Scoliosis treatment and services
At Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, the multidisciplinary team of physicians who specialize in treating scoliosis and spinal injuries includes orthopedic surgeons, rehabilitation and pain management specialists, physical and occupational therapists (specially trained in manual therapy), psychologists and nurse case managers each offering a range of options and an individualized care plan tailored to the needs of each patient.
After assessing a patient’s back and neck pain, this team will evaluate surgical and nonsurgical solutions for scoliosis treatment, including:
- Manual therapy
- Rehabilitative therapies such as aquatics and traction
- Minimally invasive techniques
- Referral to a pain management program
Educational programs are also part of treatment to help patients maintain a more active lifestyle, minimize the chance of recurrent episodes and prevent future problems.
Our goal is to help relieve your pain so you can get back to your life.
