1. Dear Dr. Diaz

    I am the mother of a 55 yr.old son who fell off school bars at the age of 12 He had an emergency operation on his
    neck area and was given a stint. Was put in a body cast for a year. Didnot have scolosis but ended up with it.
    He was not good at exercizing that was required. Went to college, plays tennis etc and is 6 foot tall. He has kyfosis
    which will do him in if not corrected He has been to the Shepherds clinic in Atlanta within the last two years.
    Great excercises were given and he decided to correct his legs which had weakened and he was falling. He is now a
    dedicated person who is throwing himself into it as he realizes he has a huge battle coming with his upper back. I think
    he doesnt have any faith that his kyfosis can be corrected but I do. What can you offer? His lower extremities are
    part of his upper back. You make sense to me. Can we continue this conversation? I am always going outside of the box.
    Can you help?.

    • Alice,

      I would suggest that we have a conversation next week about your son’s case to see if the types of corrective movement therapies we offer can help him too. We have helped many people with kyphosis with a combination of the SpineCor brace and the Schroth Method but we would need to know more about his curve, any compression fx?, etc. to determine if our scoliosis treatments could be right for him. Give me a call at (800) 943-1254 and we can talk more after the first of the year.

      Dr. Diaz

  2. Edwin,

    The Schroth exercises are not something that can be learned effectively by just watching a video tape. They require a lot of hands or therapist assistance at the time they are begin taught to insure the patient is doing them correctly. That is why we teach them in weekend intensive classes. If you can bring your daughter to the US for our classes then please contact us at (800) 943-1254 for a Free Phone Consult.

    That such a doctor, wanted to see if I can help, my 12 year old daughter has idiopathic scoliosis and I need help with exercises, can you tell me where I can get videos of them to study them and see if I can put them on my daughter, I live in Mexico . Thank you!
