Dr. Lisa Carisio of Carisio Chiropractic Institute came to school yesterday to provide scoliosis screenings for 5th through 8th graders. The screenings included a simple forward-bending test in which the child bends forward from the waist, arms hanging loosely, and palms touching and the examiner looks for unevenness in the child's back or ribs. A scoliometer can be used to measure and estimate the rotation of the spinal column. Thanks very much to Dr. Carisio for donating her time and expertise in providing this valuable service to our students!
