ISICO in its approach to the conservative treatment of scoliosis is totally consistent with the SOSORT guidelines of Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation treatment of idiopathic scoliosis during growth in all passages starting from the clinical assessment and the treatment with orthesis up to the physiotherapic treatment with the SEAS exercises.
Hence, the SEAS principles can be properly applied according to the objectives and purposes for which they were defined and developed, only in a context consistent with these guidelines
At the end of the SEAS courses the participants are asked to sign a statement that only those who are consistent and in line with these SOSORT guidelines in their daily clinical practise, can publicly declare (eg on brochures, website etc.) that they apply the SEAS approach to their patients, furthermore being conscious that the SEAS Accreditations are valid and can be obtained with a final examination only for those who have declared that their approach to scoliosis is in association with respect to these guidelines.
