We use several therapies in the treatment of Scoliosis. Each therapy is used for specific therapeutic goals.
- Intersegmental traction is very beneficial to increase intersegmental mobility by freeing up the spinal joints and restrictions.

- Electrical muscle stimulation is a mild form of electrical current used to decrease pain and decrease muscle tension. The mild current acts as a nerve block reducing pain and also fatigues the muscles reducing muscle tension.
