Scoliosis Therapy For Adults and Teens

With a curve of less than 45 degrees.

At-Home Scoliosis Therapy

Scoliosis Conditioning is a doctor-and therapist-approved scoliosis therapy designed to do at home. These programs will provide you with a foundational practice that you can take with you for the rest of your life.

How It Works

# 1

Know Your Curve

Scoliosis therapy must be specific to the individual. That’s why we have tailored our scoliosis therapy plans around your specific curve pattern. We have carefully designed four sequences based on the most common curve patterns: Levo lumbar (lower left), dextro thoracic (upper right), thoracolumbar dextroscoliosis (C curve to the right), and Levo lumbar/dextro thoracic (S Curve). This is why it is imperative to understand your curve pattern before choosing a program.

Unsure of exactly what curve pattern you have? Please refer to our FAQ section for more information on how to be sure.

Don’t Know Your Curve Pattern?

1

Request an X-Ray

2

Consult a radiologist

3

Request to know your Cobb Angle

4

Be sure to double/triple check the results of your X-Ray with your doctor

Scoliosis Conditioning programs are recommended for individuals with curves in the range of 15-45 degrees. If your Cobb Angle is 45 degrees or higher, please consult your doctor for advice.

# 2

Select Your Scoliosis Conditioning Program

Scoliosis Conditioning programs are designed for 4 curve patterns:

Scoliosis Conditioning programs are not suitable for variations of these curve patterns. If you have a curve pattern on the opposite side (i.e., right lumbar instead of left lumbar), please contact me to discuss options.

If you have undergone spinal fusion surgery, please consult your doctor before attempting these exercises.

# 3

Practice At Home

Scoliosis Conditioning programs are designed to be done at home. How often you practice at home depends on the degree of your curve. The more severe the curve, the more often you should do the poses per week.

Curve Range of 15-25 Degrees
We recommend 1-2 times per week.

Curve Range of 25-35 Degrees
We recommend 2-3 times per week.

Curve Range of 35-45 Degrees
We recommend 3-4 times per week.

Please consult your doctor or physical therapist for advice.

# 4

Check In Periodically With A Scoliosis Therapist

Although these scoliosis treatments for adults and young adults are suitable for practicing at home, it is recommended that you work with a trained scoliosis therapist to make sure you are doing the exercises correctly. A scoliosis therapist can also add to your treatment protocols.

We recommend checking in once every 1-3 months.

# 5

Check in yearly with your Doctor

Whether it’s getting another x-ray image or having a specialist examine your spine, you’ll want to see how you are progressing. These programs are designed to help manage curve progression, ease pain, and build strength and resilience. Reversing curve progression will depend on age, the degree of the curve, and whether you have any other spinal conditions that may interfere with your progress.

You are an excellent instructor and have deep knowledge of the content.

You have provided so many exercises that I have benefited from. I plan to continue with them as I can truly feel a huge difference. Thank you for all of these videos and fantastic exercises.

Gabriella…I wanted to thank you once again and tell you how much you have helped me to achieve some of my goals.

It really has been a pleasure working with you and that comes from someone who generally views structured exercise as a burden. You are a wonderful teacher and time spent with you finds me fully engaged. I’m SO happy I signed on with you.

Meet Gabriella

I am a certified yoga therapist who spent years working alongside doctors, helping to treat their patients with various spinal conditions. With every client I see I do a thorough intake and assessment, read all relevant doctor reports, and speak with their doctors if necessary. I am a firm believer in the collaborative nature of healthcare in order to provide the best outcomes for the patient.
