ACFAP Journal Club Meeting
- Toe Walking

 
 

Dr. Johnson has personal experience with pediatric toe walking with her son. She chose four articles for the group to discuss the different aspects of motor milestones/ development, motor reflexes, idiopathic toe walking, and research based article on different orthoses in the treatment of toe walking. Current and former officers presented each article.

Dr. Johnson brought with her different orthoses that her son had used in the past and present. She also answered a lot of the questions and shared her knowledge regarding this topic. Lastly, Dr. Johnson offered her suggestions on interpreting research articles for future journal clubs throughout our rotations and residencies.

We plan to continue this each semester due to a great turnout and feedbacks.
