Scoliosis Physical Therapy
Scoliosis Physical Therapy
Hands-On Care. Long-term, Effective Scoliosis Pain Relief.
When I first came into Therapydia I could barely move but with the help of Sabrina I was able to get my mobility back. Her attention and ability to assess my injuries was amazing. The exercises she assigned me have made a massive difference in my daily life. I am so thankful to have found Therapydia and to finally be out of pain!
Therapydia is awesome. My therapist is Emily and I could ask for none better! I started with severe back pain. With her help and guidance and patience I am now pain free. Thank you Emily! She also gave me an exercise program I can do at home to continue to improve on my own. During my visits I have interacted with all of the staff. They are a kind and caring group. I highly recommend Therapydia.
Sabrina was my physical therapist. I was seeing her for a back injury that I got at my job. Everyday she would assess my back to see how flexible it was. I never felt like she rushed things and always felt a little better after each visit. She was always very friendly, encouraging and uplifting. Thanks to her I was able to go back to work full time and be able to rough house with my daughter again.
What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis affects the spine by changing its alignment and most often occurs just before puberty. Minor scoliosis cases just require a brace while more serious cases may require spinal fusion surgery. Brace has been the go-to treatment for adolescents to stop curve progression. However, curves can grow throughout adulthood leading to pinched nerves, herniated disc, reduced mobility, back pain and reduced lung capacity.
Signs & Symptoms

- Uneven shoulders
- Uneven hips
- Uneven waist

- Difficulty breathing
- Back across lower back
