When you or your child has been diagnosed with scoliosis, the options can seem painfully limited. Patients who are unwilling to accept the typical solutions—bracing, surgery, or “wait and see”—often struggle to find an alternative treatment that stops scoliosis progression without permanently damaging the spine.
ScoliSMART doctors take a different approach to scoliosis, which is why patients travel from around the world to visit our leading-edge clinics. We work with patients to retrain their brains in a way that helps naturally reverse spinal curves by rebalancing the body’s posture—often negating the need for bracing or surgery.
With four different clinics throughout the United States, we offer a range of scoliosis treatment options for both children and adults. Meet our doctors at each location and find out how we can help you take control of your scoliosis.
