  • Induce relaxation
  • Improve tissue repair, extensibility and/or stability
  • Facilitate movement
  • Improve function
  • Provide long lasting relief

Our expert physical therapists can determine if manual therapy is the right fit for your individual needs and goals by performing a thorough evaluation.


Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) is the most common type of Scoliosis and is a condition that impacts the development of the spine in adolescents. It is both a structural and functional change, and physical therapists play an important role in managing it effectively!

Modern Physical Therapy Scoliosis treatment is built on practices that have been working for over 100 years, such as those introduced by Schroth, Rigo, and other methods.

Physical Therapy for Scoliosis is…

  • Individualized – We examine many elements of the patient such as their curve, posture, diagnostic imaging, strength and mobility to make treatment plans that are specific to each patient’s needs and presentation.
  • Focused – Each patient is unique with different limitations and varied goals and priorities. Our therapists will promote a plan of care that works towards these goals making them the emphasis of our outcomes.
  • Empowering – Scoliosis is a condition that can seem alarming and overwhelming. Our therapy approach helps to empower patients and families with the knowledge and the confidence needed to achieve success and the tools to self-manage this condition.
  • Collaborative – Our therapists work side-by-side with other specialists including orthopedic surgeons and orthotists to ensure that each patient case and concerns are being addressed thoroughly and effectively.

Benefits of Physical Therapy for Scoliosis:

  • Improved postural control
  • Reduce pain and discomfort
  • Better strength and endurance
  • Reduce curve progression

While Scoliosis can be identified in children at a much earlier age, the best time to pursue physical therapy treatment is during adolescence when bone growth and maturity is happening most rapid. Changes made at this time have the best chance of being effective over the long-term.
