A Certified TheraTogs™ Fitter (CTF) Level II Course with Supporting Sciences & Strapping Strategies

This program builds upon the foundation of the PTA CTF Level I Course. It features a brief review of pediatric orthopedic lower-extremity (LE) skeletal and joint development as it occurs in the transverse plane i.e. medial and lateral joint rotation and medial and lateral long bone torsion – and in relation to deviations in foot progression angle (FPA) i.e. in-toeing and out-toeing.

Lecture content includes these topics:

  • Transverse-plane (TP) LE skeletal and joint modeling events with rotation strapping precautions
  • A review of elements of postural control acquisition and maintenance that pertain to TP LE bone and joint development and alignment
  • An implementation of SA Sahrmann’s muscle balance theory in the context of the kinesiology of LE rotation strapping applications
  • A review of three musculoskeletal assessment procedures used to identify sources of deviations in FPA and to document changes in a replicable manner.
