Module 4 Scoliosis Management

October 18th, 2020 - 12:00pm-4:00pm CST

Patients with a scoliosis will commonly present to a chiropractor with chronic pain.  The incidence of scoliosis increases with age – one in three people over the age of 65 have a scoliosis.  Therefore, with our aging population, there is a need to update the practical skills of chiropractors in assessing and managing a patient with a scoliosis.  

 This seminar will bring the chiropractic Clinician and Researcher up-to-date with the latest evidenced-based information about non-surgical management of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, adult degenerative scoliosis, as well as thoracic hyperkyphosis.  Scoliosis screening, diagnosis, red-flags will be covered in detail.

Upon completion of this course you will be able to:

  1. Accurately perform a scoliosis screening consistent with the SRS guidelines.
  2. Differentiate between scoliotic and non-scoliotic postural deviations.
  3. Understand the distinctive neurological and orthopaedic tests that can help identify red flags associated with scoliosis.
  4. Correctly evaluate plain film radiographs including the measurement of Cobb angle, Risser sign, sacral obliquity, coronal and sagittal balance.
  5. Differentiate between the treatment and management options for children and adults.
  6. Understanding the nature of chronic spinal pain associated with scoliosis and kyphosis, and the non-surgical strategies in the management of spinal deformity pain.

Formulate an appropriate scoliosis management plan for a patient including patients with postural scoliosis, idiopathic scoliosis and degenerative scoliosis.
