I could not have been more impressed by the 10 therapists that attended Rigo Concept-Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School (BSPTS) Level 1 Course this March. They came to Boston for six days to learn about non-surgical treatment approaches for the conditions of scoliosis and juvenile kyphosis. The course format included lecture, treatment observation, and hands-on treatment practice. As the course proceeded, the therapists built a deeper understanding about complexity of the conditions of scoliosis and kyphosis. Therefore, a deeper awareness about how the non-surgical approach with Rigo Concept could help manage these conditions. They worked hard mentally and physically. I know that they will do well using Rigo Concept-BSPTS for those who seek their non-surgical approach to care. Best of luck to this bright class of L1 therapists as they travel back to their hometown clinics. I look forward to hearing from them about their case outcomes as they participate as a strong contributor to a, or as they create a new, scoliosis care team. BSPTS is on a mission to provide state of the art and best practice training to more skilled physical therapists around the world in order to offer access to excellent care for those with the condition of scoliosis and juvenile kyphosis using the Rigo Concept-BSPTS.
We did it! Ten Physiotherapists traveled from Idaho, Louisianna, Tennessee, New York, Missouri, and local Texas towns to San Antonio, Texas for Level 1 Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School Rigo Concept Course.
Their goal of coming to this course was to learn the Rigo Concept to improve their understanding of scoliosis, non-surgical scoliosis management, and physiotherapy scoliosis treatment.
The 6-day course presents a combination of Rigo Concept lectures and hands-on clinical practice.
The small class size allows for close supervision and guided learning of the proper understanding and use of the newly learned Rigo Method physiotherapy scoliosis specific exercise strategies and techniques.
It was a pleasure, to spend a week with these amazing physiotherapists. Many of them are going home to a town, clinic, or hospital that has never treated scoliosis with physiotherapy. Most of them will be starting a whole new program focused on physiotherapy treatment of scoliosis. What an impact this group will have on the underserved population of people who have scoliosis in USA.
It was great to be in Texas with this crew learning and enjoying the spectacular weather. Thank you, Cori, for hosting!
Beautiful Boston spring weather as we learned the Rigo Concept physical therapy treatment for scoliosis at this L1 course.
So great to welcome and teach this set of engaged and energetic physical therapists in learning the BSPTS Concept by Rigo. The more PTs are educated in this method, the more options our patients have for the conservative treatment of scoliosis.
Dr. Rigo flew in to Boston from Barcelona, Spain for advanced instructor training and some after work musical fun.
