Sco­l­io­sis solution

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - BODY, MIND & SOUL -

IN Asia, sco­l­io­sis pa­tients make up close to 30% of the pop­u­la­tion, com­pared to 10% in Western coun­tries.

The emo­tional ef­fects of id­io­pathic sco­l­io­sis can be just as se­ri­ous as the phys­i­cal ef­fects. Ju­ve­nile pa­tients are un­hap­pier with their lives and re­port more phys­i­cal com­plaints, lower self- es­teem and higher de­pres­sion, while adult pa­tients re­port more psy­cho­log­i­cal and phys­i­cal im­pair­ment.

To date, the bulk of the in­for­ma­tion re­lated to Ado­les­cent Id­io­pathic Sco­l­io­sis ( AIS) on­line sup­ports the use of brac­ing and surgery.

Ini­tially, treat­ment con­sists of ob­ser­va­tion un­til the Cobb an­gle

25°, pro­gresses to at which point the pa­tient is placed in a brace. If un­suc­cess­ful in sta­bil­is­ing the pro­gres­sion of the disease, surgery is the only other op­tion.

Spinal Inc be­lieves sur­gi­cal in­ter­ven­tion, while po­ten­tially nec­es­sary at times, is only symp­to­matic treat­ment for a more com­plex con­di­tion and should be con­sid­ered only af­ter ev­ery other op­tion is thor­oughly ex­hausted.

Ded­i­cated to the non- sur­gi­cal treat­ment and cor­rec­tion of id­io­pathic sco­l­io­sis in pa­tients of all ages, Spinal Inc is cer­ti­fied in the Schroth Method and CLEAR In­sti­tute.

At Spinal Inc, the treat­ment in­cludes phys­io­ther­apy based on Schroth and CLEAR, along with a cus­tomised home ex­er­cise pro­gramme.

Id­io­pathic sco­l­io­sis in­volves much more than the spine and the treat­ment meth­ods re­flect this com­plex­ity.

Based on re­sults achieved by pre­vi­ous pa­tients over the past 12 years, Spinal Inc be­lieves its meth­ods for treat­ing id­io­pathic sco­l­io­sis it in­te­grated are the safest and most ef­fec­tive conservative treat­ment.

A pa­tient shared: “When I first found out I had sco­l­io­sis with an ‘ S’ shape, I was in my late 20s. Too afraid and lack­ing parental guid­ance, I de­cided to leave it as it was.

“In my mid- 30s, I started hav­ing back pains at the top area, grad­u­ally show­ing an ob­vi­ous hump on the back.

“What made me take ac­tion was de­cid­ing not to com­pro­mise my qual­ity of life. I started to do re­search and came across Spinal Inc.

“I was de­ter­mined to see re­sults and went for in­ten­sive treat­ment ev­ery­day with a min­i­mum of two ses­sions, com­plet­ing Phase 1 of 72 ses­sions within two months. Re­sults showed a re­duc­tion from 45° 31° 40°

curve to ( left pic) and 29° to ( right pic) curve.

“I’m now mov­ing on to Phase 2 and feel mo­ti­vated to see the re­sults. Spinal Inc is not just a place for treat­ment. It’s where I got to un­der­stand my con­di­tion bet­ter and know the best way pos­si­ble to cor­rect it.”
