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.”
