I have the honour to invite you to participate in the 10th SOSORT (Society on Scoliosis Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Treatment) Annual Meeting.

SOSORT as the Study Group on Scoliosis Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Treatment came into being in 2004 during the first Barcelona Meeting, which featured scientists and clinicians working in the field of the conservative treatment of spinal deformities. Due to the lack of an international society addressing the topic, participants of the meeting decided to create a scientific society and a journal that would enable presenting and popularizing the knowledge of non-operative treatment of spinal deformities. During the 2nd meeting in Milan in 2005 the first Consensus Meeting was held, developing three key topics: bracing, exercises and reasons for treatment. After the success of the Milan meeting, its participants decided that the study group will be transformed into a scientific society and will organize annual conferences. The conference in Poznań in 2006 was the first regular annual conference of SOSORT held along with workshops and an educational session for students.  The official journal of the society was set up and named Scoliosis (www.scoliosisjournal.com). Since then the number of SOSORT members and conference participants has increased. The conferences are held in Europe and every three years on the American continent. In 2006 participants from 17 countries took part in the Annual Meeting. This year’s conference (Wiesbaden 2014) was attended by representatives of 41 countries.

For years SOSORT has been cooperating with other societies, in particular with IRSSD (The International Research Society of Spinal Deformities), with which a joint conference in Canada is planned for 2016.

At present, the consensus of conservative scoliosis treatment is being created in cooperation with SRS (Scoliosis Research Society) experts. During the conference in Katowice we will host not only leading specialists – members of SOSORT, but also the SRS President and the Chair of the Non-Operative Committee of SRS.


I would also like to invite all those who are interested in the topic of conservative treatment of spinal deformities, particularly doctors and physiotherapists for the 5th SOSORT Educational Course, which will be held as a Pre-Meeting. The course will be conducted by leading specialists from all over the world.

I would like most warmly to invite to active participation not only SOSORT experts, but all scientists and professionals interested in the topic of non-operative scoliosis treatment.

See you in Katowice during scientific disputes, presentations and extra attractions planned for the conference.

Local Host

I wish to thank you all for the kind words and consideration.

I strongly believe that this was the best SOSORT Meeting ever, even if I believe it will be surpassed by Katowice, like it always happened in the past, being the last the best Meeting. As always, mistakes can have been done, but they were not important. I think that creating guidelines for future meetings and educational courses will help preventing these mistakes for the future.

We had some discussions among the founders, and the overall perception of many of us are resumed in these random sentences that have been given by some of us:

  • the train is out of the station
  • the adolescent has grown in a young adult
  • we are in front of the world now
  • SOSORT cannot be stopped any more
  • the Society has its own life now

These sentences all converge on the same point: the young kid SOSORT has grown up, and now begins to have its own life.
