I had the privilege of studying and learning along Polish scoliosis experts Dr. n Med Marianna Bialek and Andrzej M'hango D.O. in 2016 and earlier this year. I was trained and finally certified in the complex FITS Method for the conservative treatment of scoliosis and other postural deformities including Scheuermann's disease, chest deformities, limb length discrepancies and limb misalignments. The FITS Method has been recognized by the SOSORT as one of seven major PSSE schools in the world. Physiotherapy Scoliosis Specific Exercises (PSSE) are not considered as an alternative to bracing or surgery but as a therapeutic intervention, which can be used along or in combination with bracing or surgery. The "FITS Method may be used as a separate system for scoliosis correction, as a supportive therapy for bracing, in preparation of children for surgery, or for the correction of the shoulder and pelvic girdles after surgical intervention." (Bialek M, M'hango A. FITS concept - functional individual therapy of scoliosis. Studies in health technology and informatics. 1st SOSORT instructional course lecture book. IOS. 2008; 135:250-61).
