Scoliosis Treatment Without Surgery
There are four critical components of scoliosis that contribute to the development and progression of a curve: root cause, inflexibility, muscular imbalances and the forces of gravity. All four components must simultaneously be addressed in order to achieve the ultimate goal a normal active life beyond scoliosis. Scoliosis Care Centers has specifically targeted devices and treatment protocols to address all four components, with treatment being specific to your child’s unique needs.
Understand the Problem
Understanding your child’s spine
Every curve is different. Size, shape, flexibility and strength are just a few of the things that come into play when discussing scoliosis is on the table. In order to get answers to questions like “what can I do for my child” and “how can I be proactive” we need to understand where the scoliosis is coming from, what kind of limitations have developed and how to best treat the scoliotic curve.
The cause of your scoliosis should not be a mystery.
Some parents, and sometimes even some doctors, behave as though “idiopathic” means there is NO cause. Yet the spine twists and bends for a REASON. Doesn’t the body always have a reason? Treating “adolescent idiopathic scoliosis” as a permanent and final diagnosis denies the rather basic assumption of cause and effect. Perhaps nobody has ever made a diligent effort to find out the reason for your child’s scoliosis. We believe that modern science and caring doctors CAN figure out what’s going wrong, and how to help it. In the words of the French philosopher Voltaire: “No problem can withstand the assault of sustained thinking.”
Scoliosis Care Centers uses an array of physical tests as well as tests using saliva, urine, blood or hair in order to get genetic information and better understanding of whole body health as well as how it relates to your child’s scoliosis. This first step to every program is a necessity when it comes to making long-term success a possibility.
To achieve success it is necessary to apply hyper corrective forces so the spine and nervous system are more flexible before a brace is used. The Scoliosis Flexibility Trainer allows us to create more flexibility in your child’s spine and nervous system.
