Does anybody do physical therapy? I started going 2 weeks ago, and I really like it because it's really making me stronger. Will it help my scoliosis too? :)

Good for you, I'm glad physiotherapy is helping in general.

Whether PT will help for scoliosis in particular depends on the knowledge and skill of your physiotherapist, and the degree to which you perform the exercises on your own.

Be sure that your physio knows about the Schroth method. He or she can get the basic background at the website of the longtime Schroth clinic director:

Oh, that's great! Thank you so much - I will definitely talk to my therapist about it! :)
