Presenter: Azharuddin Fazalbhoy 

This webinar will provide practical steps for identifying patients with scoliosis from early adulthood to geriatric including patients at risk of scoliosis progression. You will be presented with non-surgical treatment options that could be useful in managing patients and the emerging evidence for the use of these interventions. Learn what you can effectively manage as an osteopath and what further steps need to be taken to co-manage a scoliosis patient with a specialist.

People are living longer and the population of older adults is increasing, therefore our understanding of chronic disease and management is a key area of focus. The emphasis of this age group is to maintain function and good quality of life so we now recognize and manage conditions in this population of adults that in the past would simply be aligned with ageing and degeneration. 

Spinal degeneration and deformation is a major concern stemming from a variety of factors including, but not limited to, poor bone health, premature/advanced degeneration, and some suggestion of poor bone formation in adolescence and early adulthood. Scoliosis is also common with many presenting in moderate to severe pain, significant loss of function, and neurological compromise. This webinar will provide practical steps for identifying such patients from early adulthood to geriatric including patients at risk of scoliosis progression. 

Objectives of this webinar:

  • Classifications of adult scoliosis – patients 18yrs and onwards 

  • Factors impacting effective non-surgical management 

  • Identifying risk factors associated with curve progression

  • Treatment and management options
