Scoliosis and Hyperkyphosis Treatment
At the ScoliCare clinic in Melbourne we’re committed to an evidence-based treatment approach, ready to support you or your child through the treatment journey.
Our process begins with a thorough scoliosis assessment led by one of our clinicians, including a review of X-rays and medical history, and a discussion about any concerns and goals.
Following the assessment, a personalised treatment plan is developed, taking into account factors such as age, severity of the curve, and symptoms. This plan might include bracing, specific exercise rehabilitation (ScoliBalance®), or surgery if deemed in the patient’s best interest.
Dedicated to providing patient-centered care, we always place the individual’s goals at the forefront of the treatment process, aiming to enhance quality of life and achieve the best possible outcomes.

What scoliosis related treatments does ScoliCare offer in Melbourne?
At ScoliCare Melbourne, 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 Melbourne, 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 read our contact us today.
