Scoliosis Management in Longmont, CO
Scoliosis is a condition that occurs when there is an abnormal curvature of the spine. Left untreated, this can cause a number of problems through the years, including pain and imbalanced muscles, and may even cause permanent disfigurement and damage to the internal organs.
The health professionals at Longmont Spine & Physical Medicine offer a number of services to assist patients with scoliosis management. While some cases of scoliosis are relatively minor, everyone affected by this condition of the spine can benefit from personalized treatment options.

The ScoliBrace® Advantage
- Can reduce pain and improve posture and spinal deformity patterns
- Can improve cosmetics by reducing rib humping, leveling shoulders, and achieving a more symmetrical waist
- Can reduce scoliosis curves in infantile, juvenile & AIS cases. It may also reduce curves in certain adult cases and improve posture and coronal and sagittal balance.
Bracing for adults can:
- Improve chronic pain and disability
- Slow or stop worsening of curves and poor posture
- Improve daily activities, function and quality of life
Unlike most braces on the market, a ScoliBrace is an over corrective brace. It works by guiding the body and spine into a posture that is the opposite of how the scoliosis is shaped. Curve reduction may be achieved in the majority of cases while improving the overall appearance of the body.
Our scoliosis management generally consists of a blend of treatments and therapies, which can include:
- custom-made back braces
- physical therapy
- chiropractic adjustments
- at-home exercise plans
To determine the plan that is right for you, our doctor will first perform a physical exam to evaluate your spine and run diagnostic testing, if necessary. To ensure that you continue to receive benefits—even when you aren’t in our office—our doctor will also devise a scoliosis management plan that can be worked on at home.
