CEU Course Description
Manipulative therapeutic techniques differ between professionals and health conditions, and between infants and children / adolescents. Pediatric manual therapy and its safety has provoked debates and ethical challenges. The goals of this CEU course are to describe obstetric and perinatal outcomes in a population of children with a confirmed congenital muscular torticollis (CMT) diagnosis, review the effectiveness and harms of specific spinal manual therapy (SMT) techniques for infants, children, and adolescents, and investigate muscle fibrosis in CMT infants by quantifying echotexture and muscle thickness during the course of treatment.
CEU Course Objectives
1. Compare and contrast safe treatment technique in infants and children vs. those that might be associated with severe harms.
2. Conclude how CMT is related to the side of the torticollis.
3. Describe how the K value relates to echo intensities, severity of muscle fibrosis, treatment course, and ultrasonography frequency.
4. Explain what has been suggested as a direct cause of CMT.
5. Name three obstetric and newborn risk factors that have been proposed for the development of congenital muscular torticollis.
