June is Scoliosis Awareness Month

Article - June 2023 ScoliosisAs clinicians who work with scoliosis patients will no doubt be aware, June is recognised around the world as Scoliosis Awareness Month.

It is estimated that one out of every six children with scoliosis will require 'active treatment' to correct the curvature of their spine. The prevention of serious problems in adolescence and adulthood depends in large part on diagnosis the condition as early as possible; this is one of the major objectives of Scoliosis Awareness Month.

The way in which scoliosis is treated depends on numerous factors, including its type, severity and how likely it is predicted to progress as time goes on. Many clinicians working in the field are only just becoming aware of how dynamic compression can play a key role in treatment plans, helping to limit curvature progressions while also relieving the pain and discomfort that many patients experience.

This union of fabrics ensures that the garments are superbly comfortable to wear, permitting the natural movements of the patient and encouraging both motor learning and muscle activation. The garments are designed with bespoke reinforcement panels that are accurately measured and implemented to meet the unique requirements of each patient.
