Programs available include:
- Clinical Approach to the Evaluation and Treatment of Congenital Muscular Torticollis
With the implementation of the back to sleep program by the American Academy of Pediatrics, therapists are noting an increased incidence of children with positional torticollis and plagiocephaly (flattening of the head). This program presents guidelines for successful examination and progression of treatment and discharge for patients with torticollis. Guidelines incorporate current evidence and accepted treatment strategies. Two day programs will include a laboratory component focusing on therapeutic handling for infants of various ages.
- Smart Design: The Art of Splinting
The Hand Therapy staff at Hospital for Special Surgery believes that splinting is an art and that practice makes perfect. Repeated exposure is critical to the learning process that a hand therapist must experience when learning basic and advanced splinting techniques. The hand therapy staff invites you to improve your current splinting abilities. Instruction and guided hands-on lab sessions are designed to help therapists enhance their current splinting abilities. We will provide the opportunity to create a variety of splints.
