An Engaging, Hands-On TheraTogs Fitter Lab

First, you'll apply the didactic program principles and strategies in this supervised, hands-on lab program, beginning with the measurement of sagittal-plane spinal and pelvic alignment in sitting and standing positions.

Then you'll move on acquiring and demonstrating competence in donning TheraTogs garments and assorted straps to optimize postural alignment and bodyweight loading on the feet in standing position.

Within two weeks following successful completion of the lab sessions and exams, you'll receive a Certified TheraTogs Fitter – Level I credential.

PRE-REQUISITES: You must have successfully completed the didactic session of Posture & Torso Alignment in Pediatric Orthopedic Development, including having passed the didactic examination. Precourse review materials are assigned to expedite learning in this lab program.

During the lab

You'll be expected to demonstrate competence — and to pass the related exam — in measuring four components of sagittal-plane alignment of the thoracic spine and pelvis in sitting and standing positions and in donning the garments, facilitating desired alignment changes, and using straps effectively to address these issues:

👉 Flexible thoracic kyphosis

👉 Flexible shoulder protraction with scapular abduction

👉 Flexible thoracolumbar kyphosis

👉 Flexible lumbar lordosis

👉 Flexible thoracolumbar lordosis

👉 Excessive pelvic anteversion

👉 Diminished pelvic anteversion

Podcast: The Latest TheraTogs Research Study

Billi Cusick sits down with wiredOn podcast host Dr. Mindy Silva to discuss the most recent TheraTogs research.

In this hour-long conversation, they delve into the realm of TheraTogs research and the underlying reasons why past studies have fallen short in fully grasping the profound therapeutic advantages of TheraTogs.
