Scoliosis is defined as a curvature of the spine. Often is it first noticed between the ages of 10-13 and girls are more commonly affected. Posture changes are often the first signs of a problem. The best way to correct a scoliosis is early detection with treatment and management as the spine grows.
Several members of our team have performed additional training in scoliosis detection, treatment and management.
We are affiliated with Scolicare and work closely with the Sydney Scoliosis Clinic who are dedicated to non-surgical Scoliosis treatment and management. We are the only clinic north of Brisbane to provide this service.
We have the technology to perform 3D body scans to enable the treatment of moderate curves with rigid bracing. We are able to provide the full service of fitting the brace, monitoring and modifying as the spine grows. We are also qualified to provide the exercise advice to help manage postural distortions caused by a scoliosis.
If you or someone you know has a scoliosis, call the office and make an appointment for an assessment as the earlier a scoliosis is detected the better.
