How Can QLD Scoliosis Clinics Help?

Beyond the Schroth Method, QLD Scoliosis Clinics offers a broad spectrum of treatments tailored to adult patients, including but not limited to, scoliosis physio, ensuring a holistic approach to managing this condition. Understanding how scoliosis is treated involves recognizing the importance of a multidimensional treatment plan that may incorporate additional therapeutic options to complement physiotherapy, such as specific bracing techniques or, in certain cases, considering surgical interventions for more severe curvatures.

In conclusion, our clinic's commitment to offering specialized, evidence-based scoliosis treatment for adults reflects our holistic approach to care. By leveraging the Schroth Method alongside other targeted treatments, we aim to address the unique needs of each individual, offering hope and improved quality of life to those affected by scoliosis.


We offer in-person group classes led by our physiotherapists for patients with scoliosis and kyphosis. The classes focus on individualised scoliosis specific exercises and postural corrections, while mixing in some strengthening and mobility. It is also a great way to meet others on a similar journey and build a support network.

Before joining our group classes, you will need to see one of our physiotherapists and complete your initial 1:1 sessions.


How many sessions will I need?

The number of sessions required for scoliosis treatment varies significantly depending on individual needs. Our primary objective is to equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge to perform postural autocorrections tailored to your specific spinal curve. These autocorrections are crucial for integrating corrective practices into your everyday activities, especially for those with types of scoliosis. Achieving proficiency in these exercises generally requires 8-10 one-on-one sessions with your physiotherapist. However, the exact number can vary based on several factors:

  • The presence of pain or discomfort which may indicate the severity of the curvature of the spine

  • Your general body awareness and coordination, are essential for adapting to scoliosis physiotherapy

  • Ability to consistently practice prescribed home exercises

  • Your overall fitness level, which can affect your response to the therapy


Efficiency is a key goal for your physiotherapist, so the number of sessions may adjust based on how effectively you respond to the treatment and how your symptoms of scoliosis evolve with therapy.

What happens in the initial assessment?

During the initial assessment, our focus is on understanding your unique story. This comprehensive evaluation allows us to gather detailed information about your back, medical history, exercise habits, lifestyle, and any symptoms of scoliosis you might be experiencing. We aim to understand your motivations for seeking care and address all your inquiries.

We conduct a specialized physical assessment for your back, including scoliosis-specific measurements, posture photography, respiratory function tests, and assessments of your spine's flexibility and strength. This evaluation helps us in diagnosing whether you have lumbar scoliosisthoracic scoliosis, or another form of scoliosis.

Following the assessment, we provide an in-depth explanation of what is scoliosis, the progression of scoliosis of the spine, and evidence-based recommendations for management. If necessary, we'll refer you for further tests or consultations with a specialist. We conclude by outlining a tailored therapy plan that aligns with your personal goals, ensuring a comprehensive approach to your scoliosis management.

Are the sessions covered by private health insurance?

Yes, sessions at our clinic may be covered by your private health insurance if you have Physiotherapy benefits.


Our clinic's therapists are all registered physiotherapists, allowing us to directly bill your insurance provider after your appointment using our HICAPS system. This coverage can significantly reduce out-of-pocket expenses for treatments such as physiotherapy for scoliosis, enhancing accessibility to specialized care.

Are the sessions bulk billed through Medicare?

Currently, our clinic does not offer bulk billing services.


However, we do accept GP care plans, which contribute $58 towards your consultation fee. It's important to note that you cannot combine this Medicare contribution with private health insurance to cover the cost of the same consultation. This policy ensures that while we strive to make scoliosis therapy for adults accessible, we also comply with healthcare funding guidelines.

What should I wear to my appointments?

For effective assessment and treatment of scoliosis physio, it's essential that your physiotherapist has a clear view of your back, shoulders, and pelvis. Proper attire facilitates accurate assessment and guidance during exercises.

  • For males: Comfortable shorts are recommended, and you will be asked to remove your shirt for a thorough examination of your back.

  • For females: A sports bra (where applicable) and leggings or form-fitting shorts are ideal. Long hair should be tied up to ensure an unobstructed view of the back and shoulders.

This recommended attire supports the detailed assessment and treatment of conditions like mild scoliosis, ensuring that your physiotherapist can provide the most accurate and effective cues during your rehabilitation exercises.
