If you are looking to avoid scoliosis surgery, it’s critical that not only doctor specialize in scoliosis treatment, rather than just as a sideline, but they should also offer a comprehensive scoliosis treatment approach.

3. Are Scoliosis Exercises Specifically Designed To Reduce Scoliosis?
What makes scoliosis different from almost many other type of orthopedic conditions is that there is also a neurological component that must be addressed. Scoliosis is a unilateral rotation dysfunction of the spine. Because of this it requires a very specific scoliosis exercises to correct the rotation of the spine in one direction but not the other.
Scoliosis Exercises performed in the “wrong direction” (ie: encouraging the body to collapse into the abnormal curve pattern) for a scoliosis will actually worsen your condition and should be avoided. Your doctor should know the difference.
Because of this, we recommend the Schroth Method of scoliosis exercise. Specifically designed exercises for scoliosis, they were originally developed in Germany by Katerina Schroth over 80 years ago to treat her own scoliosis. Since then they’ve been shown to be clinically effective for reducing curvatures in scoliosis and continue to be the Gold Standard for scoliosis treatment in Europe. Our doctors and Schroth therapists are among a handful of Certified Schroth Instructors in California.
4. Do They Minimize Your Child’s Exposure to Harmful Radiation?
In managing scoliosis X-ray exposure cannot be fully eliminated but they can certainly be minimized for you or your child. To do this we use Formetric Rastersterography to monitor curvature improvement over time. It provides a highly accurate measurement of spinal rotation found in scoliosis and does this without any harmful radiation. It’s been in university and research clinics in Europe for over 20 years and allows us to reduce x-ray exposure to our patients over the course of their care by as much as 75%!
5. Do They Provide the Clear Method of Scoliosis Correction and Rehabilitation?
The Clear Method has shown some incredible promise in obtaining relatively fast correction of spinal curvatures. We use this system of Rehabilitative therapies in our Campbell office in combination with the Spine Cor corrective scoliosis brace and the Schroth Method of scoliosis exercises to provide a Comprehensive Scoliosis Treatment Program.
