How To Choose The Best Scoliosis Treatment For Your Child

Last updated on March 24th, 2022 at 06:27 am

Non-surgical idiopathic scoliosis treatment options prevent the progression of scoliosis. Treat the whole scoliosis condition and not only the curve.

Receiving a scoliosis diagnosis for your child is downright scary. Parents feel anxious about determining the best treatment options for their child. Traditional medicine offers three recommendations depending on your child’s spinal curvature, age, and gender; the “wait-and-see” approach, rigid bracing, and surgery. 

Innovative non-surgical scoliosis treatment options are available for treating your child’s scoliosis diagnosis. 

What are the drawbacks of traditional treatment for idiopathic scoliosis? 

Traditional scoliosis treatment options offer minimal results.  “Minimally-invasive” surgery, (is any back surgery minimally-invasive?) rigid bracing, and Schroth exercises disrupt your child’s daily living. Plus, these recommendations do not provide long-term curve correction. Receive recommendations for avoiding surgery sent directly to your email inbox.

These choices also take a toll on adolescents and their families. Swirling hormones, feeling the need to look a certain way, and “fit in” are major concerns for pre-teens. Rigid bracing for 18-23 hours per day and physical therapy appointments negatively affect teens. Also, bracing can decrease your child’s lung and oxygen capacity, especially as they grow.

What scoliosis alternative treatment options are available?

There is an effective, research-based, non-invasive option to treat your child’s scoliosis. Innovative techniques including scoliosis-specific physical therapy, exercise, and nutrient therapy prevent further progression. These treatments can also reduce your child’s spinal curvature. This non-invasive program produces the best results.

  • Reduce spine curvature
  • Avoid rigid bracing or surgery
  • Is virtually pain-free
  • Little to no disruption for your child
  • Improve your child’s quality of life with scoliosis

ScoliSMART treatment programs focus on non-invasive solutions for treating idiopathic scoliosis. The ScoliSMART approach prevents your child’s curve from worsening. It can also reduce the curve. This innovative approach includes:

Non-invasive, non-drug options do not limit their energy and independence. Treatment plans bolster your child’s independence in both physical and daily activities.

How a ScoliSMART BootCamp helps your child’s mild or moderate scoliosis. 

Your child’s quality of life is a top priority. The ScoliSMART BootCamp program provides the best results in the least amount of time.  The in-office BootCamp provides pain relief and “retrains” the spinal muscles, creating correct posture.  The 5 or 10-day camps combine exercise, therapy, and one-on-one consultation. This combination prevents curve progression and reduces spine curvature. BootCamps give kids the self-confidence and self-sufficiency to complete a daily home routine

Scoliosis BootCamps work to unlock the spine by decreasing scoliosis rigidity. ScoliSMART experts work with your child. They utilize scoliosis exercise equipment designed to create new muscle memory. Upon camp completion, you and your child leave with homecare equipment and instructions. Also included are home treatment timelines and re-evaluation points. Kids leave BootCamp with a sense of control over their diagnosis.

What are typical results from the BootCamp program? 

The ScoliSMART BootCamp program delivers proven results. In a recent study, 93% of ScoliSMART patients did not reach the surgical threshold after completing the BootCamp. For 12-year-old Angie, the results were incredible. Staying diligent with BootCamp and home exercise is critical. She experienced an 80% reduction in her spine curvature. Her curve changed from 29 degrees to 6 degrees. Parents like yourself, have shared their child’s results. Increased self-confidence and a positive outlook are a few of the life-changing outcomes.

How the best treatment options for idiopathic scoliosis include testing and nutrition.  

The ScoliSMART BootCamps are one non-invasive treatment option for kids with scoliosis. Current research links genetic, neurotransmitter, hormone, and bone health abnormalities with scoliosis. ScoliSMART experts combine scoliosis-specific DNA and neurotransmitter testing with a nutritional therapy plan. This has produced effective outcomes. The success of this treatment is highlighted in a recent blog post.

New research also suggests that testing may predict:

  • Early-onset of scoliosis in children
  • Severe curve progression in kids with scoliosis
