Scoliosis Presentation

Maureen Dwight presented a paper on scoliosis at the National Orthopaedic Division Conference held on October 20th, in London Ontario.  This will represent her third presentation to treatment professionals on managing and treating scoliosis.  These engagements have been based on the pater she  co-authored last year on scoliosis treatment.  Although primarily written for treating professions, it is available on our website at http://orthophysio.com/?s=scoliosis. These efforts are helping to raise the awareness of treatment professionals on evidence-based treatments for scoliosis.  This year she will be attending the International scoliosis conference (SOSORT http://sosort2018.com/ ) in Dubrovnik Croatia.
