In New York City’s Financial District, Dr. Irina Logman, DACM, LAc and her team at Advanced Holistic Center use acupuncture for the treatment of many different illnesses and their symptoms.
Conditions we treat range from many of those associated with the cardiovascular, digestive and endocrine systems to issues with the immune, muscular, nervous and skeletal systems, including scoliosis.

While each case is unique, the highly trained and licensed providers at Advanced Holistic Center can tailor the proper scoliosis treatment regimen to suit your individual needs.
What Is Acupuncture?
The word “acupuncture” is derived from the Latin word ‘acus,’ meaning needle, and ‘punctura,’ which of course means to puncture. The treatment of acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into targeted areas of the body in order to bring energy flow back into proper balance. This treatment modality can also have a neurological effect.
Acupuncture, when performed correctly, can be very beneficial in that it is safe, has very few side effects and can be combined with other physical and medicinal treatments, such as Schroth physical therapy, offered here by Dr. Logman and our experienced treatment team.
What Is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is defined as a three-dimensional deviation of the spinal axis or simply put, an abnormal curvature of the spine. The curve is typically either shaped like the letter “C” or the letter “S.” This disease can occur from a variety of different origins such as congenital, neurological, and musculoskeletal disorders as well as traumatic injuries or even aging. However, many cases have no known origin.
The experienced acupuncturists Advanced Holistic Center have treated scoliosis patients from all age groups. Treatment options for scoliosis can be categorized as surgical or conservative. Conservative treatments include bracing, casting, physiotherapy – and acupuncture.
