Motion Physical Therapy is now offering conservative management of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis in The Woodlands. Scoliosis is a three-dimensional spinal deformity that requires a specialized approach to address the unique curve pattern of each patient. Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is the most common type of scoliosis. It has no definitive cause, but usually occurs in children after the age of ten.
At Motion Physical Therapy we offer a proactive approach based upon the Schroth Method. A conservative management of scoliosis, the Schroth Method began in Germany in the 1920s. This method was developed by Katharina Schroth and focuses on strengthening and stretching exercises to de-rotate and elongate the back into a more normal posture. Further developed by her daughter, physical therapist Christa Lehnert-Schroth, it has become the standard, non-surgical approach to treating scoliosis in Germany.
Our physical therapist is certified in 3-D scoliosis treatment based upon Schroth principles. He will provide a thorough assessment and develop an individualized treatment plan based upon your unique curve pattern. Our program will utilize specific stretching and strengthening exercises and, if necessary, specialized bracing to influence your child’s condition in a positive manner. Our goals of care for adolescents with scoliosis are to:
- Decrease postural imbalance
