“Rita and the staff are fantastic . My daughter has been going to physical therapy for a couple of months now. The positive encouragement and feedback help her to keep going. We have noticed great progress.”
Jennifer T.

“Rita has been wonderful in our beginning journey of our daughter’s scoliosis. She’s shared thoughts, answered questions honestly in regards to my own study as a mom, shared personal experiences and is great with our 10 yr old daughter. And provided direction and modifications for the exercises she doesn’t like. Our journey is going to be long and challenging and so glad we found Rita and ScoliSpine to help! Our daughter’s pain has decreased and she continues to work on her exercises! Rita is great in helping with motivation!”
Savannah K.

“My daughter was diagnosed at age 11 with scoliosis and was mid 50’s on both her thoracic and lumbar. She had a fusion t2-t12 and a vbt t12-l3 in mid November. We have been working with Rita for 3 months now and it has helped my daughter regain her core and back strength and reduce her pain. This has been very helpful in her overall recovery.”
Rachel R.

“I have been working with Kennedy the past few months. She has been so kind, knowledgeable, and helpful!”
Krystal K.

“My 9-year-old was diagnosed with scoliosis last fall. I was excited when I learned that Scolispine existed here in Boise and we have had a great experience! Rita and the admin staff are always organized and communicate well for appointments and insurance concerns. Our therapist, Kennedy, has been excellent. She has always been so kind and understanding, professional, she works great with kids, she is knowledgeable and answers all our questions. We’ve never had issues with having to wait for our turn and my daughter even looks forward to her appointments. We recently did an evaluation comparing the before and after measurements of her spine and in the 4 months we have been coming here, things are moving in the right direction and her posture is improving! I would definitely recommend Scolispine to anyone who has been diagnosed with scoliosis. They are passionate about helping their patients and they do it extremely well.”
Mary I.

“Scoli spine has been amazing for my daughters back pain and posture. This is the first time she has experienced pain relief that lasts from PT. So extremely grateful we found them because it was so hard to see my daughter in pain, and nothing seemed to help until now. Thanks Kennedy!”
Stephanie P.

“From the very first day of treatment I could feel this therapy working. I highly recommend Scolispine and their Team!”
Tracy C.

“Kennedy is so good with kids! My daughter has been working with her this year with her scoliosis. She is so kind and patient with her and explains things so well for her to understand. I highly recommend her for treatments.”
Ashley H.

“Knowledgeable, well-trained instructors at ScoliSpine. Helpful exercises to manage pain and discomfort caused by the scoliosis. Highly recommend this place.”
Carol Z.

“Rita has been wonderful in our beginning journey of our daughter’s scoliosis.

And provided direction and modifications for the exercises she doesn’t like. Our journey is going to be long and challenging and so glad we found Rita and ScoliSpine to help!”
Savannah K.

“My daughter was diagnosed with scoliosis a few years ago. We went to Rita to help her manage the pain with schroth exercises and dry needling for her headaches while she finished growing. Her Dr. determined she would not benefit from a brace and unfortunately the curve got worse. After she stopped growing she had surgery in June, and we came back to Rita for dry needling, cupping, scraping and exercises she could do in PE class. My husband, my daughter and I all love Rita. She is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and listens to our concerns. My daughter is doing great and we have learned so much because of Rita ♥”
Michelle C.

“ScoliSpine has done an amzing job helping my daughter with her Scoliosis diagnosis. Morgan has given her the tools and knowledge to help relieve any back pain she was having and improve her posture. She has been flexible and easy to work with. She is so kind and we love her!”
Maureen L.

“I have battled with terrible pain from my scoliosis for several years. Boise’s new Scoliosis Neuro Surgeon referred me to ScoliSpine. Best diagnosis I have ever received!! You have changed my quality of life and I thank you for that!! I wish I knew about you sooner!! They definitely know what they are doing..and doing it right!”

“I am so blessed to find Rita Miller and ScoliSpine. I’ve suffered with deformative scoliosis since I was 12. As I’ve aged, my curve has become much worse and beyond realistic surgical help. When I was referred by a scoliosis surgeon to ScoliSpine, I didn’t know what to expect. But from the first day, I knew that I had found a type of therapy like nothing I had ever tried before as it’s designed exclusively for scoliosis.

“Rita is great. She helped me to relieve some of my back pain. I can now make it through most days with minimal pain. Which is far better than it was before. It is so nice to know I have somewhere to go to help me with my crooked spine.”
Debi L.

“I have low grade scoliosis and have been working with ScoliSpine for several months now after several years of seeking help from other providers. Rita’s approach is working for me! Her training is effective, clear, and she videos the exercises on MY phone for my future reference. I’m out hiking in comfort this summer and greatly appreciate the role ScolioSpine has played in this!”
Stuart F.

“I am forever grateful that I was referred to Rita at Scolispine. Before working with Rita I had long believed that there was nothing I could do to support my scoliosis and prevent it from worsening as I age. I have lived in fear of pain and missing out on my favorite activities later in life. Rita has changed all of that. To be clear, Rita has no magic wand. She is very candid that the work requires a tremendous amount of commitment and discipline. I want to live a long, active and engaged life, and Rita has given me the tools to make it happen.”
Kim G.

“ScoliSpine has been a gift! Rita has given me ways to improve my strength, stamina and attitude about possibilities in life which I did not receive from physical therapists who did not teach the Schroth Method. I am thankful for the recorded videos she made of me in various poses accompanied by her recorded audio. These videos give me instructions which I can always keep to guide me in incremental steps to an improved ability to feel and move better. Thank you, Rita and ScoliSpine!”
Linda G.

“Rita is a life saver. If you or a loved one has scoliosis or back pain we highly recommend Rita at ScoliSpine. She is very knowledgeable, kind and goes above and beyond to help her clients. She pays very close attention to my sons needs. Both my teenage sons see her and feel the benefits from scroth. Thank you Rita you are a blessing to the Treasure Valley!”
Elizabeth R.

“Rita is the best and I highly recommend her. My son was diagnosed with Scheuermanns disease over a year ago. His pain so bad and everything we tried did not help. The back specialists we went to also was not much help either. Rita was out 5th therapists we went to and my son is pain free as long as he does his exercises. Such a miracle and we are forever grateful.”
Cindy W.

“Rita is the best there is for my daughter’s scoliosis. She is professional, thorough, and THE expert physical therapist to see for scoliosis or kyphosis. I spent months researching which therapies were evidenced based before finding out Rita is the only therapist in our area trained in the Schroth method. We are so thankful for her specialized training and expertise. To top it all off she is great with my kid!”
Amber B.

“Rita is the best! So glad I found scolispine.
I had no idea there was a place that specialized in scoliosis.
Thank you so much Rita!”
Melissa W.

“Rita is very professional and work with the patient at it’s own pace. The exercises are simple and there’s definite changes (in my son’s case) within a couple of months. Stood straighter and could see a big difference he grew a few inches just from that. Just aligning your backbone does wonders.”
Elisabeth L.

“Rita is amazing! She really took the time to explain what she knows about scoliosis to my daughter and to us. We felt comforted by her friendly ways and she really was an encouragement to us when it was most needed. My daughter loved going to her and is now able to do the exercises on her own to stabilize her spine . Through working with Rita – our daughters spine only progressed maybe 1 degree total in 6 months and she was not recommended for a brace afterwards. This is lifelong knowledge- skills – and treatment for anyone w scoliosis! Rita is awesome! I wish she would come to canyon county too someday!! :)”
Grace A.

“I came to Rita to rule out any structural issues that could be contributing to my chronic pain. Even with postural kyphosis, the elongation stretches and breathing techniques she taught me helped strengthen and nearly eliminate the rotation in my spine. I also appreciated how she spent significant one-on-one time with me as opposed to the factory-like environment with many other physical therapists.”
Kate N.

“I found Rita when I was looking for a scoliosis specific PT. She is truly a life-saver. She is the only Schroth certified therapist in the Boise area. Her level of expertise in this method is outstanding. The exercises that she has taught me are specific to my curves. I see her every few weeks to make sure I am doing the exercises correctly. Every time I attend a session I learn more and feel better. Since working Rita on strengthening my concavities, I’m able to golf, ski, swim, do Pilates with no pain. Rita is definitely the PT you go to if you want to learn to live comfortably with your scoliosis.”
Jacqueline J.

“Rita has helped me so much with my back pain, I sure wish I could have had her help years ago as the pain was something I lived with for probably more than ten years. . She is very knowledgeable about scoliosis conditions. Her help has given me much relief.
Thanks Rita!”
Kathy M.

“I’m so glad I found Rita. I’ve suffered with chronic pain from scoliosis for so many years, and nothing seemed to help for very long. But after just a few sessions with Rita, and doing the exercises she taught me, I’m already feeling a huge difference. Hip pain is almost gone and I’m sleeping better. It is a commitment to practice these exercises, but the results are so worth it!”
Colleen M.

“Rita has helped almost everyone in our growing family maintain healthy spines. Her professionalism is balanced with kindness and understanding. Her approach is clinical and evidence based, which we greatly appreciate. We trust ScoliSpine100%!”

“Rita Miller was referred to me by my PCP. I had been experiencing extreme pain in my left leg, knee and hip as a result of some mistakes I made in my workout routine. I liked Rita right from the start when we spoke on the phone-she was professional, personable, accommodating and easy to talk to! AND based on our initial phone consultation, she said I would probably just need two appointments, which said a lot to me. No dragging things out-no nickel and dime games here. That established trust immediately. My first appointment exceeded my expectations! She took so much time to diagnose what could be causing my pain-and explained it in terms that made sense to me. We walked through my “homework” and made a follow up appointment to check in after two weeks. Simply said, she was effective, knowledgeable, helpful, personable, efficient, professional and fun to get to know! I HIGHLY recommend Rita Miller and Direct Physical Therapy!“
Sylvia N.

“My daughter sees Rita for her scoliosis and every time we drive away we both say how much we love her! She really cares about seeing her patients improve. And this physical therapy is so different from any other. It is greatly needed to help combat scoliosis. We are thrilled someone told us about Shroth and so thrilled to have Rita here in Boise!!!”
Kate A.

“Rita is absolutely amazing! I’ve suffered for years from migraines, and had in turn been prescribed a cocktail of pills over the years. After two visits with her, and learning a few new excercises, my migraines have substantially decreased. This month I’ve only had ONE migraine, and taken only ONE pill. This is a huge change in my life!!! Rita gave me the ability to fix my pain, instead of covering it with a bandaid. Thank you Rita for being a doctor that seeks REAL solutions. Thank you for teaching me how to get rid of my pain without prescriptions. You gave me my hope back. I cannot convey to you how grateful I am to not be “fear packing” pain meds with me when I leave my home. For the first time in years I’m falling asleep without the fear of waking up with pain. For the first time in years I’m actually sleeping through the entire night without discomfort waking me up. You really did change so much more in my life then you will ever realize. Thank you for being the one, and only doctor to examine my pain and prescribe something beyond a pill! You changed everything. So glad that I walked into your office!!”
Sarah S.

“I suffer from back pain do to long-standing severe scoliosis. The only thing available locally has been surgery until I found Direct Physical Therapy and Schroth scoliosis treatment. As a retired healthcare professional, with significant orthopedic experience, this type of therapy makes perfect sense. Additionally, I have been treated very efficiently and professionally.“
Jim M.

“I have been active all my life. I grew up
on a bicycle, and if the adventure or race was outside it did not matter whether it was on water, snow, ice or dry land! I believe spine curvature or maybe scoliosis could have been mentioned but never really addressed until 2019. After realizing my weakness on one side and misalignment was real and my last hope to get out of pain was to call Rita. I have to use the Schroth breathing technique everyday and life is good again!”
Jodi C.

“I had my first visit with Rita last week regarding chronic low back pain which began as a disc injury years ago. Since then the pain has flared up off and on throughout the years. At the end of my treatment, my lower back felt more stable, and I had a noticeable increase in low back range of motion. I was so impressed with Rita’s knowledge and her attention to detail. Also- she actually LISTENED to me. She used not only what she found during my assessment but also used my feedback to determine which exercises would be best for me. And best part?? No need to travel to an office or wait in traffic. 10/10 I would recommend Direct PT Boise!”
Jillaine S.

“I had been struggling with siatic nerve pain for months. I had tried foam rollers, stretches, chiropractic work, heating, icing and still no relief. I met with Rita and within 24 hours the pain was significantly reduced and within 48 hours the pain was 90% gone! My favorite part? Rita not only taught ME how to manage the pain, but how I needed to treat the source of the pain! These are simple stretching exercises I can do on my own!
Thank you Rita at Direct Physical Therapy!”
Leslie V.

“Rita was my physical therapist for my knee replacement. She was a key player in my recovery. She was pleasant to work with and knowledgeable in all aspects of PT. I am truly glad that I was able to work with her.”
Linda H.

“Best PT in Boise. I’ve had occasion to go to more than 6-8 PT’s since my physical struggles with my back and neuropathy began 2 years ago. Nobody else came close to the intuitive…especially..strongly considered..thinking that Rita showed. Her knowledge base was impressive right off…and she frequented continuing education seminars…even during my months with her! Bottom line, of course, is translating that into communication, and especially, compassion. She exhibits bountiful amounts of both. I couldn’t be more pleased; I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her highly!”
Dave S.

“Rita used a very logical, science-based method to diagnose me and develop a program for help. She has been very responsive and has gone above and beyond to find causes of my pain. I would highly recommend her, even if you’ve tried other physical therapy in the past. She listens to what you’ve done that didn’t work and finds way to attack an issue from another angle.”
Rhonda H.

“Rita is fantastic with my 15 yr old daughter. She is super knowledgeable about scoliosis having been through significant training in the subject. We truly enjoy the time she takes explaining everything in detail and makes the hard things fun as well.”
Kim M.

“I only have been four times, but already I am noticing a big difference. I sought help because my back issues were interferring with my sleep. It is much better, and last night I slept without the big roll of towel to lean against. I am 81 1/2 and have been amazed at the progress I have made in a such a short time.”
Janet B.

“Rita is highly skilled/trained, patient, focused, kind, and funny. My daughter always looked forward to her Schroth appointments and wants to continue with group classes this summer. Rita studied my daughter’s x-rays and doctor notes, and customized exercises for her specific curves. Boise is lucky to have Scolispine!”

“The staff at scolispine are amazing! We have really appreciated their knowledge and help as we navigate this new scoliosis journey. They have answered my questions and listen to me as a mom to what I’m seeing with my daughter and her progress. I really appreciate that. Also, the quick help with our insurance questions has been so nice too! I would recommend going to scolispine.”
Leslie A.

“Thanks to Rita, I have a greater understanding of scoliosis and how it affects my body. She is very skilled in explaining and teaching the Schroth exercises and is always encouraging and motivating. Highly recommend her!!!”
Joanne Y.

“Rita Miller, owner of ScoliSpine, has extensive knowledge about both adult and adolescent scoliosis and how to use the Schroth Method as the method to treat it. At ScoliSpine a personal Schroth Method treatment plan will be created for you after an examination of your spine. I am a very healthy adult with scoliosis. I go to yoga, hike, dance, walk, do pilates and eat well. However, the scoliosis was beginning to cause me back problems. I wanted to improve my scoliosis and stop it from progressing without back surgery of any kind. I found that most medical professionals have little or no knowledge on how to treat an adult with scoliosis. After doing research on my own I discovered the Schroth Method and then I discovered ScoliSpine where the Schroth Method is used with clients. I have found that practicing the Schroth exercises and techniques that Rita put together for me has helped me achieve better posture, reduce my back pain and given me the knowledge I need on how to prevent my scoliosis from progressing. If you are an adult with scoliosis, or have a child or family member with scoliosis, I recommend contacting Rita Miller at ScoliSpine to learn about how using the Schroth Method could improve your health and overall quality of life.”
Cathy T.

“My daughter has just started therapy with Rita at Scolispine, but she’s really enjoying going and learning her new workouts.”
Ricky P.

“I have had lower back pain for 5 yrs. After 2 surgeries and multiple pt’s and chiro’s Rita was able to show me tools to get my back to the best it’s been since I injured it 5 yrs ago. So grateful!!”
Lanae P.

“I have had a superb experience at ScoliSpine. I worked with Rita Miller whom I found to be extremely competent and professional. She has taken me through a very rigorous and extensive treatment program. She is very thorough and complete in her instruction. The program has helped significantly. Highly recommended.”
Robert F.

“Scolispine is incredible. The people are fantastic. Both professional and personal. I appreciate the way they instruct my daughter and help her understand the different techniques of the schroth method. I would highly recommend anyone with scoliosis to come in for a consultation.”
Heather B.

“Rita and Morgan are great to work with. They helped me feel comfortable and explained things multiple ways to help me understand. I’m hopeful that the Shroth method will keep my scoliosis from drastically changing.”
Keely S.

“Our family is so thankful for Rita at ScoliSpine. Everyone should know that this method can change the shape of your body, eliminate pain, and be a possible replacement for surgery. I would give it 11 out of 10.”
Eva K.

“Rita Miller is professional and very knowledgeable. She makes it easy for you to do exercises at home between appointments. I’m already seeing relief in back pain and improvement in posture after only 4 appointments. I highly recommend ScoliSpine for anyone at any age with scoliosis!”
Janet H.

“I am 60 years old and was diagnosed with Scoliosis as an adolescent. Within the last several years I had begun to experience more and more back pain. My doctor said it was not related to the Scoliosis and I took his word for it. Earlier this year, I had an x-ray and found that the curve had gotten much worse. I was referred to ScoliSpine and finally got some answers. Rita explained that the curve worsened during menopause. No doctor had ever even mentioned that as a possibility. I’m grateful to have found them and I’m in the early stages of treatment but I’m hopeful that over time my pain will lessen as I become stronger through the Schroth method.”
Jean R.

“I went to physical therapy for most of my adult life, but after some time, I felt uninspired and needed a change. I felt like my scoliosis limited me. I heard about ScoliSpine through a mutual friend who also has scoliosis. I’m glad I got Rita’s contact info and made an appointment. Rita is very thorough and is very articulate and explains things very well. She also video tapes you and takes notes so you can remember what to do at home. She also does dry needling too! As long as I do my exercises, my headaches and neck pain have improved. I no longer feel limited for the activities I can take part in. Thank you ScoliSpine!❤️”
Ali W.

“I absolutely recommend ScoliSpine to everybody affected by scoliosis. It is the only place in Boise (to my best knowledge) that uses the Schroth Therapy method invented in Germany. Rita, the therapist at ScoliSpine is very thorough and helpful. She explains in detail every exercise, helps a patient to practice and even records a video on patient’s phone explaining the set-up and every little detail about the exercise, so the patient can do it at home correctly. This helped me tremendously. Thank you Rita, thank you ScoliSpine!”
Iveta H.

“Loved it. For the first time in years someone actually explained what was happening to my back. The exercises really helped. I have needed to get back in just been out of town on an off for months. In Mexico for a funeral.”
Angie T.

“Rita is an outstanding physical therapist with an expertise that makes all the difference. She provides a knowledge base and exercises that are acutely specific to scoliosis and to each patient. What she provided was vastly different than we had found with other PT’s. I highly recommend ScolioSpine.”
Erica V.

“I have a very unique curve pattern and my spine has continued to rotate even after correctional surgery. My entire adult life has been a quest to seek relief from pain and Rita has been a total blessing. She is so thorough and knowledgeable when it comes to explaining the entire process. I have seen specialist after specialist and she has been the ONLY person to not only know exactly where my pain is, but she can also explain why it’s there and she understands how to address it. I highly HIGHLY recommend Scolispine.”
Shannon W.

“If you have been diagnosed with Scoliosis (or know someone who has) do yourself a favor and meet with Rita ASAP. I am telling all of my providers, family members, friends, strangers etc about this nonsurgical option for treating Scoliosis. This is giving me the tools to continue to do the outdoor activities I love. While I would have loved to have discovered this before my curve progressed I am deeply grateful to Rita for bringing this to Boise. Her educational style and caring manner have been an absolute game changer for me. Whether newly diagnosed or finding yourself with more symptoms – this will encourage and empower you in living with this condition.”
Jody F.

“I’ve dealt with the effects of scoliosis since adolescence, and have had chronic pain in my lower back and hip for years. So, I was thrilled to find that we finally have a nonsurgical scoliosis specialist here in Boise. Since starting treatment at Scolispine, I’ve felt a huge reduction in pain. I’ve had relief from the deep ach in my hip that has been constant for years. I also feel so much more confident in understanding and proactively managing my condition. Rita is great. She is very personable and attentive. She’s knowledgeable and comunicates well. I’ve learned more about scoliosis in general and about my particular curve from Rita than I have anywhere else before. Her explanations and instructions are clear and her feed back is helpful. Also, she sends me home with videos of me doing each new exercise, so I remember what I’ve learned. She has been wonderful in educating me and empowering me to manage my own scoliosis. Now as I’m nearing the end of treatment, I’m confident in my ability to continue caring for and strengthening my own back. My experience with Rita at Scolispine has been exceptional. Thanks Rita! Definitely call her up for a consult.”
Aimee R.

“My daughter was diagnosed with scoliosis a little over a year ago at age 12. I was a little shocked and apprehensive about which bracing option to choose. The standard go to brace or the new Schroth style. Thankfully my daughter chose Schroth and the Schroth method of physical therapy. Rita at Scolispine has been amazing and the therapy has been working. Rita is genuine, caring and very educated in the Schroth method! I highly recommend both the Schroth brace and the Schroth therapy with Rita.”
Jake P.

“I needed some help reducing pain from scoliosis. Very glad I was referred to Rita who gave me some techniques that have helped. I’ll be back for 2.0.”
Mark B.

“ScoliSpine has been wonderful to me! Rita Miller really try’s to connect with you and truly knows how to help with any form of Scoliosis. I have been struggling for years on finding someone with my back pain after three spinal fusions, being fully fused caused a lot of pain after a few years but she helped me gain muscle and movement in places I’ve been struggling to find. ScoliSpine needs a 10/5 on client care, scheduling, and over all personal growth to her clients:)”
Ellie O.

“I found ScoliSpine when I was looking for other ways to manage the pain from my scoliosis and improve the quality of my life. I feel that we are fortune to have Rita in the Treasure Valley, as she is the only Schroth Certified Therapist specializing in scoliosis specific exercises in Idaho. Since seeing Rita my posture is better and the pain in my back and ribs has decreased! If you or anyone you know has scoliosis, I highly recommend going to ScoliSpine.”
Matt C.

“Top-notch experience with Rita. It’s rare that you find a health professional who exceeds your expectations. Knowledgeable. Dedicated. Personable. If you have concerns about the health of your spine, don’t hesitate to make an appointment with Rita. At 16, I was diagnosed with moderate scoliosis. Medical doctors did nothing and advised nothing, merely recommending that I keep an eye on the curvature. That was 38 years ago. I have suffered chronic pain in my right shoulder/upper spine and tension in my lower back for nearly 4 decades. And now my 12 year old daughter displays a curve too. The medical doctors at St. Luke’s have told us to keep an eye on it and to come back in 6 months for another x-ray. In 40 years, the US medical community has not evolved or embraced any type of preemptive treatment other than prescribing antiquated back braces for kids to wear for years. Don’t hesitate to be proactive and become knowledgeable about your curvature. Go see Rita. Your sessions with her will turn out to be one of the best investments you can make in your long term health.”
Trina C.

“I’ve experienced excellent care at Direct Physical Therapy. Rita Miller is the owner and therapist. Her comprehensive exam and treatment options were thoughtfully designed and significantly reduced my pain and discomfort. Rita is kind and genuinely cares about her clients. Rita also offers dry needling which can help with healing and pain management. If you are dealing with the challenges of scoliosis or kyphosis, I highly recommend Rita Miller at Direct Physical Therapy.”
Corbin W.

“Rita is fantastic with my 14 year old daughter that has scoliosis. She is very knowledgeable about scoliosis and the Schroth method for treating it. Rita takes her time explaining everything in detail and makes my daughter feel comfortable and she makes sure all the exercises are well understood by my daughter. Rita is very professional, kind and knowledgeable. She is also very responsive in accommodating to my daughter’s and our schedule. I highly recommend Rita Miller! Thanks Rita!”
Maria W.

“Rita is fantastic! Calm positive approach. I like that she educates as she’s working.. Appreciate that she communicates multiple ways (phone and text).“
Kristina S.

“Rita is professional, kind, and knowledgable.
The Schroth method for treating scoliosis
was recommended to me by my physical therapist in La Grande, Oregon (Dale Johnson). Rita is a drive away but is helping me to straighten my posture and lessen the resulting pain of the 48 degree curve of my spine. Don’t give up! Rita is realistic and goal
Wendy F.

“Rita is amazing and helped us so much! I was diagnosed 35 years ago with scoliosis. I went to physical therapy and was given exercises. I did them and was told I could stop when I was 17 and quit growing and it had not progressed to me needing a brace. I had some neck tension issues in my early 20’s. By the time 30 rolled around it progressed to neck, mid and lower back issues. I saw another physical therapist. More exercises and massage. Then I started regular chiropractic sessions. Still I had neck and back pain and mobility issues. In my mid forties I always felt like my hips and shoulders were rotating me into a pretzel. A physical therapist with a different specialty area referred me to Rita. Game changing. She introduced me to the Schroth method of treatment which was different than any exercises I had ever done before. She taught me how to breathe into the tight and compressed concave areas of my scoliosis curves and also to use traction and gravity to help de-rotate, stretch shortened muscles, and relieve pain. She also taught postural awareness and things to help every day. I feel better than I have in many years. When I suspected our son also had scoliosis, she helped guide me through x-rays and diagnosis and is now helping him learn the same things I have learned and incorporated into my daily routine. For him, time is critical since we caught it very early and he is growing, so we can keep the curves from progressing further. I wish I had known about the Schroth method and had Rita’s guidance years ago!”
Lauri M.

“Rita was great. Very personable and knowledgeable. She took her time assessing my issues and gave me exercises to work on to help strengthen and stretch where needed. Leaving me with video of myself performing the exercises correctly is a great reminder of the exercises to be performed and the proper way to do them. Coming to me also allows her to show me where the exercises can easily be performed in my own home. If you need a physical therapist, I would highly recommend Rita. She also followed up with me, via text, about a week later to be sure that things were going well. I feel that I could contact her any time with questions or concerns. She cares about helping people get better.”
Becky D

“I love a Rita’s commitment to her patients and the variety of techniques she uses!! She is very knowledgeable, experienced and includes a focus on self directed exercises to help speed the recovery process. So convenient that she comes to you and can take her time with her patients.”
Ari C.

“I recently had the pleasure of a physical therapy session with Rita at my office. She is thorough, knowledgeable, practical, and caring. If you haven’t considered mobile physical therapy, I highly encourage you to do so with Rita. You will love her treatment and her simple, easy to understand instructions for self treatment exercise to do between sessions. She even has a handy mobile app to share with you to guide you through your treatments easy day. Thank you, Rita!”
Barry K.

“Rita is the real deal! If you’re stuck in the machine of the current health care system and want some real results instead, do yourself a favor and call Rita!”
Adrian A.

“Rita is a nice lady and a great therapist. When I had my knee surgery, she pushed me, but in a nice way. She was always looking out for what was best for me, reading my personality, and pushing me a little beyond the point I could handle. She is and was awesome and I got back to work quicker that predicted. Thank you Rita!”glad that I was able to work with her.”
Bruce R.

“It’s a little scary not knowing much about scoliosis and she has taken the time to educate me and with the treatments I am getting, I feel a lot better about the future!!! I strongly recommend anyone who has early stages of scoliosis or like me, later stages, to take this serious and make an appointment with Rita Miller and learn what your options are! It’s not to late to start changing your back! I am excited to continue learning on how to take care of my back! Thanks Rita for all your help teaching me and I feel positive this will make a huge difference with my scoliosis!”
Bridgett O.

“Our daughter was recently diagnosed with scoliosis, and we have been a bit lost. After spending time with Rita, we are headed home with a plan and hope. Rita is incredibly knowledgeable and provides compassionate care. Excited to continue working with her.”
