What to Expect in a Group Session

In our group sessions, you will practice your individualized Schroth Best Practice (SBP) exercise program under the supervision of a trained physiotherapist. These sessions offer an immersive experience where you can refine your exercises, receive feedback, and adjust your program as needed. The group setting encourages a more dynamic and engaging workout.

Ideal Candidates for Group Sessions

Our group sessions are ideal for individuals with idiopathic scoliosis, whether they are currently using a brace, have completed their bracing, or are not using a brace at all. To participate, clients must complete an individualized scoliosis assessment with one of our physiotherapists and review their SBP exercise program.

Understanding Idiopathic Scoliosis

Idiopathic scoliosis is a condition characterized by an unusual curvature of the spine, usually diagnosed in children and adolescents. The term “idiopathic” means that the cause of the scoliosis is unknown. It is the most common type of scoliosis and can vary in severity. Early detection and treatment are crucial to managing the progression of the curve and maintaining a healthy spine. Our group sessions are specifically designed to support individuals with idiopathic scoliosis through targeted exercises and personalized care.

Joining a Group Session

To be eligible for group sessions, clients need to undergo a thorough assessment and have their SBP program assigned. Our pre-screening assessment includes a review of your medical history, a physical exam, and an analysis of your x-rays.
