scoliosis – kyphosis – spinal deformities

Spinal deformities, such as Scoliosis and Kyphosis can affect both children and adults. We provide non-surgical (conservative) treatment option for scoliosis, kyphosis and other spinal deformities. We are trained in the various Physiotherapeutic Scoliosis Specific Exercises (PSSE), such as the Schroth Method from Barcelona School of Physical Therapy for Scoliosis (BSPTS), the SEAS Method (Scientific Exercise Approach to Scoliosis) from the ISICO Institute, and the Lyon Method from France. While each school of training provides a different technique implementation, the requirements of PSSE globally are: Auto-correction in 3D, Training in Activities of Daily Living, Stabilization in Corrected Position, and Education to the patients.

Our Signature PSSE program is offered in 3 phases. We develop a comprehensive regimen that is individualized for you and guide you throughout the phases.
