Orthopaedic Medicine

Here at Scoliosis SOS, we know that every scoliosis sufferer is different, and so we always aim to understand each patient's unique experiences in order to deliver lasting positive results. Our ScolioGold method consists of a variety of proven non-surgical techniques that we have combined into one scoliosis treatment programme that seeks to address every aspect of the condition.

Although the Schroth method is our primary technique for the treatment of scoliosis, it is complemented with an assortment of other recognised and medically sound treatment methods from across the globe, including the use of orthopaedic medicine.

What is orthopaedic medicine?

Established in the UK in 1929, orthopaedic medicine is used to diagnose and treat non-surgical lesions of the musculoskeletal system. The founder of this practice, Dr James Cyriax, found that there was no satisfactory method in place to test the function of soft tissues in areas such as the joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons, making treatment of associated conditions unreliable and non-specific. 

From his research, he developed a system for assessing the patient and devising a suitable treatment programme, which has influenced the way in which we provide therapies for musculoskeletal disorders today. Using a combination of exercises and stretches to enhance the patient's muscle strength, this technique can provide significant relief from pain and improve overall bodily function, a result that we have seen in many scoliosis patients when using orthopaedic medicine as a treatment method.

Along with increased range of movement, relief from pain is often a key goal for scoliosis sufferers, which is why orthopaedic medicine plays such an important role in the treatment we provide at our clinic. The effectiveness of our treatment is reflected by the continued improvements recorded in our patients, which show substantial reductions in pain both immediately after their treatment course and as they continue to maintain their exercise programme at home.
