How we work

Diagnose

Our state of the art diagnostic equipment allows us to quickly and effectively assess scoliosis in patients of all ages. Our cutting edge suite allows us to develop a 3D picture of your body and tailor your treatment to your specific needs, right down to the finest details.

Plan

We work with our patients to develop a multi-level approach to treating their case. This can include a mix of scoliosis specific exercise, bracing, Chiropractic Biophysics and additional approaches. Over the course of several detailed consultations we get to know how your condition affects you, how you see treatment proceeding and how we can help you to best meet your goals as quickly as possible.

Exercise

In most cases we will prescribe scoliosis specific exercise, that can be incorporated into your daily life and activities. Exercise alone can often be effective in mild scoliosis, while enhance the long-term results of bracing and improving body symmetry and reduce pain in adults.

Brace

In cases where scoliosis is significant and where indicated, we’ll recommend a Scolibrace – a highly effective but comfortable and discreet scoliosis brace which, over time, can do much of the work in improving your scoliosis and minimising progression. Our braces are custom designed for you down to the millimetre using our 3D imaging equipment. Braces come in a wide variety of colours and patterns!

Monitor & Optimise

During your treatment, we’ll stay in touch with you regularly, either with face to face meetings at our clinic or online via skype or similar if you prefer. By staying on top of any changes we can ensure that your corrective regime is always at its most effective. During our check in sessions, well evaluate your exercise regime, and address any issues you might have with your treatment regime. Periodically, well examine your case so we can check on overall progress.

Ongoing Care

Once your case is under control and the cobb angle has been stabilised, we will keep working with you to ensure that the scoliosis remains stable and does not worsen. With the UK scoliosis were always available to listen to your thoughts and concerns.

Outstading results

Our unique blend of Spinal bracing, Chiropractic care and scoliosis specific exercise has been the subject of intense research over the past 15-20 years. Today, research confirms that our approach been shown to reduce curve progression in 70 to 90% of cases.

Choose your brace!

Traditional medical braces are designed to hold the spine in a patient’s scoliotic position, which might halt progression – but it actually does nothing to improve the curve.

In contrast, our Scolibrace braces are an active over-corrective brace which works to shift the spine in the opposite direction, back towards normal posture.

Our braces are designed for you from the ground up and are totally customisable (choose your favourite design!). In contrast to traditional braces, they’re lightweight and comfortable to wear.

Why us?

If you’re looking for non-surgical scoliosis treatment, you’ve come to the best place.
We’d like to tell you how were different!

Dr. Phillips grew up in a small farm town in Illinois. Working on the farm at age 10 he developed a very strong work ethic. In 1981 while getting ready for a bodybuilding show he injured his back doing dead lifts in the gym. For two weeks he had no improvement after using different medications, so he decided to try chiropractic. Like most people not knowing much about chiropractic he was not very confident it would work. But soon after receiving treatment his condition did get better.

Being so impressed with the philosophy of natural care to heal the body he decided to enrol at Palmer College of Chiropractic, in Davenport Iowa, in 1983. He graduated in 1986 and received his license to practice in the state of California in 1987. He has been practicing in Woodland since 1988. 

 

It has been a very exciting and fulfilling career to help so many people over the years get well without the use of drugs or surgery. We are not opposed to medical treatment, in fact, many times we do refer our patients to other health specialists when needed. But if possible we try our best to do it naturally.

Dr. Phillips is a Qualified Medical Examiner for the State of California. He can evaluate your condition to determine if we can help you or send you to the proper medical specialist.
