This lecture will explore how to assess idiopathic scoliosis, the conservative physiotherapy treatment options available such as Schroth, SEAS and Lyons method and the supporting research behind these techniques.
Rosemary Marchese is a physiotherapist that is dedicated to the conservative management of scoliosis using the Schroth, SEAS and Lyon methods. Rose has travelled extensively overseas to acquire her education in this area. She became frustrated with the often implemented ‘wait and see’ approach that saw scoliosis curves progress to the point of surgery. Having discovered the world of the Schroth method Rose travelled to New York to acquire her first certification. From there she began to treat scoliosis using this method and her learned physio skills. Her travels continued back to New York, as well as Dubrovnik, San Francsico, Milan and Barcelona, and she is now a member of SOSORT (The International Society of Scoliosis Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Treatment) and was the first person world-wide to be certified in Schroth, SEAS and Lyon methods. She is currently researching scoliosis treatment in a Master of Research at Macquarie University.
