International Scoliosis Awareness Month takes place yearly with the goal of highlighting the growing need for education, early detection and awareness to the public about scoliosis and its prevalence within the community.
A key focus of Awareness Month is early detection and the effectiveness of bracing as early, non-operative care. Research has shown that early detection delivers more favorable prognoses for those with scoliosis.
Screening our children is imperative so that they can grow up with strong and healthy spine’s. It’s also important that we understand that adults too can develop scoliosis, and there are also treatment options available to them.
If you have any questions about scoliosis, or think that you or a loved one may be at risk of having scoliosis and would benefit from an assessment, please feel free to contact us.
