Alternative Scoliosis Treatment Vs Scoliosis Surgery
Conservative Scoliosis Treatment Favored over surgery by the public, yet conventional scoliosis treatment in the US is moving towards surgery. This is occurring even though the public is demanding more conservative alternatives. The incidents of surgery has risen over the past few years from 34% to 55% over the past two decades, despite the scientific validation of the effectiveness of comprehensive conservative scoliosis treatment. Could this be due to the fact that the average associated costs of a scoliosis surgery can range from $50,000 to over $100,000?
What is clear the public wants a more conservative approach to scoliosis treamtent that is scienfically validated and effective. What also appears to be pointed out by this study is that there is a distortion in patient care towards surgical options caused by the predominance of a single medical specialty managing scoliosis treatment.

While there certainly are approaches that are currently available, (ie: Combination therapy that includes Dynamic scoliosis bracing and scoliosis specific exercises to improve the postural component of a scoliosis) there is still a need for additional research dollars into this arena.
