DIAGNOSING HYPOPHOSPHATASIA (HPP): THE SIGNIFICANCE OF LOW ALKALINE PHOSPHATASE (ALP) AND ITS CONSEQUENCES (1.2 CEH)

Monday, April 16th, 2018 at 6:30pm at New York Medical College, Valhalla, NY

Meeting will be held in the Dining Room of the 19 Skyline Drive Facility Building (map and directions below)

 

Course Objectives:

1. To review and understand the pathophysiology and clinical manifestations of hypophosphatasia (HPP)

2. Recognize how to diagnose HPP and learn the differential diagnoses

3. To be able to create an appropriate rehabilitation program for these patients

  

Children with HPP exhibit skeletal compromise that results in lifelong complications such as abnormal gait, bone and muscle/joint pain, waddling gait, muscle/joint pain, fatigue and difficulty with daily physical activities; so often times, Physical Therapists are the first to see and identify patients with HPP.   The reason for these issues stem from LOW levels of Alkaline Phosphatase and therefore they get “soft bones.”  Unfortunately it can take several years of seeing multiple specialists before a HPP diagnosis is reached as this was a previously under-recognized disease, often mistaken for Osteoporosis, Rickets, OI, etc.  A child with HPP will often seek PT first to mitigate such clinical symptoms of HPP. 

 

Cost:

In person: free for members and student members; $20 for non-members

Via webinar: $10 for members and student members; $30 for non-members
