Scoliosis Care in Northbrook

What is Scoliosis?

It’s normal and healthy for the spine to be curved — when viewed from the side, that is. When viewed from the back, the spine should be straight. Scoliosis is a progressive, lateral curve in the spine that can lead to poor posture, slumped shoulders, pain, muscle weakness, and — in extreme cases — heart and lung problems.

Scoliosis can be found in children and adults. Among children, it typically appears between the ages of 11 and 15, although it isn’t unheard of to be found among juveniles (ages 3-10) and infants. Scoliosis can rapidly progress during puberty, and if left untreated, can require surgery to fix. Thankfully, surgery for scoliosis can easily be avoided if treated early enough.

How Can Scoliosis be Treated?

Scoliosis patients can expect to see several effective treatment options that will depend on a few variables specific to the patient. . The major variables include age, degree of scoliosis, the likelihood of progression of curve and severity of deformity or symptoms. Our team is trained to know how these will affect your health/case and develop the best plan for you to move forward in managing your scoliosis. The treatment options can include SEAS (Scientific Exercises Approach to Scoliosis) exercises, Chiropractic BioPhysics care, or Bracing.

Scoliosis bracing is an effective treatment for scoliosis in many cases. It can halt the progression of scoliosis curves, reducing the likelihood of surgery being necessary. It can even reverse scoliosis when the right brace fit and type of brace is used. Bracing is an effective treatment for adolescents, adults and juveniles alike. Braces guide the body and spine into a posture that removes lateral curvature.

Why ScoliBrace?

Not all scoliosis braces are created equal. Most scoliosis braces aren’t custom-made, and often only rely upon a few points of pressure to straighten the spine. This often leads to discomfort and can cause someone who needs the brace to stop using it altogether.

Align Wellness Center recommends ScoliBrace for its patients because each ScoliBrace is 100% custom-made and individualized for the specific needs of each patient using 3D body scans, X-rays and posture photos. The custom-tailored fit makes the ScoliBrace not only the most comfortable of any brace, but the most effective in stopping the progression, and reversing of scoliotic curves.

It’s sleek design means the ScoliBrace is hardly visible underneath clothing, making it far more likely for patients — especially adolescents and teens — to consistently comply with their treatment plans.

The results are short of extraordinary: improved posture, reduced pain, improved appearance, and most importantly, better health. Contact us to learn more about how ScoliBrace can help you.
