Many professionals use evidence-based practice to treat spinal disease for both conservative and surgical treatment, but this is still scarce in the clinical practice of many.

Scoliosis: how is it treated?

Scoliosis is treated by physiotherapists and orthopedists. With the advancement of science and more studies, many professionals came to know the specific exercises and specialised to better treat patients with scoliosis, but RPG is still widely used.

What would you like to improve on the clinical practice currently followed in your country? 

I believe that to improve clinical practice, professionals should follow the best evidence in the literature to treat patients with scoliosis.

What can the Scoliosis Online Master Course PPSCT give you, and how do you think you can apply this knowledge in your daily clinical practice?
