Equipment recommendations vary depending on age, curve type, space limitations in the home, etc. Individual recommendations will be made by your therapist to facilitate independent practice of the exercises at home.
Your first appointment will include a review of your x-ray, a full clinical assessment and the initiation of treatment.

Please either mail a CD of your x-ray to the clinic or bring it with you to your first appointment. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to fill out new patient paperwork or email a request for forms to be sent to you in advance.

While the clinic is out of network with other providers, local patients may be eligible for an out of network gap exception as the closest in-network provider is 90 miles from the Bryan College Station area. Patients choosing Advanced Scoliosis Care as their provider of choice are encouraged to contact their insurance providers and / or HR administrators to discuss their individual plan benefits, PPO options, flex spending benefits and out of network coverage. Payment is due at the time of service and can be made by check, cash, Visa, MC, Discover, American Express and flexible spending account cards. The clinic also accepts Care Credit and patients can visit the Care Credit website for more details. Upon request, patients will be given an invoice with all appropriate documentation including diagnostic and treatment codes to submit for reimbursement. The cost of individual treatment is $125.00 per hour or $31.25 per 15 min interval and is provided by an Advanced Certified Schroth Therapist. As treatment progresses, you will be issued an individualized written home program with photos to facilitate your ability to continue the exercises independently.
