Say ‘ no’ to scoliosis
IN Asia, the incidence of scoliosis sufferers is close to 30% of the population, compared to 10% in the Western countries.
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 depression.
Adult patients reported more psychological and physical impairment.
To date, the bulk of the 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 disease progression, which is frequently the case, surgery is the only other option.
Spinal Inc believes surgical intervention, while potentially necessary at times, is only symptomatic treatment for a much more complex condition.
It believes surgery should be a last resort for the treatment of idiopathic scoliosis, and only after every other option has been exhausted.
Spinal Inc is dedicated specifically to the non- surgical treatment and correction of Idiopathic Scoliosis in patients of all ages.
It is certified in Schroth Method and CLEAR Institute.
The method started in the 1920s by Katharina Schroth who developed it based on her personal experience with scoliosis as a teenager.
She started sharing her tech- niques with patients and eventually her own clinic in Germany.
Today, over one thousand patients are treated annually at the Asklepios KathathrinaSchroth Hospital in Germany.
The treatment includes physiotherapy based on Schroth and CLEAR, accompanied with a home exercise programme, which is customised for each patient’s specific needs.
Idiopathic scoliosis is a disease involving more than just the spine, and its treatment methods reflect this complexity.
Patients are encouraged to learn more about how the Spinal Inc approach goes far beyond typical conservative idiopathic scoliosis care, and why it 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, it believes that the methods for treating idiopathic scoliosis integrated by Spinal Inc is the safest and most effective conservative treatment for the correction of idiopathic scoliosis.
