Description

Until now, choices were limited if you wanted to learn how to use kinesiology tape with special patient populations like the elderly or children.
You don’t have to memorize percentages of stretch or direction of tape in order to get safe, effective results when taping special populations.

FMT Pediatrics introduces the concept of functional kinesiology taping methods with focus on special considerations for the pediatric population. Additionally, this course includes reviews of current literature supporting the theories of kinesiology taping for the purposes of discomfort* control, rehabilitation, edema/swelling management, and a variety of pediatric and adolescent injuries. Assessment and screening techniques will be delivered to enhance students’ knowledge of common pediatric conditions.

Additionally, FMT Pediatrics includes a review of taping techniques for neurologic, orthopedic and postural conditions. Tape strategies for acute and chronic sport-related injury in the pediatric population will be discussed, practiced and evaluated. Conditions like toe walking, poor postural control, torticollis and scoliosis will be introduced and tape strategies for pediatric patients and clients will be covered. Special tape techniques for smaller bodies will also be presented.

Functional Movement Training (FMT) courses are taught by industry leading experts in movement assessment, performance and rehabilitation. CEUs may be offered for DC, ATC, PT, LMTs, LAc, OTs and personal trainers. If your profession & state is unavailable, we do not currently offer CEUs – however, we are continually adding additional licenses.

Jennifer Hutton, DPT

Instructor

Jennifer Hutton became interested in physical therapy at young age, when her youngest cousin was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. As he began treatments, Jennifer spent time observing him in different therapies, and subsequently determined that she would work with children in a similar capacity. She graduated from Loma Linda University with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2008, and moved back to her hometown Nashville, TN.

Jennifer currently works in one of the top children’s hospitals in Tennessee, treating the developmentally delayed population, as well as children with neurological and orthopedic diagnoses, both congenital and acquired. She is a Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA), Functional Movement System (FMS), and a Myodetox Level 1 Certified (manual therapy) provider, and is the lead physical therapist in a regional combined specialty hip clinic, which offers preoperative and postoperative rehabilitation programs for local patients, as well as coordinated treatment plans with out of state physical therapists. Dr. Hutton works in conjunction with progressive orthopedic surgeons to develop cohesive, minimally invasive treatment programs. This includes a physical therapy approach to children with Perthes disease. She and her partners create content to educate the public on treatment alternatives, which include varied options for rehabilitation.

Dr. Hutton is involved in several community efforts for children with disabilities. She volunteers building adaptive bicycles for her local Amtryke chapter. She also serves on a committee that organizes an annual triathlon and is developing an adaptive sports camp, both for children with special needs. Jennifer truly enjoys working with children and believes that helping them achieve their independence, and empowering them to move better, will be pivotal as they progress in life.
