Our treatment approach: In adolescents our primary goal of treatment is prevention of curve progression.  We work together with you and your medical scoliosis team to optimize results.  Our approach uses a combination of core conditioning exercises and Schroth/Scoliologic approaches to curve management.   https://schrothbestpractice.com/north-america/

Bracing: We provide exercises to assist in preventing the need for bracing, as well as providing exercises to improve the results of bracing. Bracing is known to be more effective when combined with exercise.

Pain control and prevention: Although pain is less frequent in adolescents, we provide direct treatment if pain is a key concern. Treatment may include a combination of manual therapy, modalities and/or exercises. Our approach is to teach you how to relieve and prevent pain.

Surgical rehabilitation: 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 from our scoliosis approach? Anyone over the age of 10 with a diagnosis of scoliosis, with or without bracing.  Anyone who has had scoliosis surgery and lacks function, strength or is having ongoing pain.
