Description

This digital seminar is currently on pre-order meaning that the video will not be ready until 2-3 weeks after the program has taken place.

My name is Rosemary Peng, PT, MST. As a clinician who has worked for more than 20 years in pediatric settings, I’ve seen and treated patients with congenital muscular torticollis (CMT). In the past, I focused too much of my attention on treating the neck only and not checking for other asymmetries that can occur. This resulted in seeing minimal gains. What was I missing? There had to be a better way to treat this population. Finally, I discovered that by including 7 body structures in my examination I could effectively treat my patients by strengthening neck muscles, promoting better head posture, and improving fine and gross motor development of the child.

In this recording, learn and practice evidence-based tools found in the updated 2018 Clinical Practice Guidelines which I use to accurately assess and treat infants. You’ll enhance your skills by learning proven treatment techniques as well as alternative approaches that don’t make your patient feel discomfort and results in better outcomes. Ease the fear of parents or caregivers with clear goals and education. Walk away feeling confident and comfortable using these proven strategies that immediately carry over into your clinical setting.
