Postural Asymmetries and Other Issues

Postural issues affect many people. Based on a person’s age, physical history, activity levels, and daily routines, posture may vary and change over time. This may result in pain, discomfort, and/or esthetic changes.

Treatment using the Schroth principles may be effective for addressing postural issues. Combined with other approaches and techniques, Physiotherapists and Registered Massage Therapists at The ScoliClinic can support you to maintain and improve your posture.

Your ScoliClinic therapist may use hand-on techniques and modalities such as soft tissue massage, joint mobilizations, or acupuncture/dry needling.

In addition, they’ll perform a movement assessment and provide postural education, activity modification, and strengthening/stretching programs to help you address your concerns.

Before your appointment

Please note our cancellation policy: For regular appointments, we require 48 hours notice for any cancellations or changes to your appointment.

For non-resident intensive treatment blocks, please ask our staff about the booking & cancellation policies.

To maximize your session, please bring:

  • X-ray images if available – we may be able to request images on your behalf for a fee, however some facilities require that you request and pay for them yourself
  • Any relevant reports
  • Moveable clothing (sports bra / tank top, shorts or leggings). Plain, fitted, light-coloured clothing is preferred

Please note: Although we may bill directly to extended medical providers, any balances must be paid at the end of each visit via VISA, MasterCard, or debit. We do not accept AMEX.
