Non-surgical way to treat scoliosis
IN Asia, scoliosis sufferers make up close to 30% of the population, compared with 10% in Western countries. Idiopathic scoliosis has been proven to cause significant physical and emotional stress as it continues to progress well beyond skeletal maturity and commonly for the remainder of the patient’s life.
The emotional effects of idiopathic scoliosis can be every bit as real and serious as the physical effects.
Juvenile patients with idiopathic scoliosis were unhappier with their lives – they reported more physical complaints, had lower self-esteem and higher rates of depression.
Adult patients reported more psychological and physical impairment.
To date, the bulk of information you will find related to Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) on the Internet supports the use of bracing and surgery.
Initially, treatment from a doctor consists of observation only, until the Cobb angle progresses to 25°, at which point the patient is placed in a brace.
If bracing is unsuccessful in stabilising the progression of the disease, which is frequently the case, surgery is the only other option the medical community has to offer.
Spinal Inc believes that surgical intervention, while potentially necessary at times is only symptomatic treatment for a much more complex condition.
Surgery should be a last resort for the treatment of idiopathic scoliosis and to be considered only after every other option has been thoroughly exhausted.
Spinal Inc is dedicated to the non-surgical treatment and correction of idiopathic scoliosis in patients of all ages. It is certified in the Schroth Method and CLEAR Institute.
The Schroth Method started in the 1920s when Katharina Schroth developed it based on her personal experience with scoliosis as a teenager. She started sharing her techniques with patients and eventually at her own clinic in Germany.
Today, over a thousand patients are treated annually at the Asklepios Kathathrina-Schroth Hospital in Germany.
Conservative treatment for spinal deformities is well-accepted in Europe with large centres in Germany (Schroth), Spain (BSRS), and Italy (ISICO).
Treatment includes physiotherapy based on Schroth and CLEAR, accompanied by a home exercise programme customised for each patient’s specific needs.
Idiopathic scoliosis is a disease involving much more than just the spine, and the treatment methods reflect this complexity.
You are encouraged to learn more about how its approach goes beyond typical conservative idiopathic scoliosis care and why Spinal Inc believes it can demonstrate a measurable reduction in the severity of idiopathic scoliosis on an X-ray in as quickly as six months.
Based on the results achieved from previous patients over the past 12 years, Spinal Inc believes that the methods integrated by it is safe and an effective treatment for the correction of idiopathic scoliosis.
