Our Scoliosis Therapy Centre

Our Scoliosis Therapy Centre provides Schroth 3D scoliosis exercise therapy for juvenile, adolescent and adult patients with Idiopathic Scoliosis. Our programs are customized for patients based on their major Idiopathic curve type.

Desired patient outcomes for individuals with idiopathic scoliosis are influenced by age and their immediate or likely risk of progression.

A prime concern for adolescent patients is preventing curvature progression to avoid spinal fusion surgery; for adults it's about quality of life; preventing progression and relief of pain syndromes.

Irrespective of age, improving body aesthetics, and psychological well-being are desired outcomes for both adolescent and adult patients.

 

Our Schroth 3D Therapy Programs adhere to The International Scientific Society on Scoliosis Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Treatment (SOSORT) 2016 Guidelines for the conservative treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis during growth.

 

SOSORT's Pimary treatment goals as stated in the 2016 Guidelines are:

1. to stop curve progression at puberty (and possibly even reduce it)
2. to prevent or treat respiratory dysfunction
3. to prevent or treat spinal pain syndromes
4. to improve aesthetics via postural correction

It's Absolute goal is to avoid surgery.

To achieve best possible outcomes, comprehensive conservative treatment of Idiopathic Scoliosis requires a team approach composed of an Orthopaedic Surgeon, Orthotist, Therapist and if required a psychologist.
