Pilates and the Spine

View Comments (7)Print ArticleEmail Article

Susan King, PT, CBT, of East Cooper Medical Center in Mt. Pleasant, SC, specializes in the rehabilitation applications of Pilates for the treatment of physical dysfunction, posture abnormalities and pain.

King works with adolescent scoliosis patients whose spines are easily adaptable to change. She has begun to incorporate the approach of Katharina Schroth, a German therapist who pioneered scoliosis rehab more than 90 years ago, with her scoliosis patients. King believes that a hybrid approach that combines Schroth's systematic approach of spine correction together with Pilates-based de-rotational exercises provides greater options for scoliosis reduction and management.

She finds that her teen patients love working out on the Reformer, Trapeze and Pilates Chair and tend to be more compliant than with bracing and other approaches. Please click through a few photos that demonstrate the use of Pilates in King's outpatient clinic. For more, read "Structural Correction" in the April 3 issue of ADVANCE.

I have double scoliosis. I've had lumbar decompression surgery almost a year ago - It has left me with daily pain and weakness but I'm determined to improve my posture and strength. I'm looking for a Schroth therapist in San Francisco.
