Our Approach

Scoliosis and Hyperkyphosis Treatment

Committed to an evidence-based approach in addressing scoliosis and hyperkyphosis, the team at Brisbane ScoliCare clinic is well prepared to assist you or your child in embarking on the treatment journey.

The process begins with a thorough scoliosis assessment, conducted by one of our clinicians. This includes a detailed review of X-rays and medical history, along with a discussion about any concerns and treatment goals.

Our approach to scoliosis treatment is centered around the individual patient, personalised to meet specific needs.

Following the assessment, a tailored treatment plan will be developed. The recommended treatment options will be based on various factors, including age, the curvature size, current symptoms, and may include recommendations for bracing, specific exercise rehabilitation (ScoliBalance®), or surgery, if deemed beneficial for the patient.

Our strong commitment to patient-centered care ensures that the individual’s goals remain at the forefront of the treatment process, aiming to enhance quality of life and achieve the best possible outcomes for each patient.

At ScoliCare Brisbane, our clinic team is dedicated to offering cutting-edge and minimally invasive scoliosis treatment options for babies, children, adolescents and adults. 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 Brisbane, 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.

When it comes to finding quality scoliosis treatment in Brisbane, ScoliCare should strongly be considered. We undertake a thorough assessment and then provide details of all treatment options available whether it be bracing, exercise or surgery. As advocates for minimally-invasive and non-surgical treatment options for scoliosis, we believe in taking a holistic and personalised approach to supporting the health of your spine. Able to treat both children and adults, our interdisciplinary team of spine health practitioners works together to help each one of our patients on their individual journey.
