Scoliosis Physiotherapy Treatment
Scoliosisis characterized by a lateral curvature of the spine. From behind, a normal spine sits in a straight line. A scoliotic spine will have one or more curves to either side, and the degree of curvature will vary depending on the person. Lateral spinal curvatures that exceed 10 degrees are considered as scoliotic. A spine can have one single curve similar to a “C” shape or multiple curves that result in a spine that resembles an “S.” But structural and functional scoliosis cases do have identifiable causes that can direct treatment plans. Scoliosis treatment can be improved through the use of physiotherapy treatments that target muscle imbalances and other factors contributing to excessive spinal curvatures.
