SpineCor Dynamic Scoliosis Brace
While SpineCor is called a scoliosis brace, it’s really more like a rehabilitation device that you wear than it is a brace. A brace is something that holds your body stiffly in place, but SpineCor is completely different. It’s made of elastic bands that wrap around the body in different configurations based on your curve pattern. So while you are in it, you can move whatever direction you like but it gives your body a gentle reminder telling it “No, go this way, go this way.” and that is into the direction of correction. This helps create “muscle memory” in that direction and helps strengthen the specific weakened muscles of the trunk to help reduce the scoliosis curves.
Schroth Method Scoliosis-Specific Exercises
The Schroth Method of Scoliosis-Specific Exercise is designed to help improve curves by reducing the postural collapse that occurs when gravity takes advantage of the imbalances in the spine caused by scoliosis. Generalized or exercises done equally on both the right and left sides can be a problem for your scoliosis. Click the above Link to Learn More. In our Schroth classes, you will learn the specific exercises you need to help improve strength in the weakened muscles in your back and core.
Atlas Orthogonal Therapy
Often times scoliosis can cause other areas of the body to mal-adapt to the compensate for the curves, which can become secondary issues that can drive your curves to progress. One area, in particular, can be especially problematic is the upper cervical spine. Learn how Atlas Orthogonal, a non-force adjustive technique can help can help restore the normal function and reduce the functional adaptations that can aggravate your scoliosis.

Active Release Technique For Scoliosis
Active Release Techniques (ART) is a highly specific myofascial therapy that can be used to release tissues that have adaptively shortened as a result of your scoliosis. Adaptive shortening of tissues, usually found in the muscles on the concave sides of the curves can limit motion and reduce your ability to improve your scoliosis if they are not taken care of first.

Your Feet can also impact your scoliosis to cause it to get worse over time. If you have a flat foot on one or both sides the drop of your arch as you walk can cause your knee and hip to rotate inward as you step. This rotation in the leg can then result in torsion of your hips, which has the potential to worsen your scoliosis and if present needs to be addressed to stop the distortion form aggravating your curves. One way of stopping this is with Custom Orthotics which are molded with your foot in a corrected neutral position so that it comfortably keep yours from pronating to stop the cascade of adaptations that can aggravate your scoliosis.
