The treatment courses we offer here at the Scoliosis SOS Clinic have a very high success rate. This is largely thanks to the fact that we are able to offer our own unique method of therapy, developed specifically by ourselves to provide patients with full treatment for all aspects of their condition. While we previously relied upon the Schroth method alone to treat our patients, we soon realised that, in order to offer a more complete treatment plan, we needed to combine the Schroth method with other proven approaches. Osteopathy
is one of the many techniques that we incorporate into our successful ScolioGold
method, placing an emphasis on the role of the musculoskeletal system in developing a patient's health. First practiced by Andrew Taylor Still, osteopathy uses a range of manual interventions to treat and prevent disease, particularly targeting back and neck pain. According to the principals of the treatment, the attention paid to the musculoskeletal system is able to facilitate the recuperative powers of the body, thereby enabling patients to recover from the damage and pain inflicted by scoliosis and similar conditions.
The main purpose of incorporating osteopathy into our treatment is to help keep the facet joints mobile and, in turn, to provide relief from the pain experienced by scoliosis sufferers. This is achieved by applying the holistic approach used in osteopathic therapies, which aims to release restrictions in the spine and surrounding tissues while improving the patient’s posture and proprioception.
As our dramatic results
demonstrate, the use of osteopathy (in combination with other proven treatment techniques) has allowed us to deliver significant, lasting improvements for our patients. Not only does this technique result in improved posture and reduced symptoms, it also successfully delivers an enhanced ease of movement and relief from discomfort.
