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.
Course Objectives: By the end of this course the student will be able to…
This course will challenge the practitioner to make a paradigm shift: connecting breathing mechanics and postural control with management of trunk pressures. Through her model of postural control (Soda Pop Can Model), the speaker will link breathing mechanics with motor and physiologic behaviors (a multi-system perspective). She will present novel
research demonstrating the role of vocal folds as postural stabilizers, extending the concept of “core stability” from the vocal folds on the top of the trunk to the pelvic floor on the bottom. Numerous interventions will be presented that use positioning and ventilatory strategies to optimize motor performance. Neuromotor breathing retraining techniques and manual assistive cough techniques will be the focus of treatment labs.
Multiple patient cases will be presented throughout the course. The emphasis of the course will be on developing practical, quick clinical solutions for pediatric and adult patients in all practice settings.
