The world's only clinical testing and nutrient therapy program for scoliosis!

Scoliosis lab testing reveals hidden genetic & biological triggers affecting scoliosis and curve progression. Test results used for highly specific nutrient therapies intended to target condition and support scoliosis treatment.

  • At home, self collected saliva and urine samples only. No blood.
  • Straight forward lab reports detail results and recommendations clearly and accurately
  • Customized nutrient therapies based on test results improve treatment results

What does it mean to treat the whole scoliosis condition, and not only the curve? It's a philosophy, not a tagline.

How will testing guided nutritional therapies help improve your child's Scoliosis condition?

  • Research has revealed the existence of abnormal genetic and neurotransmitter patterns that contribute to or cause the idiopathic scoliosis condition.
  • These underlying abnormal patterns lay undetected until kids and teens begin rapid growth spurts causing them to be expressed as the spinal curvature known as "Scoliosis".
  • Each of these abnormal patterns can be improved with highly specific nutrient therapies that are safe, effective, and inexpensive.
  • Testing guided nutrient therapies may be used independently or as a recommended part of a Scoliosis BootCamp program

91% of scoliosis patients had at least 7 out of the 28 genetic variants we have discovered with the average patient having 10 of them.

Chief Science Officer, ScoliSMART

Recommended for kids & teens diagnosed with idiopathic scoliosis and/or non-diagnosed children with a family history of scoliosis.

  • Easy at home saliva collection
  • Available world-wide* & genetic privacy guaranteed
  • Includes simple, self-guided report with results & personalized nutrient therapy recommendations
  • Online customer support.

FACT: Patients with 14 or more of the 28 genetic variants for scoliosis were 33% more likely to develop severe scoliosis.

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 severe curve progression. Genetic testing uncovers the hidden genetic factors that may be responsible for the condition and provides non-drug nutrient therapy recommendations intended to reduce the negative affects these genetic variants have on the scoliosis condition.

We have discovered 3 separate neurotransmitter imbalance patterns associated with scoliosis

ScoliSMART

Recommended for kids & teens diagnosed with idiopathic scoliosis

  • Easy at home urine collection
  • Tests all scoliosis related neurotransmitter patterns
  • Includes simple, self-guided report with results & personalized nutrient therapy recommendations
  • Online customer support. Testing available in USA only.

Neurotransmitter imbalances were present in patients with severe scoliosis almost 85% of the time

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. Testing guided non-drug nutrient therapies have demonstrated significantly improved treatment results when combine with the Scoliosis BootCamp program. Patients often report improved energy levels, mood, and quality of sleep when neurotransmitter levels are properly balanced.

Scoliosis affect females 7 x more than males, so it is clear that hormone balance plays a role in the development of scoliosis

Dr. Brian T. Dovorany, DC
ScoliSMART

Recommended for kids & teens diagnosed with idiopathic scoliosis

  • Easy at home saliva collection
  • Tests all scoliosis related hormones
  • Includes simple, self-guided report with results & personalized nutrient therapy recommendations
  • Online customer support. Testing available in USA only.

Hormones are well-known to increase the rate of severe scoliosis progression due to their impacts on abnormal bone growth and biomechanical factors.

Hormone Testing

Scoliosis development and curve progression are related to periods of rapid growth in adolescent patients, particularly with the introduction of estrogen in female patients. This testing will identify imbalances and provide non-drug nutrient therapy recommendations based off test results. 

Bone health and development are the most researched aspects of the scoliosis condition

Dr. Clayton J. Stitzel, DC
CEO, ScoliSMART

Recommended for kids & teens diagnosed with idiopathic scoliosis

  • Easy at home urine collection
  • Tests rate of bone metabolism
  • Includes simple, self-guided report with results & personalized nutrient therapy recommendations
  • Online customer support. Testing available in USA only.

Lower bone density in children with idiopathic scoliosis is directly associated with higher curve severity. This risk persists even into adulthood.

Bone. 2020 Apr;133:115217.

Bone Health Testing

Bone development in patients with idiopathic is the most researched aspect of the condition.  Research suggests specific genetic variants may lead to poor bone development during the adolescent growth years.  This testing will measure the rate of bone metabolism and provide non-drug nutrient therapy recommendations based off test results.

What does treat the whole condition and not only the curve really mean?

Scoliosis is much more than the curve on an X-Ray. Using scoliosis-specific lab testing and nutrient therapies along with Scoliosis BootCamps and the ScoliSMART Activity Suit creates a treatment program that works with all areas of the scoliosis condition.
