Alternative Scoliosis Treatment Have you heard of “Alternative Scoliosis Treatment”? It does exist even though your orthopedic never mentioned it. Alternative scoliosis treatment has been around for many years. In fact, it was around before scoliosis surgery and scoliosis braces came into existence. In the olden day alternative scoliosis treatment entailed various apparatuses pushing and pulling your spine straighter. Today, alternative scoliosis treatment is more evolved and has gained wider acceptance by patients and garnered the attention of the scientific community. Alternative scoliosis treatment enjoys a greater following today in part due to failed or mixed results attained through scoliosis surgery and scoliosis bracing and satisfying results obtained from conventional options in alternative scoliosis treatment. Neuro-muscular re-education, an alternative scoliosis treatment of choice, changing the way we think about Scoliosis... A growing body of evidence supports the efficacy of specialized scoliosis treatment programs of Neuro-muscular rehabilitation. Scoliosis Boot Camp is one of those highly sought out alternative scoliosis treatment that has at its root Neuro-muscular rehabilitation. Scoliosis Boot Camp places a significant emphasis on the brains communication with the muscles. In essence Scoliosis Boot Camp's emphasis on neuro- muscular rehabilitation, 're-maps' the way the brain communicates with the muscles. This re-mapping corrects the signals the brain sends to the muscles resulting in permanent reduction in the scoliotic curve. A closer look at Scoliosis BootCamp... Scoliosis BootCamp is a 10-day alternative scoliosis treatment designed for curves greater than 25. It aims to reposition your spine by first, loosening and lengthening your spinal tissue, then re-mapping your neurological system (i.e., changes the signals - "straighter spine", the brain sends to the muscles) and finally retaining this re-mapping. Aside from Scoliosis Boot Camp, other forms of alternative scoliosis treatment include yoga, spinal manipulation, and APOS. Each of these enjoy a greater following from patients with smaller scoliotic curves. The benefits from these forms of Alternative Scoliosis Treatment range from pain reduction to scoliosis stabilization. Yoga has been widely used by adults largely for its effectiveness in pain management. As Yoga helps to strengthen postural muscles, it could also help to slow the progression of scoliosis while mitigating pain. Spinal manipulation is another popular form of alternative scoliosis treatment. It is mainly sought out by adults for its pain management efficacy. Another alternative scoliosis treatment that is gaining a following today is the APOS system. Known for its effectiveness in treating knee pain, APOS system is most recently being sought out for scoliosis. While research is pending, APOS practitioners claim it changes your gait which helps to stabilize your scoliosis but, it does not correct the curve. It is also claimed to help with pain. Alternative Scoliosis treatment has been around even before scoliosis surgery or scoliosis bracing came into existence and it is safe to say that it will play an even larger role in the treatment of scoliosis in the future. The alternative scoliosis treatment option you choose depends on your goals, age, nature and size of your scoliotic curve among other factors. What is important to note is that you have options - GOOD alternative scoliosis treatment options... BETTER than Bracing...SAFER than surgery... and, that is GREAT NEWS!
