The Scoliosis Research Society recognizes Physiotherapy Scoliosis Specific Exercise (PSSE) including the Schroth Method as a viable conservative
approach to treating Idiopathic Scoliosis, adult degenerative scoliosis and hyper-kyphosis. The International Society on Scoliosis Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Treatment (SOSORT) recommends that people with scoliosis remain active in the sport of their choice due to the psychological and neuromotor benefits of exercise and improvement in general organic well-being. Since there are no specific guidelines to help adults with scoliosis and hyperkyphosis choose safe fitness exercises, this 3-day course presents the theory and evidence supporting PSSE to help inform exercise recommendations for these adult populations.
Dynamic skills labs will focus on assessing the Pilates client with scoliosis and hyperkyphosis and on modifying Mat Pilates exercises. The Pilates teacher will understand how to collaborate with other health care professionals in order to develop a team approach for their client with scoliosis and hyperkyphosis.
