Scheuermann’s Kyphosis –
Adults

Adults with Scheuermann’s Kyphosis may benefit from working with a ScoliClinic Physical Therapist to learn Schroth exercises. Although adults are skeletally mature, they may benefit from specific physical therapy exercises to address posture, esthetics, and pain management, as back pain is common in adults with Scheuermann’s Kyphosis.

The ScoliClinic’s physical therapists will review your X-Ray (if available), perform a detailed assessment, and discuss your goals to create a customized home exercise program that is best suited to your needs.

The goals of treatment for adults with Scheuermann’s Kyphosis are:

  1. Treat spine pain symptoms by stabilizing your spine through curve-specific strengthening
  2. Prevent further degeneration of the curve
  3. Increase your education on movements to be cautious of, and appropriate modifications to your daily activities
  4. Improve your respiratory efficiency

Before your appointment

If you have X-Ray images, be sure to let us know as this will help your Physiotherapist design your treatment plan.

If you or your child already have a brace, physiotherapeutic scoliosis-specific exercises (PSSE) are recommended to maintain postural muscle strength, and to retain as much correction as possible when brace wear ends.

A referral to a spine surgeon and/or bracing can be discussed at the initial assessment.

Please bring:

  • X-ray images either digitally or on disc if available
    (we can request them directly from the imaging facility; more info upon booking your initial appointment)
  • Any relevant reports
  • Sports bra / tank top, shorts or leggings

Please note: Payments can be made by VISA, MasterCard, cash, or cheque. We cannot accept AMEX or debit at this time.
