Event Outline 

Join us for a one-hour webinar to update your clinical knowledge and understanding of best practice management options for diagnosing and treating scoliosis.

The event will provide Chiropractors with the latest evidenced-based information on scoliosis screening methods, effective diagnosis techniques as well as non-surgical management options related to early intervention, bracing and rehabilitation.

Importantly this webinar will help define the role of the Chiropractor in the healthcare community with a focus on when chiropractic management and treatment are appropriate to when collaboration and co-management are the best option.
