Learning about scoliosis for the first time can be an uphill struggle, especially if you, or someone you love has just been diagnosed. There are lots of approaches out there – so how do you know which one is best?
At the Phillips Scoliosis Center, we believe we’re better positioned to help you beat scoliosis than anyone else – and here’s why.
Our fundamental starting belief is that all health professionals should follow well researched, evidence based techniques and approaches when implementing treatment plans with patients. That means our techniques must be based on treatment methodologies which have been proven successful in other patients, that it must be possible for us to monitor and quantify ongoing progress and that our treatments should provide a long term solution – not a quick fix.
What makes a good scoliosis clinic?
A reputable scoliosis clinic should be able to provide a range of treatment options for scoliosis ranging from scoliosis specific exercise to 3-dimensional bracing techniques supported by other methodologies where appropriate. A good clinician will recommend the most appropriate treatment option(s) for each individual case, and never simply try to fit every patient into the single treatment method they offer.
At the Phillips Scoliosis Center, we begin our relationship with each and every patient with a detailed consultation, we use this information to construct a totally individual treatment plan which we keep under regular review. If scoliosis bracing is recommended, we use the latest 3D scanning technology to create a brace which is perfectly fitted to you and your needs – you can even choose your favourite colour and design!
In addition, we go beyond most clinics in offering a range of complementary treatments, which while they are not intended to prevent, or cure scoliosis can play a bit role in reducing and pain or discomfort you are expecting in the immediate term. We have on site specialists who can provide everything from chiropractic adjustments, to sports massage or postural analysis optimisation.
So how do I choose?
The diagnosis of scoliosis can be a confusing and overwhelming time for the patient and in many cases their parents too. Choosing a Scoliosis Clinic who can explain the evidence behind all available treatments will help ensure the best chance at good results.
