Scoliosis Care at Spiral Spine
Scoliosis care at Spiral Spine is highly individualized because we know every scoli body is different. However, every client begins their journey by:
- Purchasing an individual lesson or package. Most clients start with the Scoli Care Package (it's the best way to quickly gain an understanding of your scoli).
- Research our staff and schedule your first lesson.
- Filling out the intake form we send you.
We can't wait to meet you and help you figure out how to live with your unique, scoli body!
Need help? Please contact the client care coordinator.
Can you discuss bracing, surgery, or other scoliosis topics with me?
Yes! Back bracing, surgery, and nutrition are among the topics we get A LOT of questions about. Erin Myers and the Spiral Spine staff spent many years reading research and working with clients to create the book I Have Scoliosis; Now What? We suggest you get the book to learn more. If you want to speak further about these topics, please book a private lesson - you can leave a note telling us just what you wish to discuss.
How will working with Spiral Spine help?
While we work to meet each client's goals, we hope to help everyone achieve the following within their first few lessons:
- Understand your curves he direction and number of your curves
- Know if you need pads and where to place them
- Decrease pain, if present
- Help halt curves that are progressing
What happens after my first private lesson?
Ultimately, that is up to you. We are committed to walking alongside you throughout your entire journey and do our best to tailor a program to your goals and needs.
Your teacher will always recommend a plan of care. Realistically, most clients need 3-10 private lessons before they have the knowledge to care for their scoli on their own long-term. We specifically created the Scoli Care Package to help you achieve this.

Which instructor should I work with?
How many private lessons will I need to take?
Scoli care is very individualized and looks different for each person. In addition, your goals will also impact this. Please scroll up and look at the scoli care plans from real clients of ours to get a broad idea of what your plan could look like.
What will my first private lessons look like?
People come to us for a lot of varied reasons, especially among those who have scoliosis. So there is no one way your first few lessons will look. Sometimes people want to talk and ask us questions and sometimes they want a Pilates lesson. There is no wrong way to start your journey with Spiral Spine. However, if you want your lesson to look a certain way, please let us know, and we will do our absolute best to accommodate you. The more you tell us about your desires, the better we are able to help you.
