What Are the Advantages of the ScoliSMART Approach for My Child?
As parents with children of our own we understand scoliosis is more than just measurements on x-rays, your child’s health, quality of life, and treatment experience when diagnosed with a spinal condition is of paramount importance. Our approach is proactive, non-invasive, and does not require kids to be exposed to the socially embarrassing day time scoliosis braces or having to choose between the sports/activities they love and effective treatment.
Finding a Better Way to Treat Scoliosis
Finding a better way to treat scoliosis means a providing a clinically effective approach while maintaining your child’s quality of life by keeping them active and healthy and making childhood memories that last of a lifetime.
3 Key Benefits of the ScoliSMART Approach
- Treatment can be done entirely at home discretely
- No limitation or restrictions. Patient can continue all sports/activities.
- Pain free, self-guided, short home rehab sessions
- Halts curve progression and encourages curve reduction
- Increase breathing capacity
- Encourages better posture
The ScoliSMART approach not only stops scoliosis from getting worse it can actually shrink existing spinal curvature, improve physical appearance and breathing, and reduce or eliminate pain improving the overall quality of life for patients with scoliosis.
What Makes the ScoliSMART Approach Different?
The ScoliSMART treatment approach is by far the most comprehensive program available for both adolescent and adult patients with idiopathic scoliosis. We treat the whole condition and not just the curve.
How Does the ScoliSMART Activity Suit Differ from Traditional Bracing?
Unlike a scoliosis brace which creates rigid forces against the ribcage and pelvis, the activity suit uses an elastic tension system causing the spinal curvature to untwist while the patient is doing everyday activities.
Are There Any Risks with the ScoliSMART Approach?
There are no inherent risks with the ScoliSMART approach, which is completely non-invasive and pain-free. In fact, waiting to start treatment often results in growth related worsening and increases the risk of more invasive procedures in the future.
