Scoliosis Treatment Without Surgery
There are four critical components of scoliosis that contribute to the development and progression of a curve:
- The Root Cause
- Muscular Imbalances
- The Forces of Gravity
All four components must simultaneously be addressed in order to achieve the ultimate goal of a normal active life unhindered by scoliosis. Scoliosis Care Centers has specifically targeted diagnostics, treatment protocols, and break-through technology that address all four components.
Understand the Problem
Understanding your spine
Every curve is different. Size, shape, flexibility, and strength are just a few of the things that come into play when discussing scoliosis. To answer the questions “Can I reduce my scoliosis?” and “How can it be treated?”, we need to understand where the scoliosis is coming from, what kind of limitations have developed, and how to best treat the 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.
Scoliosis Care Centers uses a comprehensive non-surgical treatment plan for adolescent scoliosis outlined in four main components listed below.
To achieve success, it is necessary to apply specific corrective forces to your scoliosis. The Scoliosis Flexibility Trainer allows us to create this flexibility in your spine. Targeting this element prepares you to wear the Silicon Valley Brace.
