A recent study has shown that specialized physical therapy exercises can improve the curve of the spine, muscle endurance, and quality of life. Fourteen-year old Ava is a Schroth Method patient at Physical Therapy & Beyond. She had to wear a brace for her scoliosis since she was 11. For Ava, the Schroth Scoliosis-specific exercises have meant less pain, more confidence, and more control over her own body.
“I don’t have to look like I’m crooked for the rest of my life. I now have control over my own body,” she said. “While my brace is very important, the exercises have helped me change my outlook on my condition…I have gained strength and hold myself up with my own muscles…I don’t have to feel that kind of pain for the rest of my life.”
Ava’s results are tangible and make the Schroth Scoliosis Certified Therapists at Physical Therapy & Beyond very proud. If you or someone you know suffers from Scoliosis you MUST read the full article: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/315495.php
