BSPTS Concept by Rigo

Level One Certification Course

Course Description

The BSPTS (Barcelona Scoliosis PT School) Level One certification course curriculum includes Rigo Concept principles (based upon Schroth) of 3-D exercises for sensory-motor and kinesthetic development. This course builds upon the Base Course information about anatomy, etiology, clinical and radiological examination, curve classification and treatment guidelines. Participants will learn “unloaded” exercises for achievable and safe entry-level physical therapist clinical application. The course balances lecture and lab for each exercise position and includes a patient demonstration. Additional topics include bracing, home program prescription, and ADL education. Students will complete a written examination at the end of the course.
