01. Discuss the skeletal modeling process that influences long bone torsion and explain the modeling “window of opportunity.”
02. Describe the ideal changes in growing bone design that occur in the transverse plane in the pelvis and femur in children born at full-term gestation.
03. Relate foot position — pronation and supination — to body weight distribution on the feet in standing and walking.
04. Relate toeing in and toeing out to body weight distribution on the feet in standing and walking, and to muscle recruitment strategies needed to maintain the upright position.
05. Explain the role of the Iliotibial band (ITB) and the “deltoid of the hip” in maintaining pelvic alignment and postural control in gait.
06. Describe the influence of a medially-rotated knee axis on ipsilateral iliotibial band alignment and competence.
07. Distinguish between femoral antetorsion and anteversion when using hip rotation strapping.
08. Explain the precautions regarding the use of rotation strapping across the hip in individuals
aged seven years and older.
09. Explain the femoral torsion “Green Zone” precaution regarding the use of hip lateral rotation strapping to align the knee axis on the frontal plane.
10. Attendees who successfully complete this didactic program qualify to attend the associated lab course to obtain certification as a TheraTogs Fitter (CTF) Level II.
