physical and Occupational Therapists to the scientific rationale for basic practices of connective tissue mobilization. Through structural alignment observation, and hands on practicums, participants will gain the ability to identify and treat connective tissue restrictions resulting in structural misalignments, which interfere with efficient functional movement. Participants will learn approaches to neuromuscular re-education to improve muscular control and coordination. Treatments specific to children with neuromotor impairment, musculoskeletal injury, post-surgical scars, and torticollis will be explored. Case examples will be presented.
