We are leaders in Scoliosis treatment
Our Adelaide Clinic is dedicated to delivering the best non-surgical treatment options for children and adults through a commitment to best practice and patient centred care.
Indepth assessment & accurate diagnosis with tailored treatment approaches, backed by research
Team approach to co-managed care, involving allied health, GPs, and surgeons where needed
Qualified and dedicated Clinicians delivering the most up-to-date recommendations to patients
High level of ongoing care and support to patients and carers throughout the treatment journey
Treatments best suited to age, stage, and type of scoliosis or kyphosis
Our Adelaide scoliosis clinic in South Australia offers a unique bracing system that creates fully customised spinal braces for patients with scoliosis and kyphosis.
To achieve a truly custom fit and 3D approach, patients are scanned with a lightweight, hi-tech 3D scanner and a scoliosis scanning App created by ScoliCare. A custom 3D brace, based on measurements accurate to the millimeter, is then crafted by our experienced design team.
Our unique bracing system offers treatment solutions for a wide range of curve sizes, ages and conditions. Bracing options include:
- Infants and young children with scoliosis
- Adolescents with scoliosis
- Night time only bracing for small curves
- Adults with scoliosis originating in adolescence or developing later in life (De Novo scoliosis)
Scoliosis specific exercise programs can play an important role to:
- Slow down curve progression
- Improve muscular balance and spinal mobility
- Improve posture and appearance
- Help with pain relief
- Increase vital capacity
These specific exercise programs can help to stop small scoliosis curves from progressing, and in larger curves it can be used as an important adjunct to bracing for best results.
ScoliCare Clinicians are trained in advanced, internationally recognised exercise techniques including “SEAS” and “Schroth”, and they are active in research and lecturing to other health professionals on the topic of scoliosis treatments.
Our Clinicians are extensively trained with postgraduate studies in
world-leading scoliosis treatment methods
