About Rita

YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

Rita Miller opened ScoliSpine (Previously Direct Physical Therapy Boise) in 2018. She’s been a licensed Physical Therapist for over 20 years and has practiced in several locations in both the New York City and Kansas City Metro areas. Her experience lead her to open a practice bringing high-quality personalized care back to our often rushed healthcare system.

Later that year Rita’s 12-year-old daughter was diagnosed with scoliosis. Having lived with scoliosis herself, she was already familiar with the Schroth Method and began looking for a certified Therapist in the Treasure Valley. To her disappointment, there were none located in the entire state of Idaho. Long story short, she decided to pursue the C1 Level Certification for Scoliosis Specific Exercises through the Schroth-Barcelona Institute. To further enhance her practice in March of 2020, she completed her C2 Certification in Scoliosis Specific Exercises allowing her to treat more complicated spinal deformities including pre- and post-surgical adults and children, degenerative scoliosis conditions, and adults at high risk for pain and progression.

Through this certification process Rita has found her mission. Her hope is to give all patients facing spinal deformities a conservative treatment option that was previously unavailable for them here in Idaho.
