June is Scoliosis Awareness Month!

by Rosemary Marchese, Schroth Scoliosis Physiotherapist 

June is Scoliosis Awareness Month! This month we are going to show you a little more about the work we do in the world of scoliosis. Schroth and SEAS (Scientific Exercise Approach to Scoliosis) physiotherapy are both used in our clinic. We develop a program specific to the individual. The goals of treatment include: improve aesthetics, stabilise and sometimes improve the curve, reduce pain and improve posture. 

Here is just one example of an adult living with scoliosis. Jas, is 20 years old and was diagnosed at age 11 with Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis. She started to develop some pain. This was her posture and her EOS (3D scan of her back) when I first met her.

This is her scoliosis spine causing her deviated posture.

Posture and Pain

In many instances scoliosis specific physiotherapy (Physiotherapeutic Scoliosis Specific Exercises – PSSE) can help improve posture and reduce pain. This is Jas working on stabilising her curve and improving her posture.

How is it going?

Schroth physiotherapy takes commitment from the patient and the physiotherapist. Of course every case is very different but here is a sneak peak on how things are going for Jas.
