As a parent of a child with scoliosis you’ve just been told you should you just “Watch and Wait” to see if scoliosis gets worse. Huh??? You wonder: “Isn’t there some kind of non-surgical scoliosis treatment in Dallas Fort Worth that is available?” The answer is most definitely – “Yes!”
The problem is that often parents are not made aware of the existence of these alternatives by their doctors, which is why you are here looking for answers.
What your doctor probably also didn’t tell you was that latest research in scoliosis indicates that early intervention is key in stopping the progression of scoliosis curvatures. According to a recent study in the Journal of Neurosurgery Pediatrics January 2011 it recommended orthotic or brace treatment in curvatures of 20 degrees of Cobb angle or more regardless of age or curvature location.
As the regional office for Scoliosis Systems we offer a comprehensive non-surgical approach to scoliosis treatment in Dallas Fort Worth area we offer a combination of scoliosis specific exercises, a unique dynamic tension scoliosis brace combined with upper cervical specific adjustments for our patients.
Schroth Method of Scoliosis Exercises
Schroth Method are a series of scoliosis specific exercise that have been clinically proven to help patients manage scoliosis to halt or reverse curvatures without the use rigid scoliosis bracing or surgery. They were originally developed in Germany in the 1930’s and are still in use today as a therapist guided treatment for scoliosis. The exercises are designed to help distortions of the rib cage to assist with scoliosis de-rotating the curvatures of the spine.
Our Doctors are Schroth Method Certified Instructors incorporate this methodology i specifically designed scoliosis exercise and breathing techniques designed to reduce and stabilize scoliosis in conjunction with using SpineCor’s flexible dynamic scoliosis brace.
SpineCor Scoliosis Brace
SpineCor is a unique dynamic tension scoliosis brace that assisting the body in correcting its scoliosis curvatures. While traditional static braces for scoliosis are more like body casts and can result in muscle atrophy as a side effects the SpineCor dynamic tension bands actually helps muscles of the spine move in corrected movement patterns so it’s more like being in physiotherapy as it is worn.
Our Doctors are the most experienced Certified SpineCor Providers in the United States. Over the years Dr. Marc Lamantia and Dr. Gary Deutchman have fit hundreds of adults and thousands of children with scoliosis with the SpineCor brace and now are providing this type of non-surgical scoliosis treatment in Dallas Fort Worth.
Because the SpineCor brace is soft and allows a patient freedom of movement it is easily concealed under their clothing so patient compliance is much higher than with bulky, rigid braces that severely restrict movement.
Specific Scoliosis Adjustments
Recent studies have shown a significant correlation between problems in the upper cervical spine and scoliosis. In fact, the top bone in the spine called the Atlas (from Greek Mythology – holding up the world) has been found to be the most important vertebra to stay in alignment because it provides proper support for our head and allows for a clear passage way for our spinal cord down the spine. Atlas misalignment has been clinically shown to contribute to scoliosis.
Because of this the Atlas Orthogonal methodology was developed as a gentle but effective way of realigning the Atlas. A precise X-ray analysis is used to calculate the exact position of the Atlas so that an Orthogonal Instrument can re-position it, if needed. If your scoliosis appears to have a contributory atlas component then Atlas Orthogonal treatment can be provided in our office.
