About the event

Prefabricated orthotics have been used by clinicians to reverse or maintain lost range of motion due to contractures for many years. Traditionally, braces for contracture treatment are fit so that the brace maintains the joint at a comfortable end range stretch. Unfortunately, this widely used fitting method does little more than to maintain lost range of motion. This course will introduce participants to various alternative methods of orthotic fitting, including progressive extension orthotic fitting and the use of dynamic or static-dynamic braces to maximize patient rehabilitation. Clinical pathways will be discussed matching the type of orthotic therapy which may be most appropriate to select based upon the underlying joint pathology. The NeuroStretch™ Passive Range of Motion and Joint Assessment Technique will be demonstrated during the course for assessing the potential of joint rehabilitation. The Palpation Method of Brace Fitting will be taught to allow participants to evaluate the stretch provided by a brace to ensure optimal therapeutic stretching is provided by the brace. Lecture, case study presentations, and clinical assessment demonstrations are implemented to enhance the learning process
