I am posting this question for my mother in hopes that someone can help me.

My mother has had scoliosis since childhood. However, due to her age she is not a candidate for surgery.

She has been to a number of excellent orthopedists and physiatrists in New York City who have recommended physical therapy. Unfortunately these physical therapists do not have an expertise in treating scoliosis.

She would like to find a experienced massage therapist in either New York City or Brooklyn, New York who is experienced in working with scoliosis patients. Ideally, it would be great if the therapist could come to the house but she is open to other options.

I hope that someone can provide me with some leads. Please e-mail me at: amk9004@yahoo.com with any information,

Thank you.
