Physical Therapy Comprehensive Evaluation for patients diagnosed with scoliosis
The initial consultation comprises:
- Visual Inspection: observation of curve(s), shoulders, hips, head, pelvis, knees, ankles, feet-from front, back and sides.
- Range of motion
- Neurological exam
- Scoliometer measurement
- Breathing assessment
- Hyperlaxity assessment
- Muscle strength
- Gait analysis
Physical Therapy Treatment for scoliosis patients (adolescents and adults)
Treatment plans are individualized after completion of initial consultation.
Patients typically come 1-2 times per week until they are ready to be more independent.
We make attempts to accommodate individual schedules for both adolescents and adults.
