An Adult Scoliosis Patient

“Over the last ten years I have completed scoliosis intensives in Spain and Wisconsin with regular follow-up in NYC for the past four years. My exercises have allowed me to manage my pain, but I have still learned to tolerate a low level of pain, along with confusion about some of the exercises. This spring I traveled to Boston for a week-long Schroth clinic. It was the best decision I could have made. Dr. Moramarco, his assistant Amy and the rest of the staff were accommodating and friendly. They did an excellent job reviewing the exercises with me, tailoring the sessions to my individual needs and presenting a pace that was both challenging and manageable. My understanding of scoliosis and the necessary corrections improved dramatically. One issue I have always had with Schroth is that I lack the guidance to really integrate a routine into my daily life. I am very disciplined, and even so, it is hard to implement an exercise regime that consists of “do your best.” Before walking away from Dr. Moramarco’s office, I was given a booklet of exercises with photographs of myself doing the exercises, along with an individualized video of me for reference. I was also given an exercise chart that I can check off daily. For the last month and a half I have been able to continue the work on my own, and I can say with certainty that I have a much more structured routine, and the results are lasting and effective. In Boston I was also fitted for a brace, and that has helped me as well. My back pain is at a minimum and my spirits are high. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Moramarco to anyone suffering from scoliosis. The results will speak for themselves.”
