Research Review: SOSORT Guidelines Go Beyond the Cobb Angle

By Rosemary Marchese, Physiotherapist 

This month we have decided to do something a little different and explore the 2016 SOSORT Guidelines for the treatment of adolescents with idiopathic scoliosis (Negrini et al, 2018). Instead of a typical review, we are pleased to share with you this important presentation on how the SOSORT guidelines really do go beyond just focusing on the Cobb angle. Remember always, treat the human, not just the spine!
