Course Description and Objectives
Scoliosis and hyperkyphosis are often under-diagnosed and under-treated conditions in both children and adults.  Whereas treatment for these conditions requires hands-on advanced continuing education, clinicians will benefit from improved understanding of diagnostic criteria of scoliosis and hyperkyphosis, including: identifying clinical signs of scoliosis and hyperkyphosis in adults and children, referring for x-ray diagnosis, coordinating care based upon key variables, and applying protective principles for scoliosis and hyperkyphosis in the clinical setting.   


Fundamental understanding scoliosis and hyperkyphosis
Overview of basic science, evaluation, indications for treatment and referral 
Explanation about the PT role coordination of care
Differentiation of physiotherapeutic scoliosis-specific exercise vs. general PT
Descriptions for “safe practices” for entry level therapists
References provided related to recent research on conservative management of scoliosis.
