Scoliosis Adults

Physiotherapy treatment is provided for adult, adolescent and post-surgical scoliosis.

Our treatment approach:

The primary reason for treatment in adults with scoliosis is to relieve pain. Postural correction and/or prevention of curve
progression can also be addressed. Our approach uses a combination of manual therapy, modalities, core conditioning exercises and Schroth/Scoliologic
approaches to curve management.


Just because you have scoliosis, does not mean that you have to have back pain. Our assessment helps to determine the source of the pain. Treatment may include a combination of manual therapy, modalities and/or exercises to help relieve and prevent pain reoccurring in the future.

Prevention of Curve Progression:

In adults most curves will not progress unless the curve is over 35–50 degrees. Scoliologic/Schroth exercises can be used in adults to help with curve management.


We provide exercises to assist in limiting the need for surgery as well as working with you to prepare and recover from surgery.

Who will benefit?

Adults with a diagnosis of scoliosis who would like to develop a scoliosis specific exercise program. Anyone who has had scoliosis surgery or is having back or neck pain.
