Evidence-Based Physical Therapy Management of the Child with Osteogenesis Imperfecta


This course provides an overview of the management of children with osteogenesis imperfecta, including current evidence for best practices in this patient population. We will discuss pathology, clinical presentation, and current medical and surgical intervention approaches. We will also explore evidence-based therapeutic strategies for facilitation of motor skill development, including considerations for safe handling, with a focus on interventions that promote participation and functional gains. Therapists working with this population should be aware of appropriate modifications and adaptive equipment considerations, and should be prepared to educate parents on how to balance safety principles with adequate exposure to movement experiences.
