Early Intervention and Neuromuscular Retraining Key for Best Outcomes
Braces, surgery and observation until a curve measures over 20 degrees are the three most common scoliosis treatments, yet none of these actually stabilizes or reduces the condition. Muscle retraining, genetic testing and nutritional support are more recent treatment options that provide measurable, long-term results.
So why are we using it?
Doctors commonly opt to only observe children with early stage scoliosis—curves measuring less than 20 degrees—for at least the first six months. The idea is that doctors can tell if the mild scoliosis is progressive or not after this time. Yet, if the curve reaches 25 degrees, there’s a 68 percent chance the scoliosis will continually get worse. The ScoliSMART™ doctors know it’s best to intervene and start spinal resistance training as soon as scoliosis is detected.
Giving the condition six months to worsen before you take action isn’t logical. Our innovative system unlocks the curvature, mobilizes the spinal joints and trains the brain to learn a new spinal position. This retraining program can slow or eliminate curve progression regardless of the stage of scoliosis, but the sooner your child starts it, the more likely it is the curve will never reach 25 degrees.
