Course Instructor(s)

  • Julianne M Reinstein, MS, PT, BSPTS C2/SEAS C2

    Julie Reinstein graduated in 1993 from D'Youvile University in Buffalo, NY. She has been a private practice owner, and has been in outpatient orthopedics for 30 years. Julie started specializing in scoliosis in 2015 when she became certified in the Schroth Method through the Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School (BSPTS). She is C1 & C2 certified for pediatrics and adult populations. The passion that her BSPTS mentors, Hagit Berdivshevsky and Amy Sbhili displayed for the scoliosis population was so contagious, that Julie continued to expand her knowledge-base on scoliosis by earning 2 certifications in the SEAS (Scientific Exercise Approach to Scoliosis) Method under the direction of Michele Romano and Alessandra Negrini. Today, Julie solely treats scoliosis patients at her Buffalo, NY clinic. Her dedication to the scoliosis population continues by lecturing to both students and medical professionals about scoliosis and the rehabilitation benefits of scoliosis-specific exercises.
