Addressed to all people interested in acquiring specific basic knowledge on scoliosis and other spinal disorders.
COURSE DURATION AND FEATURES
You can do the course at your own pace. The limit time to do it is: 22 weeks.
The pedagogical contents, 41 videos in total, 10-12 minutes average each, during 11 units, with one self assessment in each unit.
To obtain the final certification a Final Knowledge Exam must be done.
SPECIFIC OBJETIVES OF THE BASIC LEVEL
Train the students to:
- Be an active member of a multidisciplinary team, for the treatment of the deformities of the spine.
- Understand the ethiopathogenesis and pathomechanism of the morphological alterations of the spine in the sagittal plane, as well as the idiopathic scoliosis.
- Carry out a clinical and functional assessment of the patient with scoliosis and elaborate a complete clinical history.
- Make a correct clinical and functional diagnosis of the morphological alterations of the sagittal plane and the scoliosis.
- Use and interpret the questionnaires about the life quality of the patient with scoliosis.
- Assess and interpret the additional radiological tests of the patient with scoliosis using digital tools for its assessment, diagnosis , comprehension and prognosis.
- Assess, analyze and understand the orthopedic treatment to be used in the deformities of the spine.
- Understand the importance of the use of scientific evidence in the non-surgical treatment of the scoliosis.
- Apply the SOSORT Guide for the Clinical Practice, published in 2018.
