Intensive Treatment Structure

Option 1: If you’re planning to come to the lower mainland regardless, we recommend booking 8-10 hours of combination treatment with a Physiotherapist and Registered Massage Therapist. Depending on the length of your stay, 2-4 hours per day is generally ideal to maintain maximal focus throughout the sessions.

Option 2: If you’d like to minimize your stay in the city, the first 3-4 hours of sessions can successfully be completed via virtual physiotherapy sessions to determine exactly how many hours of in-person treatment you may require. The remaining 4-6 hours would be in-person with your physiotherapist at a time that works for you. Depending on the length of your stay, 2-4 hours per day is generally ideal to maintain maximal focus throughout the sessions.

During this time, you’ll learn:

  • in-depth details about your curve
  • recommendations on day-to-day activities, and sport/hobby modifications
  • Schroth Method corrective positions best suited for you
  • curve-specific muscle activation and breathing techniques in the corrective positions
  • suggested equipment to set up your home exercise area
  • appropriate core and flexibility exercises to suit your needs

You will leave with a resource binder (physical or electronic) full of detailed home exercise photos and descriptions to maximize your efforts at home.

After returning home: Continue your treatment via virtual sessions where available, and plan return trips to Vancouver for re-assessments and treatment progression.
