Depending on the severity of the scoliosis, either physical therapy, brace treatment or spinal surgery are used.
Physical therapy:

Technical competence in the field of scoliosis is particularly important in physiotherapy.

The type of treatment must be determined individually by the specialist staff due to the variety of different factors. If measures have not already been taken in advance, appropriate physiotherapy must be initiated at the latest during the corset treatment in order to be able to achieve a positive change with the appropriate cooperation.

In the course of a corset treatment, further therapies may become necessary due to the physical and psychological stress. In case of questions or uncertainties, it is advisable to entrust yourself to the team of specialists to find a reasonable solution.

corset treatment:

Scoliosis in the growth age of more than 20° Cobb should be treated with a corset in addition to the Schroth therapy in order to steer the growth. The treatment aims to prevent further deterioration until the end of growth, to correct existing curvatures and to maintain the corrections achieved. The corset therapy is prescribed by the medical specialist and the daily wearing and treatment duration is determined.

Surgical therapy:

In some cases, conservative scoliosis therapy (physiotherapy, brace treatment) is not sufficient. If a scoliosis becomes noticeably worse and the curvature is too pronounced, surgeons usually recommend surgical scoliosis therapy.

The medical specialists select the optimal surgical method. It depends on the angle of curvature, whether it occurs lumbar (in the lumbar area) or thoracic (in the thoracic area), the age and the general physical condition of the patient.
