Wow! Susan and I just got back from 10 days of intensive training at Scoliosis Rehab, Inc in Stevens Point Wisconsin. We spent over 65 hours learning the Schroth-based Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School Method (BSPTS). This 40 year old clinic in Spain is directed by Dr. Manuel Rigo MD, PhD, a world renowned professor and Physician specializing in conservative management of scoliosis.
Our certification course was offered by two of the few American physical therapists trained to teach this long standing European standard for scoliosis management. Our instructors: Beth Janssen and Patti Orthwein both received training with Dr. Rigo, at the E. Salva Institute for Rehabilitation of Spinal Deformities in Barcelona, Spain. They use these techniques in daily practice to help their patients affected by scoliosis. We are so excited to do the same here at Advance Physical Therapy.
