Today started our adventure at Scoliosis Rehab learning the Schroth Method of Physical therapy. When we first walked in the door, we were overcome by the beauty of the clinic – with its gorgeous wood accents and soft, soothing music. The staff was incredibly friendly and respectful and really set the tone, putting “C” at ease from the first handshake. The session started with a comprehensive evaluation of “C”‘s curve, muscle strengths, and flexibility. I learned a LOT of details about the spine and Scoliosis that I never knew before. We spent about an hour working on the basic exercises then we went back to the hotel to “chill” for a while.
Our second session involved more exercises and we also got to meet Sherri, who is very familiar with working with young kids. After about an hour and 45 minutes, “C” was very tired, but we both learned a lot and were very impressed by our initial impression of the staff and therapy presented to us. More tomorrow…time to stop tapping on keys and keeping the others awake… shhhh… 🙂
