Scoliosis Treatment (IC : Intensive Care)
Recommended for patients living more than 45 minutes away from our clinic
IC (Intensive Care) scoliosis treatment generally provides excellent results in the least amount of time, and with minimal disruption to the daily schedule of the patient and patient's family's.
It is comprised of 5-10 days of treatment (not including weekends) with each day's treatment lasting up to 4-5 hours and normally totaling about 25-30 hours of treatment over the course of each week.
Following treatment, we will provide a comprehensive, customized home rehabilitation protocol designed to maintain the gains achieved during the treatment period, promote further gains in correction of spinal curvature, and help increase spinal stability during any upcoming growth spurts.
1 week of IC treatment is recommended for curvatures of less than 25 degrees.
For curvatures of 25 to 30 degrees, 2 weeks of IC treatment are recommended.
For curvatures of greater than 30 degrees, the purchase of a scoliosis traction chair may be required.
Scoliosis Treatment (Expanded Care)
Recommended for patients who live close to our clinic
For patients who live near bones+beyond and are able to visit frequently for weekly appointments, we offer the option of an "Expanded Care" treatment plan.
The Expanded Care treatment plan offers essentially the same treatment as the Intensive Care plan except that the patient is seen 2-3 times per week over the course of 4 and 1/2 months.
The Expanded Care option offers the possibility of treatment with no or minimal interruption of regular routine (school, work, etc.).
