Scoliosis is a complex, 3-dimensional condition that affects a high number of our patient population. Current physical therapy curriculums lack the depth of information necessary for physical therapists to appropriately treat this very common condition.
Join Andrea Mendoza, Schroth-certified physiotherapist and Carl Ganzert, Certified Orthotist, for this full-day course packed with valuable theoretical information and clinical skills to identify and treat scoliosis at a basic level. Emphasis will be placed on the pathomechanism of scoliosis and learning recommended and contraindicated treatment principles.
Course Fee includes lunch on day of course.
Please note: This course will not teach specific Schroth Method exercises as they are complex and require much more than one day to learn. Participants will not be certified in The Schroth Method following this workshop — please see http://www.schroth-barcelonainstitute.com/ for more info on full certification courses.
