For people with scoliosis, physical therapy helps improve communication between the brain and muscles. The correct scoliosis exercises can retrain the brain to correct the body's posture and help bring the spine back into alignment.
Physical Therapists can provide care during any of the phases of scoliosis treatment, including bracing or post-surgery. We will evaluate and assess the posture and movement patterns of the whole body, noting any limitations caused by changes in the spine, and address other symptoms, such as pain and muscle imbalances. We know that exercise for scoliosis that specifically target the unilateral rotation dysfunction are most effective and will develop a customized plan tailored to the type and severity of the scoliosis as well as your goals.
