§ Describe the modeling effects of compression, tension, cantilever flexure, and loaded, torsional torque strains.
§ Identify these features of immaturity of skeletal structure and alignment: increased medial femoral torsion, genu varum, genu valgum, and ankle valgus.
§ Describe the functional influences of neonatal soft tissue constraints at the hip and knee joints on skeletal and motor development.
§ Discuss postural control development in terms of the somatosensory system, compensatory and anticipatory adjustments, and weight distribution through the base of support.
§ Differentiate between muscle dominance and muscle strength in the context of a force couple imbalance.
§ Explain the principle of relative flexibility, and provide 2 examples of this phenomenon.
§ Describe the influences of muscle imbalance on the passive and active muscle length tension relationships, and relate them to TheraTogs™ strapping applications.
§ Distinguish between anteversion and antetorsion of the femur, and explain the clinical significance of this distinction in terms of lateral rotation strapping across the hip joint.
§ Participate in clinical problem-solving groups that are challenged with the details of a case evaluation.
§ Correctly sort the findings, obtained for the presented case, into orthopedic categories of problems.
§ Assign a treatment strategy to each problem, considering the probable stage of skeletal modeling.
§ Relate the findings to recorded postural, weight-distribution, and gait patterns.
§ Build a list of 5 management priorities for the assigned case.
§ Discuss the material and design properties of TheraTogs garments, cuffs, and straps, and apply them with principles of muscle balance theory, weight distribution, and modeling prospects in mind.
§ Demonstrate donning and doffing of TheraTogs garments and 3 strapping systems.
