Orthopedic Manual Therapy for the Pediatric Patient
Published by Ohio Physical Therapy Association and Arizona Physical Therapy Association



Summary
This session will explain how orthopedic manual physical therapy can be an effective tool to treat the pediatric orthopedic population. Pediatric patients are not tiny adults, they have conditions and injuries that are specific to their population and without proper understanding the orthopedic manual therapist risks injuring these patients. Evidence supporting the use of manual therapy in pediatric patients will be presented. Specific precautions and relative risk of injury from manual therapy in the pediatric population will be presented. Using examples of common pediatric conditions, this session will highlight the differences and similarities between pediatric and adult patients and show how manual therapy can be an effective tool to treat the less familiar pediatric orthopedic patient.
