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. https://schrothbestpractice.com/north-america/

Pain: 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.

Surgery: 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.
