What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine in an S shaped form. It is a side to side curve of over ten degrees. It can affect any age from before birth (congenital), in young children (early onset), teenagers (adolescent idiopathic) where the scoliosis has developed through puberty / growth and onto adulthood. The curve can change dramatically around the ages of 10-20 years old. Adolescent scoliosis comprises 80% of cases.
Physiotherapists, personal trainers, carers, scoliosis warriors and parents will gain the expertise of working with scoliosis clients safely and effectively. The ability to train those clients to their maximum potential, increasing their knowledge of exercises for this particular condition. Increased understanding of the anatomy and physiology of scoliosis and how it can impact on a person's quality of life.
Scoliosis warriors and parents will also benefit from this course.
