The HSS Spine Therapy Center at 75th Street provides specialized care for spine patients. Lower back pain affects nearly 85% of people at one time or another. In an active society, many people injure themselves simply doing basic, everyday activities. Whatever the cause of your lower back discomfort, we’re here to get you back on track.
Our therapists are educated in a variety of manual and therapeutic exercise techniques. Therapeutic exercise describes a variety of physical activities intended to help restore and maintain strength, flexibility, endurance and balance, including the Schroth Method and Pilates. We work directly with your physician to individually tailor a program to suit your spine care needs.
Our Spine Therapy Center was designed to promote wellness, and features a variety of Pilates apparatus and Schroth Method equipment.
Spine Therapy Services:
The HSS Scoliosis Physical Therapy is a part of the HSS Scoliosis Service.
Our therapists teach the research based Schroth Method; not only teaching the exercise fundamentals of the method, but also teaching anatomy and medical terminology.
The patients and their families are empowered with a working knowledge to maximize appropriate Scoliosis interventions.
What do I need to make an appointment for Schroth Therapy?
- An MD prescription stating Schroth Physical Therapy
- A scoliosis X-ray series from your skull to pelvis. A normal back x-ray is not sufficient as it only captures one portion of the spine and we need to ensure there is not an compensatory curve in other areas of your spine.
