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 case 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.

Upon completion of the course, the attendee will be able to:

  1. Understand the specific precautions and the relative risk of performing orthopedic manual therapy on pediatric patients.
  2. Identify pediatric patients who are appropriate for orthopedic manual therapy.
  3. Discuss the benefits of manual physical therapy to minimize pain and maximize function in pediatric orthopedic patients.
