Our aim is to provide the right treatment at the right time to patients with scoliosis or hyperkyphosis based in Adelaide or regional South Australia.
Babies, children, adolescents and adults visit our scoliosis clinic for assessment and treatment.

Scoliosis and Hyperkyphosis Treatment
Dedicated to taking an evidence-based approach to treatment, our team at the Adelaide ScoliCare clinic is ready to help you, or your child, begin the treatment journey.
We start with a thorough scoliosis assessment with one of our clinicians, which includes a review of X-rays and medical history, and discussion about any concerns and goals.
Our approach to scoliosis treatment is a comprehensive and patient-centered one, tailored to individual needs.
After the assessment, a personalised treatment plan will be developed. The treatment options suggested will depend on a multitude of factors such as age, the severity of the curve and current symptoms, and could include recommendations for bracing, specific exercise rehabilitation (ScoliBalance®) or surgery, if that is in the patient’s best interest.
Our commitment to patient-centered care ensures that the individual’s goals are at the forefront of the treatment process, ultimately striving to improve quality of life and achieve the best possible outcomes.

What scoliosis related treatments does ScoliCare offer in Adelaide?
Our clinic team is dedicated to offering cutting-edge and minimally invasive scoliosis treatment options for babies, children, adolescents and adults at ScoliCare Adelaide. Common treatment options for scoliosis have traditionally involved options like generic bracing and surgical intervention. At ScoliCare, our scoliosis treatment options include:
- Personalised 3D scanned braces — ScoliCare offers a truly custom 3D spinal brace for children, adolescents and adults with scoliosis and kyphosis. The unique approach means that no two braces are the same just as no two curves are the same. Specially created for you after a comprehensive scoliosis assessment and scanning, these braces can help improve postural alignment and provide relief to common scoliosis symptoms.
- Scoliosis specific exercises — As a leading provider of high-quality scoliosis specific exercise programs in Adelaide, we firmly believe that a dynamic and personalised exercise approach is an excellent treatment option for many people living with scoliosis or kyphosis. It is a treatment that is often combined with bracing. We call our program, ScoliBalance®.
- Spinal fusion — Commonly recommended for patients with moderate to severe cases of scoliosis, spinal fusion is not always your only option for treatment. At ScoliCare, we encourage our patients to explore the full range of non-surgical options available before committing to surgery. For more information about our recommendations and services, please contact us today.
