Scoliosis Treatment

Scoliosis is a progressive lateral (sideways) curvature of the spine. It is most often first detected in childhood or early adolescence. The most common type of Scoliosis is called ‘Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis’.

    First Chiropractic is proud to be a Scolicare Affiliate Clinic

    First Chiropractic is a certified provider of ScoliBrace

    Our practice is a Scolicare affiliate clinic and provides our Scoliosis patients with the state-of-the-art mirror image scoliosis brace.

    This unique bracing method is a three dimensional, customised brace using 3D scanner technology which allows us to fit the unique needs and measurements of the patient. The result is a hard brace that positions the patient’s body and spine in an over-corrected or mirror image position. This technology provides a super corrective effect when the brace is worn.

    The custom made brace opens and closes at the front making it easy to wear and remove without assistance.

    If your child has been diagnosed with Scoliosis, please feel free to give us a call for advice and support.
