    Mooney/ McIntire

    McIntire had the home exercise regime. It was seldom used and none of his subjects followed-thru continuously with the exercises. It is probably just as well, the exercises are difficult to perform...

    Thank you Linda. I had checked the web site and couldn't find anything mentioned, but wasn't sure if the site was up to date.

  8. tethering

    Thanks 3sisters! I guess I will have to finally give in and join Facebook.

    Hi Pooka,

    Thanks for sharing! The x-rays look good, it is their reading I am reluctantly questioning. I do trust Newton and have contacted his office requesting they review the x-rays. They...

    I believe that they only included those who followed protocols at a certain level, I do not believe they included everyone who was given these instructions. I do wonder if they also...

    Without some basic detail, this publication appears to be little more than an interesting side note. I had asked basic questions about the idiopathic cases and a few generic questions; none of which...

    a yoga studio would be more knowledgeable than me

    Alistair,

    You need to know if you have a major & compensatory curve OR a double major curve.

    You need to know whether the major curve is left OR right.

    Hi Sam,

    Wow, lots of good advice. I’m not sure how helpful I can be, but I do know a little about PT for scoliosis so I’ll chime in.
