Registered Massage Therapy for Scoliosis

The ScoliClinic offers Registered Massage Therapy (RMT) for our clients who have scoliosis or other spinal conditions. As people with scoliosis often experience fascial restrictions, muscular tension, and stiff joints, manual treatment from a Registered Massage Therapist can decrease fascial resistance, to assist clients to achieve their postural corrections with less effort. 

Our RMTs have collaborated with our Schroth-certified Physiotherapists to provide curve-specific massage treatments. Each client’s X-Ray images and clinical notes from the Physiotherapist are taken into account when planning the massage sessions to address any muscular imbalances in the trunk, shoulders, pelvis, or beyond.

At the end of each massage session, clients complete Schroth exercises, core activations, or other strengthening exercises to set the musculature in their newfound lengths.

VANCOUVER
Monday to Saturdays, times vary depending on day

Initial assessments are 75 minutes, and follow-up visits are 60 minutes.

Please call us and select your preferred location for more information or to book a treatment.

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
    (Depending on the facility, we may be able to request them directly. Some facilities require that you pick up your images, and may charge a fee. We can discuss options during the booking of your initial appointment)
  • Any relevant reports
  • Sports bra / tank top, shorts or leggings

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