Now I am a physical therapist, a scoliosis specialist to be exact. I have been certified in the Schroth Method, which is a form of exercise that can improve posture in spinal deformities such as scoliosis and has the potential to reverse curvature during growth. I was diagnosed with scoliosis as an adolescent, but it was not enough to merit bracing. The common practice for curves under 20 degrees has traditionally been “wait and see”. I did not have pain and it did not bother me, so life went on. It was not until I began having numbness and tingling in my right leg as an adult that I began to realize how my scoliosis was affecting my posture.
I love what I do now. Mild scoliosis can make a big difference, especially with athletics and even more so as we age. Scoliosis specific exercise would have made a big difference for me had I known about it in the peak of my growth and dancing career. Even now I can enjoy the benefits of my improved posture and hope to share that knowledge with individuals with curves young and old!

I help people with scoliosis and posture issues return to normal life without pain, feel better about their body image, prevent worsening of their curves, and avoid surgery using specialized exercise!
