This introductory program features a review of relevant pediatric orthopedic issues and sciences pursuant to neuromotor re-education for posture and torso alignment, including:

  • Skeletal modeling mechanisms and influences
  • The role of the somatosensory system in postural control acquisition and movement
  • Fundamentals of S.A. Sahrmann’s muscle balance theory
  • Practice-related skills acquisition

Attendees will validate their understanding of these principles and issues in the afternoon lab session, using the TheraTogs Posture & Torso Alignment system. Grouped in teams of three, attendees will be guided through a series of donning and strapping applications that demonstrate the biomechanical principles and management techniques reviewed in the morning session.
