Seven amazing therapists traveled to Boston to level up in their Rigo Concept training. On a broad scale, we grew in the knowledge of scoliosis non surgical management, quality of scoliosis specific exercise and treatment options, and acquired insights in our roles of both a liaison to the orthotist and for support of the patient with brace adherence. For the individual patient, we dove deeper into how we combine our clinical and radiological findings to improve our skills in understanding a person’s risk of progression, prognosis, and specific care plan development that balances the literature recommendations with the goals of the MD and the patient. I am so proud of these therapist’s hard work and dedication. I am excited to see how their on-going work impacts scoliosis treatments in their hometowns.
