Scoliosis is defined as a spinal angulation of greater than 10 degrees in the frontal plane with spinal torsion. Incidence of idiopathic scoliosis is 2- 3%. Symptoms associated with scoliosis include pulmonary dysfunction and spinal pain. Cobb angle greater than 25° requires physical therapy to stop progression of curve. Cobb angle greater than 45° requires surgical intervention. The purpose of this case report was to evaluate the effects of an aquatic and land based exercise program on an adult who presented with severe, untreated scoliosis.
