This course explores the ideal sequence of neuromotor acquisition and resting postures, and documents the relationship of faulty trunk control to limb muscle contracture in children with diplegic CP.

Instructor Deborah Stack, PT DPT PCS,  discusses sensory, biomechanical, kinesiological, and neuromotor aspects of both normal and compromised development of trunk alignment and control. She/he describes the influence of postural alignment and control on movement acquisition and skills, and offers suggestions for science-based orthotic intervention.

Finally, the course introduces the new code-verified TherAlign Dragonfly™ TLSO System as an example of a modality that can effectively address postural management issues.
