Scoliosis clients take steps to improve their posture, core strength, and breathing with the help of MAT Therapy.
A better life is waiting for you with the help of Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy (MAT). In our program, scoliosis clients take steps to improve their posture, core strength, and breathing with the help of MAT. SHIFT Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy is a non-invasive, gentle, muscle and bone manipulation along with exercises that can reduce the effects of scoliosis and postural issues. Our MAT posture programs are less intense than chiropractic adjustments, relying on manual manipulation and movement therapy.
A Scoliosis Therapist Cares for Your Spine and Its Unique Needs
How does Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy work with scoliosis? It combines gentle, muscle and bone manipulation to correct and minimize harm to your joints as you age. Besides the correction of the curve, outcomes of a SHIFT MAT program may include:
- Improved posture
- Improved core stability and strength
- Easier breathing
- Less pain
- Improved overall movement pattern and function
- Improved self-management and understanding of the spine
- Better pelvis alignment
Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy: Reduce Progression of Scoliosis
The main goal of SHIFT Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy is to prevent scoliosis from advancing and improve movement, reducing wear and tear in joints. We work together with your body, movement and breathing in addition to your lifestyle outside of the SHIFT.
Results depend on your age, bone maturity and the degree of curvature. Managing scoliosis with MAT is an option for patients who want to avoid surgery. Some exercises are done on the massage table, with Schroth bars for fine-tuning movements of specific areas. Every movement in your treatment plan is customized to your needs and curvature. The length and frequency of treatment largely depends on the age, tolerance, and extent of scoliosis as well as your goals and compliance with home exercises.
At Shift Fitness & Massage we offer client centered advanced therapies to empower everyone to be pain free, move better, stand taller through
Alignment, Posture rehabilitation & Posture Re-education. No pills, needles or surgery.
Most scoliosis clients see visible improvement in the degree of their spine curvature after a single 90-minute session. While the length of the treatment plans do vary, individuals typically schedule 5 to 20 sessions total.
