There are a relatively high percentage of adults that live with lower back pain. In fact
approximately 80% of adults will suffer from back pain at some point in their life. Low
back pain is the fifth leading cause for doctor visits and over 60 billion dollars are spent
on back pain treatment annually. Lower back pain is most commonly produced from
surrounding spine tissues such as joints, discs, ligaments, and muscles and is not often
caused from more serious problems like fractures, inflammatory arthritis or cancers.
The term “mechanical low back pain” is used to describe this type of common problem
that afflicts so many Americans on a daily basis.

Scoliosis is a common problem with adults as well and there are a much larger
percentage of adults that have scoliosis, especially scoliosis of the lumbar spine, than in
children. Common mainstream treatments for adult scoliosis include, chiropractic,
massage, injections, and even surgery are delivered routinely for back pain. Alternative
scoliosis treatment is often overlooked mainly because it is limited and fairly new to the
back pain market. “Scoliosis Boot Camp” is an intense exercise based program that takes
place over the course of just a week or two has helped thousands of adults relive their
back pain on a more permanent level. The program is specifically designed to reduce
and stabilize your scoliosis decreasing the mechanical irritations that often lead to lower
back pain and excess wear and tear on the bones, discs, and joints.

Scoliosis Boot Camp focuses on decreasing the soft tissue stiffness that often
accompanies adult scoliosis. The use of continuous passive motion combined with
vibration and traction slowly and gently decreases the tension and stiffness that forms
in the muscles, discs, and ligaments due to the scoliosis imbalances. This form of
alternative scoliosis treatment is very safe and comes with a home care program that
helps maintain the flexibility and stabilizes the corrections achieved during the scoliosis
boot camp sessions. Many patients experience improved function levels like range of
motion, breathing, and balance as well as cosmetic improvements like improved posture
and less asymmetry in hips and ribcage.

The standard treatment model often is not aware of this highly advanced alternative
scoliosis treatment option and many patients simply miss out on this wonderful
opportunity to relieve their back pain by reducing the poor body mechanics that often
accompany adult scoliosis. Before settling for chiropractic, drugs, or surgeries be sure to
find out more about this unique scoliosis boot camp program the cutting edge
alternative scoliosis treatment option for adults with spinal curvature and back pain.
