Massage Therapy for Scoliosis
Were you diagnosed with Scoliosis?
Massage Therapy & Movement Therapy Can Help!
At Optimal Wellness, If you weren’t born with scoliosis it’s likely that this curve is related to your posture or movement patterns. Even if you were born with it, treating the muscles around your spine and improving the control of your spine will drastically improve your condition.
Schedule a Treatment!
For Scoliosis, we recommend scheduling our Optimal Movement Assessment & Optimal Pain Management Massage. Once you are out of pain, we may recommend a mobility training session to teach you a series of exercises you can do on your own.

Scoliosis is diagnosed when a posterior view of the spinal column reveals lateral bends. A scoliosis curve to the right side of center will form a compensating bend back to the left side, and vice versa. Scoliosis usually occurs in the thoracic or lumbar areas of the back. A normal spine has a vertical curve measuring less than 10 degrees. By measuring the curve’s angle using the vertebra at the apex of the curve as a starting point, a scoliotic spine measures curves of 10 degrees in mild cases and up to 90 degrees in the most severe cases.
Massage & Movement Therapy can help prevent or eliminate Tendonitis by
