Conservative Management of Scoliosis

based on the Schroth and SEAS method

At Columbia Doctors, I work with an interdisciplinary team consisting of orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists, pain management MDs, nurse practitioners, an orthotist that specializes in bracing systems, and myself, the scoliosis physical therapist. I incorporate scoliosis specific exercises based from the Schroth method from the Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School, the SEAS method with conventional physical therapy to devise an individualized treatment plan for each  of my patients that match their lifestyles to help them achieve their personal goals.

Below are two case studies, highlighting my work with an adolescent with AIS (adolescent idiopathic scoliosis) and an older adult who has had scoliosis since childhood.
