For the first time, clinicians and researchers from the Society on Scoliosis Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Treatment (SOSORT) and of the International Research Society on Spinal Deformities (IRSSD) will participate in a joint scientific meeting. The scientific meeting will be held from Wednesday May 25 to Saturday May 28, 2016 with a welcome reception on Tuesday May 24th. A pre-conference educational course on clinical scoliosis care (May 24th) and a post-conference research course (May 28th) will also be offered.
The Society on Scoliosis Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Treatment (SOSORT) was founded in 2004, and brings together scientists and clinicians focused on the conservative treatment of spinal deformities. SOSORT also led to the creation of the official journal of the society, the open BMC Scoliosis Journal (www.scoliosisjournal.com). SOSORT has also produced Consensus statements during many of the subsequent meetings on key topics including: bracing, exercises and reasons for justifying treatment. This year’s consensus will focus on updating the SOSORT guidelines on conservative treatment for scoliosis. Conferences are now held on the American continent every three years and in Europe otherwise. Recent SOSORT conferences were attended by representatives of 41 countries (Wiesbaden 2014) and 31 countries (Katowice 2015), respectively.
