Course Description: This single-day interactive course will focus on the evaluation and treatment of adolescent athletes as well as pediatric patients presenting with common musculoskeletal and neuromuscular dysfunctions. The purpose of this course is to advance the understanding of current research to provide best-practice care and optimal treatment progression in the clinic across the continuum of common childhood sports-related and developmental dysfunctions. A combination of lecture, small group case study discussion, and hands-on/experiential lab will ultimately lead to well-informed care and enhanced patient outcomes. The lecture will review physiological and psychological factors that are particular to adolescent and pediatric populations and rehabilitations strategies and appropriate communication considering those factors. The lecture content relating to the adolescent athlete will cover current literature on overall athletic development and sport demands, injury prevention, concussion, ACLR post-operative care, and return to sport progression and testing. Lecture content relating to the care of the pediatric patient will include torticollis, developmental delay, hypotonia, and idiopathic toe-walking. The course will include an emphasis on communication with all parties involved in patient success including parents/guardians, coaches and/or athletic trainers, and across healthcare specialties (consults for OT, orthotic prescription, etc.) to optimize patient recovery timelines and outcomes. Breakout lab sessions will consist of hands-on work to practice assessment and treatment interventions, as well as practice educational and communication strategies in small groups while being provided with instructor feedback. This will be an intermediate-level course building off participant experience and knowledge regarding the plan of care development, exercise prescription, and pain science.

  2. Therapists will participate in didactic learning and open discussion of the most recent clinically relevant evidence for physical therapy interventions applicable to the management of common pediatric presentations including torticollis, development delay, hypotonia, and idiopathic toe-walking
  3. Engage in pediatric patient handling techniques and patient/caregiver education strategies
  4. Therapists will understand specific lifestyle, physiologic, and psychologic factors unique to adolescent and pediatric populations and how those factors influence the plan of care development and the delivery and dosage of care
  5. Therapists will discuss the most recent clinical evidence, and clinical guidelines, and utilize case studies to apply logical treatment progression throughout the plan of care for youth athletes and younger patients presenting with common pediatric diagnoses including torticollis, hypotonia, developmental delay, and idiopathic toe-walking.
  6. Perform appropriate educational strategies for both patient and caregiver education to facilitate adherence to the prescribed physical therapy plan of care

LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Physical Therapy Assistants

  1. Develop an understanding of current sports science and physical therapy literature findings regarding best practice for the management of the youth athlete and their associated injuries
  2. Engage in the practice of pediatric handling skills and patient/caregiver education strategies

At the conclusion of the course Physical Therapists will be able to:

  1. Analyze and discuss physiological and psychological factors that are particular to adolescent and pediatric populations and apply that knowledge to determine optimal intervention selection and treatment parameters
  2. Effectively educate patients and caregivers about modifiable risk factors and prevention strategies for common adolescent sports injuries and pediatric impairments
  3. Perform a comprehensive examination and assessment for an adolescent and/or pediatric patient with evidence-informed decision-making to optimize outcomes through the appropriate plan of care development
  4. Design a physical therapy plan of care, including a return to sport progression, in accordance with current evidence to comprehensively address a youth athlete’s deficits and optimize response to physical therapy intervention
  5. Verbalize appropriate home exercise and sport-specific training recommendations for patients based on their current health status to serve as an adjunct to a physical therapy plan of care
  6. Verbalize appropriate home exercise, developmental play, and pediatric care strategy recommendations for pediatric patients based on their current impairments to complement a physical therapy plan of care

At the conclusion of the course Therapists Assistants will be able to:

  1. Integrate findings from the clinical evaluation of the physical therapist to provide appropriate exercise and manual therapy interventions to treat impairments presenting in adolescent and pediatric patients
  2. Identify when modifications to exercise intensity for the youth athlete are indicated and how to apply progression/regression strategies with the plan of care established by the physical therapist

Self-Study Course Information: The Self-Study will not be available until July 1, 2022.

COURSE DESCRIPTION: This online course will focus on the evaluation and treatment of adolescent athletes with a specific emphasis on lifestyle factors and bone health, as well as the evaluation of pediatric patients and typical developmental stages and milestones. One purpose of this course is to advance the understanding of current research to provide best-practice care and optimal treatment progression in the clinic for adolescent bony pathologies such as physeal overuse injuries and fractures. The other purpose of this course is to advance the understanding of fetal development principles and typical milestone progression in conjunction with current research on the practical features necessary to create and execute a successful plan of care for pediatric patients. Recordings will review the role of lifestyle factors including diet and physical activity in the developing bony skeleton, as well as the assessment and management of apophyseal and physeal injuries. Recordings will also cover foundational principles of fetal development and typical childhood milestone progression and how to best evaluate and provide treatment for infant and toddler populations with an emphasis on how to effectively establish a therapeutic alliance with both the patient and the caretaker.
