Adult BootCamp

adult bootcampOur moderate intensity exercise based program is designed to:

  • Stop or slow adult progression
  • Reduce and stabilize existing curvature
  • Improve function and cosmetic appearance
  • Eliminate the need for invasive bracing or surgery

This program uses a unique process to first Un-Lock the spine by decreasing scoliosis rigidity caused from neurological and soft tissue adaptations. Followed by ScoliSMART™ training using patented scoliosis exercise equipment specifically designed to create new muscle memory. Scoliosis BootCamp™ comes complete with homecare equipment and instructions, timelines, and re-evaluation points. Thousands of children and adults have been through our Scoliosis BootCamp™ program achieving lasting scoliosis reduction, cosmetic improvement, and have avoided more invasive scoliosis procedures like bracing or spinal fusion surgery.

What Happens After Scoliosis Camp? The 5 R’s of a Successful BootCamp Program 

Reduce Curve Rigidity

Every patient’s curvature will carry a certain amount of rigidity. Your doctor will determine what treatment is necessary to decrease curve rigidity. 

Retrain Muscle

ScoliSMART™ exercises are used to recruit new muscle memory which holds the  spine in  a new straighter position.

Repeat Home Training

Multiple sessions of ScoliSMART™ exercise training at home will cause corrective adaptation and spinal stability.

Re-Evaluate

Periodic evaluations are needed to monitor success of your home care program and determine if more clinical treatment is needed. 

Re-Engage

Additional treatment may be necessary to achieve greater scoliosis reduction levels. 

Scoliosis is a progressive condition that is most active and aggressive during the adolescent years in which a child is experiencing periods of rapid growth. It is imperative that an ongoing scoliosis training program is consistently performed on a daily basis. The single most important factor in the continued long-term success of scoliosis stabilization is a high compliance rate with the home training program.  It needs to be recognized from the very beginning that the home care program is a long-term commitment and must be continued to ensure stabilization of the scoliosis during these periods of rapid growth.

The greatest factors in ensuring compliance to a long-term home training program are a positive patient attitude towards the program and a low confusion rate.   Keep it fun/rewarding and keep it simple. While the patient will need to dedicate a fair amount of time and effort into the initial scoliosis training program during the curve reduction phase of treatment, they can often maintain their scoliosis reduction with less effort once the curvature has been stabilized.

 

Static ScoliSMART™ Training

Morning (1 session before school or work): 
Wear ScoliSMART™ Training Equipment 20 minutes

Afternoon (2 sessions after school or work)
Wear ScoliSMART™ Training Equipment 20 minutes
Spinal molding program prior to bed 15 minutes if prescribed.

Weekends (Up to 5 Sessions permitted)

Dynamic ScoliSMART™ Training

1-2 hours daily movement wearing the ScoliSMART™ Activity Suit

Generally this routine is required for at least 6-8 months before scoliosis stability is achieved and a reduction of home care frequency can be considered, always consult your doctor when changing training frequency.
