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.   

Objectives:

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.

CEUs: 30
