Orthotist Perspective on PSSE

Purpose: Investigate orthotists perspectives on physiotherapy scoliosis- specific exercises (PSSE) to understand whether orthotists are discussing PSSE with patients as a treatment option to treat idiopathic scoliosis

SurgeryPal

Purpose: Surgery can be a stressful time for teens and their families! SurgeryPal is a research study exploring whether a mobile and web-based program can help teens and their families prepare for and recover from spinal surgery.

What would I have to do? Participants are randomly selected to receive either online skills training or education before and after surgery. Participants will complete brief online surveys several times before and after surgery. Participants will spend between 7 to 11 months in the study.

Do I qualify? This study is currently enrolling teens (ages 12-18) and their families across the country. All study tasks are completed online.
