Clinical lab testing reveals the hidden genetic and biological triggers affecting scoliosis progression and treatment

  • Accurately predict the risk of future curve progression
  • Find and correct neurotransmitter and hormone imbalances
  • Customized nutrient therapies to improve treatment
Clinical Lab Testing for Scoliosis Treatments

Why start scoliosis treatment with genetic and clinical lab testing?

ScoliSMART believes successful scoliosis treatment starts with one simple approach. Treat the whole condition and not just the curve. Our research has revealed a group of genetic and biometric factors that contribute to or cause the scoliosis condition. Genetic and clinical lab testing lead the way to effective treatment.

  • Receive test interpretation specific to your scoliosis diagnosis
  • Learn which parts of your metabolic makeup need extra help through supplementation
  • Be guaranteed the privacy of your results
  • Professional grade comprehensive genetic interpretation
  • Test up to 750% MORE genetic variants than 23andMe
  • Personalized nutrient therapy suggestions
  • Privacy guarantee for all genetic data collected

Prediction and prevention

Scoliosis DNA Testing

The experts at ScoliSMART have discovered 28 genetic variants within a person’s genetic DNA that predict if you will develop scoliosis and if you are at risk for curve progression. Genetic testing uncovers the hidden genetic factors responsible for the condition and provides a solid starting point for your treatment. 

Hormone clinical lab testing

For Hormone Balance

Hormone Test Kit

Scoliosis development and curve progression are related to periods of rapid growth in adolescent patients, particularly with the introduction of estrogen in female patients. Also, adult curve progression is linked to the absence of estrogen as patients enter menopause. Clinical lab testing identifies imbalances that affect scoliosis.

  • Simple home-collection urine test
  • Determine balance of estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, and testosterone
  • Insight to the cause and progression of scoliosis
  • Preventing post-menopausal curve progression
  • Discover patterns of neurotransmitter imbalances
  • Lower the risk of further curve progression
  • Scoliosis-specific neurotransmitter testing
  • Improve brain/body communication
Neurotransmitter clinical lab testing

Optimize Neurotransmitter Function

Neurotransmitter Testing

Current clinical data strongly suggest monitoring neurotransmitter imbalances could be utilized as a quick, effective, and non-invasive way of predicting curve progression during adolescent growth. This type of clinical lab testing can lead to improvements in energy levels, mood, and quality of sleep when neurotransmitter levels are properly balanced.

Bone health clinical lab testing

Improve mineral absorption

Bone Health Testing

Bone density and mineral metabolism decrease as we age resulting in a loss of bone matrix which causes osteoporosis. Scoliosis patients are more at risk of complications caused by poor bone health. Clinical lab testing identifies deficiencies that can be measurably improved with guided nutritional therapy.

  • Increased bone density for adult patients
  • Determine the rate of bone metabolism in scoliosis patients
  • Rebuild and remineralize bone matrix
  • Prevent development of osteoporosis
  • Detects levels of six common surgical metals
  • Personalized allergen treatment protocol
  • Determine histamine levels in the body
  • Indicate risk factors for developing allergic reactions
surgical implant metals testing for scoliosis

control allergic responses

Surgical Implant Metals

Exposure to metal surgical hardware can lead to health problems in sensitive patients. Clinical lab testing can positively identify elevated levels of these surgical metals circulating through the bloodstream, which may be a risk factor for developing allergic reactions. This test looks at the circulating blood levels of the six metals that are most commonly associated with metal surgical implants.

Questions About Testing

  • Does tests need to be repeated?

    The recommended time frame at which to retest is shown in your report. However, you or your provider may or may not recommend retesting at a different interval depending upon your response to the nutrients.

  • Will my insurance cover the cost of the tests?
  • Does the Bone Health Test eliminate the need for a Bone Density Scan?
  • Will testing improve my scoliosis?
