Generally, scoliosis surgery is reserved for spinal curvatures of more than 50 degrees or in cases where other treatments are not viable. We prefer to offer alternatives to surgery where possible to help the patient recover from scoliosis with as little discomfort and inconvenience as possible. Depending on whether it’s an infant, juvenile, adolescent or adult presenting with scoliosis symptoms, the treatment options can be varied, depending on the severity of scoliosis.
We highly recommend a visit to our clinic to discuss the appropriate treatment methods available to suit your diagnosis and lifestyle requirements. You may simply require scoliosis-specific exercises, or it may be determined that you will benefit more from a brace, or you may require both. In the event surgery is deemed appropriate we are here to guide you through the process from offering surgical referrals to our network of scoliosis surgeons and will assist you through the recovery stages. That being said, non-surgical scoliosis treatment is our main aim wherever possible.
