Scheuermann’s Kyphosis in aging spines
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:
- Treat spine pain symptoms by stabilizing your spine through curve-specific strengthening
- Prevent further degeneration of the curve
- Increase your education on movements to be cautious of, and appropriate modifications to your daily activities
- Improve your respiratory efficiency
