Helping You Find Relief & Comfort
Scoliosis is a sideways curve in your spine that is often detected in childhood or teenage years. The angle of the curve may vary, but anything more than 10 degrees is considered scoliosis.
If you suspect you have scoliosis, you may lean a little when you stand. Other symptoms include:
- A visible curve in your back
- Uneven shoulders or hips
- Ribs that stick out farther on one side of the body
Untreated scoliosis can lead to significant pain, stiffness, fatigue, and numbness from pinched nerves. It is important you have any signs or symptoms of scoliosis assessed so you can get the treatment you need.
On your first visit, you will be met by our friendly support staff who will help you with filling out forms, answer any questions and help with anything else you need. You will then meet with the practitioner to discuss your specific concerns and health history.
Assessment & Recommendation for Care
Your practitioner will discuss your specific needs, present your options, suggest a treatment plan, and discuss the benefits and any risks associated with the recommended treatment. Treatment plans are specific to each patient.

Q. DO I NEED A DOCTOR'S REFERRAL FOR SCOLIOSIS TREATMENT?
Scoliosis treatment is provided either by our Chiropractors or Physiotherapists. They are primary healthcare providers just like MDs and so you do not require a doctor's referral. However, some insurance plans may require a referral.
Q. CAN I EXERCISE DURING SCOLIOSIS TREATMENT?
Staying active is important to your overall health, so please continue to exercise as you would regularly. Your doctor may advise you against any specific exercises that may hinder treatment.
Q. HOW LONG WILL I NEED TO WEAR A BRACE FOR?
If your scoliosis treatment involves a brace, your doctor will discuss the length of time you will likely need to wear it for. It depends solely on your condition and diagnosis.
