Does Physical Therapy (PT) Help Scoliosis?
When someone has scoliosis, the body has a pattern that is affected by the spinal rotation which is driving the curve. The spine is going to be a little more limited in some areas than others. Even though scoliosis is driven by a spinal rotation, the human body moves because of the muscles surrounding the joints. If left unaddressed, the curve pattern will tend to make certain muscles over work, and other muscles at a disadvantage. Therefore, scoliosis PT plays such an important role in helping scoliosis.
