Scoliosis is a neuro-musculo-skeletal disorder that can cause the vertebrae in the spine to laterally curve and rotate. Scoliosis is believed to have various causes including heredity, hormonal imbalance due to a neurological disorder, or an adaptation to some type of trauma, such as trauma occurring during the birth process, or trauma due to an injury, such as falling off a bicycle.
The problem usually starts in the lower back and mid-back. Because spinal bones continue to grow well into the early 20s, if left uncorrected, scoliosis often progressively worsens.
Unfortunately, the most common treatment approaches have been to wait and see how much worse the scoliosis will become, the use of braces, which are unsightly and ineffective in reversing the condition's progression, and, eventually, when the condition has worsened to an extreme enough degree, surgery.
Most types of scoliosis are classified as “Idiopathic Scoliosis”—that is, scoliosis resulting from unknown causes. There is also “Congenital Scoliosis,” which usually occurs due to congenital anomalies of the vertebrae or ribs.
There are 3 types of Idiopathic Scoliosis:
Infantile Idiopathic Scoliosis can occur between birth and 3 years of age.
Juvenile Idiopathic Scoliosis can occur from age 3 through 10 with an average age of onset of 7. It can lead to severe lateral curvature, and upwards of 30% of sufferers will eventually have corrective surgery. At Bones and Beyond, using the scoliosis correction method developed by CLEAR Institute, we can correct this type of scoliosis at its early stages and thereby avoid the need for surgery.
Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis can occur from the age of 10 until skeletal maturity and is the most common type of Idiopathic Scoliosis.
The success of our Scoliosis correction method for reversing scoliosis-induced spinal curvature depends on the fulfillment by the patient of 2 key commitments:
Learn all the facts about your scoliosis and if you think that you can fulfill the 2 key commitments mentioned above, our treatment method is probably right for you.
The most basic formula for correcting a condition as complex as scoliosis-induced curvature is: WORK + WORK + MORE WORK = RESULTS. It's that simple!
