Torticollis and Plagiocephaly: A Comprehensive Evaluation and Treatment Strategies for Infants
Course Description: This course will provide evidenced-based evaluation and treatment strategies for infants diagnosed with torticollis. Observational techniques, various measurement tools and targeted pre- and post-partum history taking will be discussed in detail to provide participants with the foundation needed to analyze and develop an effective treatment plan. By considering a whole body approach to assessment, participants will learn how to appropriately screen and determine the need for outside referral. Common and novel treatment approaches will be reviewed with an emphasis on family training and creation of a home program that is both effective, adaptable, and achievable for the child’s caregivers.
