Build your Scoliosis Knowledge
Join us for a one-hour interactive Health Professionals webinar to gain a better understanding of how to detect and screen for scoliosis. We will then dive deep into three different case studies from a bracing and rehabilitation point of view.
✓ Understand the methods of screening for scoliosis
✓ Learn about effective diagnosis techniques
✓ Explore early intervention, bracing and rehabilitation
ScoliCare’s mission is to deliver engaging and interactive opportunities for Health Professionals to stay up-to-date with accurate information, the latest evidence, and the best practices for scoliosis management. The aim is to ensure that successful patient outcomes aren’t compromised by myths and misconceptions.
