SSOL PATHWAY to CERTIFICATION

        SSOL’s pathway to certification begins with an in-depth academic course that educates students in the fundamentals of scoliosis and spinal conditions.  

         Upon completion of this online course, the pathway continues with two separate six-day in-person workshops, Practical 1 (P1) and Practical 2 (P2), that focus on the practical aspects of assessment and treatment.  

         Physical therapists who complete P1 will be certified as SSOL Schroth Physical Therapists and those who successfully complete the entire pathway will be certified as SSOL Schroth Advanced Physical Therapists.

Any previous certifications to bypass Introductory Course or P1 Course can be submitted for approval.

Testimonials

"Want to tell you again how incredibly helpful the pre-course material is. Very much thought through, great detail, and helpful examples. The flow and organization of how the material builds on itself is great"

This course reminded me to continue practicing new ideas and options. It reminded me to not remain rigid in working with patients. I am excited to apply the new variations and ideas to my patients when I return next week. I would not hesitate to emphatically recommend this course to anyone who was considering or asked me about it.

This was one of the best learning experiences of my career so far. I feel like I have such a good understanding of scoliosis and how to work with people with scoliosis. I would absolutely recommend this course. Hagit has an incredible understanding of scoliosis and is such a powerful teacher.
