Case 92: Female, 7 years old
Today, we are sharing a special case we saw early in the year before the COVID-19 pandemic struck. This 7-year-old girl with some developmental delays flew over from the Philippines together with her parents to get treatment for her scoliosis.
We were able to fit her into a ScolioAlign™ Brace and underwent a few days of treatment before they headed back home to continue their home therapy with Dr Kevin Lau's guidance.
Their initial plan was to come back in a month to resume her treatment, but due to the pandemic and the restrictions with in-flight travels, this has not been possible. Dr Kevin continued with email support, helping them get through the home therapy with the help of a local physiotherapist.
6 months have passed now and we recently recommended an x-ray to review her progress and see how she was growing. The x-rays revealed her scoliosis went down from 80 degrees to 65 degrees significantly! Furthermore, the parents took a picture of her back, which we then compared to the one taken at our clinic 6 months prior and we saw the lower hump, brought about by scoliosis, has improved and she is not hunching as much as before.
Congratulations on the wonderful achievement and for allowing us to share your inspiring story during these difficult times!
Case 91: Female, 15 years old
Today's case is of a 15-year-old girl who saw significant improvements during the 2-month lockdown initiated earlier in the year. In the past years, she was finding it hard to commit to the recommended home exercises and the wearing of the ScolioAlign™ 3D Brace due to school and extracurricular activities.
While we were able to see the curve improve slightly from 2018 to 2019, we saw a significant improvement in her scoliosis and posture when the lockdown was initiated and she was able to commit more to her treatment at home. When we saw her again, we saw that the hips are evening up and her rib hump was flatter.
While we acknowledge that kids in Singapore have a tough schedule, these scoliosis results are possible when effort and diligence are excised. All we ask is that you follow Dr Kevin Lau advice for a short period to see results.
Case 90: Male, 20 years old
Today's x-ray and posture review is from a 20-year-old Singaporean boy who is currently doing NS (National Service) while undergoing treatment for his scoliosis. Even though his spine has reached skeletal maturity we were able to reduce the curve and improve how it looked visually.
When treating a condition like scoliosis it is important to understand it is a 3-dimensional condition which involves not just a sideways bend of the spine but rotation as well. We were able to reduce his rib hump and shift the spine more central to his body as noticed in the forward bending picture.
There are 2 options for scoliosis wait for it to deteriorate till it requires surgery or you can be proactive and improve it before it worsens non-surgically. The chose is always yours.
Case 89: Female, 44 years old
Today's x-ray review was with a 44-year-old patient. While a majority of scoliosis patients who come in are adolescents. We also do recommend treatment for scoliosis adult patients where they can prevent the curve from worsening and halt the degeneration of the spine.
Last 6 months she was coming once a week for her scoliosis therapy along with doing her prescribed exercises and wearing the ScolioAlign brace. Adults only need to wear the brace 3-4 hours for it to be effective and most can even sleep with it so it does not affect their daily lives.
We are happy to report her scoliosis which started at 52 degrees and was causing her shoulder and back pain. After 6 months it is now only 42 degrees and her discomforts are improved especially during work where she sits most of the day.
It is a common misconception that scoliosis cannot be treated even when you're older. Dr Kevin Lau's ScoliLife program is suitable for all ages!
Case 88: Male, 13 years old
This week we did a review for a 13-year-old boy who initially came in with a 45-degree curve and his specialist in the hospital monitoring him recommended surgery. The parents were concerned and looked for alternatives and found Dr Kevin Lau's Scoliosis & Spine Correction Clinic to seek a second opinion.
The boy started his 3-month program for non-surgical scoliosis program which involved 1-hour sessions once a week for 3 months along with wearing a ScolioAlign™ 3D Brace and home exercises designed by Dr Kevin Lau.
Post-x-rays were amazing as scoliosis had reduced from the initial 45 degrees to 25 degrees measured by the specialist in the hospital. We are happy with the change and while not everyone will have such an amazing result there is hope if you want to avoid spinal surgery.
Case 87: Female, 12 years old
Earlier in the week, we shared an email from an overseas patient from Thailand who just did their x-rays in Bangkok and emailed them to Dr Kevin Lau for a 6 month follow up review. Due to the pandemic and the restriction of flights we did a skype consultation and shared the x-ray results achieved during their 6 months doing her scoliosis home therapy taught by Dr Kevin Lau.
The 12-year-old patients x-rays revealed her scoliosis had reduced from 52 degrees to 41 degrees and her posture had and back had visually improved. The Thai specialist also commented he was surprised to see such a good improvement. We commend her on achieving such amazing results during this difficult period and look forward to more improvements in future reviews!
Yes, there is a solution to avoid scoliosis surgery while most medical text would say surgery is the only treatment. With the right tools and knowledge, anyone of any age can improve their scoliosis condition. Scoliosis health is in your hands!
Case 86: Male, 16 years old
2 weeks ago we posted the postural improvements and how a 16-year-old boys hunch improved drastically visually. The hospital surgeon who was monitoring his case while he went through his treatment with us measured his scoliosis and was surprised it reduced by 10 degrees. This is after it steadily increasing to 77 degrees over the years.
Even at his current 67 degrees, there will be a lot of work to do the get more improvements but we are confident to be able to get more as he continues his treatments with Dr Kevin Lau.
If you are looking to avoid scoliosis surgery look for a doctor with a good track record of past results. Unfortunately, not all scoliosis treatments are created equal and could mean wasting precious time in preventing scoliosis from getting worse.
Case 85: Male, 16 years old
Happy to share good news during these difficult times due to the pandemic. After 2 months of lockdown, we have resumed our clinic and continued scoliosis treatments for our patients. We have just done a follow-up x-ray and posture image for a 16-year-old boy and the results have been amazing. Before treatment he had a 77 degrees lumbar scoliosis now after 3 months it is 67 degrees. The improvements also show in his posture and body photos.
The parents were happy to report that the hospital specialist who normally recommended surgery every 3 months was surprised by the results and has now put him on 6 monthly reviews rather than recommending surgery. This is the first time it has ever happened in the 5 years going to this doctor.
Dr Kevin Lau is committed to the idea that health is in your hands and to give you all the tools needed to get results even if it means 2 months of home treatments. We congratulate the young boy for using the ScolioAlign™ brace and completing his home treatments diligently during this lockdown period!
Case 84: Female, 12 years old
Even during these uncertain times, it's always great to share the good news. Today is a follow up from my patient who came over to Singapore from France for scoliosis treatment 6 months ago. We had highlighted her in case #71, where she achieved amazing results just after 5 days of doing the intensive scoliosis treatment along with getting the ScolioAlign 3D brace by Dr Kevin Lau.
Due to travel restrictions because of Covid-19 virus, her father arranged a follow-up skype consultation to discuss his daughters latest x-ray and progress. The results revealed she not only stopped her curve from increasing during the 6 months but also improved her scoliosis too. Her x-ray results showed her upper curve went from 35 degrees to 25 degrees. While her lower curve went from 30 degrees to 20 degrees!
Shown here is the picture of her back taken by her dad comparing the one before she started treatment. Visually her shoulders are more level and her rib hump on the right shoulder is not protruding as much. Her spine was deviating to the right before treatment but now she is more centred and her hips are more balanced.
Case 83: Female, 16 years old
The second week of lockdown in Singapore and we would like to share a positive result of one of our recent patients. She is a 16-year-old girl who had come to us 2 years ago as her scoliosis was progressing and worsening at each hospital check-up every 6 months.
Her mother was concerned and found Dr Kevin Lau on google and came in hoping to manage her daughters condition rather than let it go from bad to worst. She has completed a round of 3 months and the results were positive with her scoliosis reducing from 27 degrees to 17 degrees.
She was able to maintain her correction for 2 years and now that her spine has reached skeletal maturity has no more risk of further worsening. Visually her body is more balanced in her shoulder and hips. We congratulate her hard work and wish her the best as she manages her condition herself. The key to any condition is making sure you're empowered to take care of yourself rather than rely on anyone.
Case 82: Female, 10 years old
Today's case is from a 10-year-old girl who had a severe scoliosis of 60 degrees even on the first x-ray exam. The specialist at the hospital recommended surgery but the mother wanted a second opinion rather than heading straight into spinal surgery.
We designed a ScolioAlign Brace for her which is the only brace suitable for curves over 50 degrees. And she started treatment to stabilise and strengthen her spine at our clinic 2 times a week.
The x-ray after was taken at her review with the hospital and happy to report her scoliosis has reduced from 60 degrees to 53! While her scoliosis was high when she started she started treatment at a young age when her spine is still flexible.
Case 81: Female, 11 years old
Just received an update from a mother who did their annual review at KK hospital for their 11-year-old daughter's scoliosis. She couldn't get a copy of the xrays but was able to take a photo from the specialist computer monitor. Two x-rays are shown, one taken on the 8th July 2019 and the latest one taken on 31st January 2020. Her scoliosis went from 20 degrees to 1 degree in the top of her spine (thoracic) and from 13 degrees to 6 degrees on the bottom curve (lumbar). In 5 months her spine is cleared of scoliosis!
All measurements were done by the attending specialist in the hospital. As can be seen, the best results are when parents are proactive and seek treatment while the curve is still mild and easier to manage.
Unfortunately, a majority of cases I see on a regular basis are cases who have been recommended surgery looking for alternatives. Any signs of scoliosis should start our non-surgical scoliosis treatment as soon as possible for the best outcome.
We thank the mother for letting us use her daughters xrays!
Case 80: Female, 14 years old
Today is a 14-year-old girl who's mum was concerned after the specialist said if her curve worsens on the next review surgery might be suggested. When she heard this she went online and found Dr Kevin Lau's non-surgical scoliosis treatment.
A ScolioAlign™ 3D brace was fabricated for her and she underwent 3 months of weekly therapy in the clinic. Before she started treatment her scoliosis was 36 degrees in the upper curve and 30 degrees in the lower curve. After just 3 months her scoliosis measured 30 degrees on the upper curve and 21 degrees in the lower curve. Finally, after years of her scoliosis progressing, it has started to improve.
A proactive approach is best when tackling scoliosis. Too many patients wait till the curve keeps worsening till something is done about it. Treating scoliosis early and with an experienced doctor is key to success.
Case 79: Female, 16 years old
Another happy parent of a 16-year-old girl who completed twice a week treatment over a 3 months period. Initially, the girl had scoliosis of 28 degrees on top and 31 degrees in the lower spine. Post x-ray taken at her annual hospital check-up showed that scoliosis had improved significantly from 20 degrees on top and 15 degrees below. That's a 50 percent reduction of her scoliosis!
She was given home exercises which she has done every day. As well as having a ScolioAlign™ Brace made for her to wear at home.
We congratulate her on achieving such an amazing result and for giving hope to the many scoliosis sufferers who hope to also correct their scoliosis without surgery.
Case 78: Female, 15 years old
This post x-ray review shows a 15-year-old girl who came in with lumbar scoliosis which was already recommended surgery from the hospital overlooking at her case. The parents did their own research and found Dr. Kevin Lau's non-surgical approach.
A ScolioAlign™ 3D Brace and weekly treatment in the clinic was recommended for 3 months. The above x-ray was taken in the hospital monitoring her case and the specialist was surprised that he didn't need to recommend surgery anymore!
Her scoliosis had reduced from 42 degrees to 28 degrees in 3 months! This result could only have been due to the girl being hard working and diligent with the scoliosis exercises along with using the brace. If you have already tried the brace recommended in the hospital or told to wait-and-see understand that there are better alternatives!
Case 77: Female, 15 years old
A 15 year old girl who's specialist in the hospital told her that surgery was inevitable and that she would need it in 6 months on her next review. Well the review came and we are happy to report her scoliosis went from 40 plus to under 30 degrees now.
The orthopaedic doctor was lost for words at the review and the mother was so happy that they were able to avoid the surgery. As can be seen in the postural before and after, her waist is more even and the right pelvis is not protruding out as much. The results were achieved in a space of 3 months and she was hard working doing her exercises and wearing the ScolioAlign™ 3D brace regularly.
Case 76: Female, 24 years old
Good results for a 24-year-old patient who had a 56-degree curve. For years she had been doing yoga and group classes for exercises to help with her pain and discomfort but the scoliosis was not improving. In fact, it was steadily worsening over the years by 1 degree per year.
As she had done a few treatments in the past in Malaysia when she was younger she was cautious about the non-surgical treatment offered by Dr Kevin Lau. She initially started the program with only 12 sessions and wanted to be monitored by her orthopedic doctor. After fabricating her the ScolioAlign brace and doing the 12 sessions she went back to the specialist for an x-ray.
To the doctor and her surprise, her scoliosis had improved from 56 degrees to 49 degrees. When looking at the x-rays you can see the scoliosis is more centered and straighter. Her neck is in better alignment and not tilted over to one side. Aesthetically her back looks better and the pain she used to feel improved too. She continued further with the recommended number of sessions after the positive results with Dr Kevin Lau.
Case 75: Female, 14 years old
This is a 14 year old girl who completed 24 sessions of the ScolioLife program with Dr Kevin Lau. The program consisted of 1 time a week treatment sessions in the clinic along with 15 min of home exercises. She was also made a ScolioAlign™ brace which is a 3D over corrective brace.
You can see the aesthetic changes to her body after the treatment which include balanced shoulders and hips. Her body was initially swaying to the right due to the C shape scoliosis. Overall her posture has improved as the exercises also corrected the forward head and slouched shoulders.
Overall a great result and we congratulate her on her efforts for achieving such amazing results!
Case 74: Female, 8 years old
A great way to start the new year, today I received an email from a patient from Nepal whos 8-year-old daughter came to see us for the intensive scoliosis treatment 3 years ago. They had recently done an x-ray in Nepal and wanted me to compare the results. When she first came to see us her S-shaped scoliosis had an upper curve of 65 degrees and a lower curve of 70 degrees. The latest x-rays showed that both curves improved so that the upper was now 39 degrees and the lower is 44 degrees!
Both are a significant reduction in her scoliosis and we are very impressed with the x-rays she shared with us. Over the 3 years, the young girl was doing the home scoliosis exercises recommended and wearing the ScolioAlign™ Brace by Dr Kevin Lau.
We are happy that the 5 days intensive scoliosis program done 3 years ago has given them the tools and knowledge to improve their scoliosis back home. Health is in Your Hands!
Case 73: Female, 15 years old
Another fantastic post-treatment results for a Singaporean 15 year old girl. Her scoliosis after 3 months of using the ScolioAlign brace and the scoliosis program by Dr Kevin Lau went from 45 degrees to 25 degrees!
The amazing thing is that her specialist monitoring her case in the hospital told her nothing except surgery can be done for her case and anything else would be a waste of time. Well I guess we proved them wrong.
She was diligent with the home exercises as well as putting on the ScolioAlign brace every day. For that, we commend her for her hard work as her results speak for themselves.
Case 72: Female, 15 years old
Fantastic results spanning 3 years of treatment for this 15 year old Singaporean girl who did the scoliosis program and ScolioAlign 3D brace with Dr Kevin Lau. She started at the age of 13 when the scoliosis was 30 degrees. She was treated initially 2 time as week for 3 months. After the positive results after 3 months, the curve reduced to 17 degrees and due to school she was reduced to once a week treatments along with using the ScolioAlign 3D brace and exercises at home.
The latest x-ray taking in 2019 showed that the curve continued to improve to 10 degrees. Now she doesn't have scoliosis as the spine is within normal range! We congratulate her on the amazing achievement and for putting in the hard work and effort required to achieve such an amazing result.
Thank you also to the parents for allowing us to share the wonderful results.
Case 71: Female, 12 years old
Amazing results where you can see the body looking more balanced and aligned. Can you guess how long apart were these before and after photos were taken? Would you believe only 5 days apart!
This is the result of a 12 year old girl from France who came over to Singapore for our 5 days intensive scoliosis program. Each day consisted of 5 hours of scoliosis exercises and equipment which helped to realign and improve her scoliosis. During the 5 days we also made a ScolioAlign Brace so that she can continue to use it once she is back in France.
We congratulate her for the amazing results shown and commend the hard work she put in during the 5 days. We hope she continues to see further improvements over the following months back home in France and look forward to our next review in 6 months.
Case 70: Female, 25 years old
Follow up review for a 25 year old Singaporean lady after 12 months of using the ScolioAlign Brace and scoliosis exercises by Dr Kevin Lau. Before treatment her C shaped scoliosis was measured at 29 degrees. A follow up review involving an x-ray and a postural analysis was done after 12 months and the results are impressive. Her scoliosis now measures 21 degrees and the posture analysis shows her body is more centered and balance.
Before treatment her body was leaning to the right side of her body with the left hip protruding out. In the follow up x-rays it shows her body alignment improving and the waist is more symmetrical. Even though she has reached skeletal maturity, it is never too old to improve your scoliosis!
Case 69: Female, 10 years old
Fantastic results for my patient from India who we see once a year for the last 3 years. When she first came to us at 10 years old her scoliosis was already 36 degrees. She initially completed the 5 days intensive program and customize a ScolioAlign Brace. She was also shown her scoliosis exercises for when she went back home which she had been diligently doing.
The 2nd year x-ray review her scoliosis went down to 19 degrees and now after 3 years it is less than 5 degrees! We are happy for her results and commend her on the hard work she puts in when she is here at the clinic and importantly when she goes back home.
Case 68: Female, 17 years old
Results of a 17 year old Chinese girl who completed the 3 month local program. Her curvature was 45 degrees and her bone already reached skeletal maturity. A ScolioAlign™ 3D brace and home exercises we given to her to do at home on top of the once a week therapies in the clinic.
The mum was concerned as she was not very diligent with doing her home exercises or putting on the brace. However we saw a reduction in her scoliosis degree which after care is now 39 degrees.
Most importantly her posture and look of her back improved. Her shoulders look more balanced, her body is not leaning to the right as much and her hips are more even. This has motivated her to continue the treatment and we hope the next results x-ray and pictures will be better with her new found motivation.
Case 67: Female, 25 years old
Just received a follow up email from my patient from my 25 year old patient from the Philippines. She had completed the 5 days intensive program and it has been 6 months since we saw her.
She wrote: "I am actually quite shocked to see my back flatter. I've never seen it this straight. And before I took the photo I was actually kinda worried because I haven’t been consistently exercising this past few weeks due to my hectic schedule. But seeing the results after everything that I did to change my lifestyle is just amazing. I just can’t thank you enough doc for making me believe that i could heal my spine naturally. Here’s a better look at the comparison. I just can’t believe my eyes!!! This is just a month apart!"
We are happy to see such amazing results and thank you for your trust in Dr Kevin Lau treatment. Most specialist say there is nothing you can do when your an adult with scoliosis but you have proven them all wrong.
Case 66: Female, 11 years old
After a week of training out of Singapore happy to report another wonderful result from one of my local patient I have seen for 2 years now. She was only 11 when she came in to see me with 45 degrees curve in the lower back. She did the ScolioLife™ System of scoliosis treatment which included scoliosis exercises and ScolioAlign™ 3D brace by Dr Kevin Lau.
The following xray is the latest and the result have been outstanding. Her scoliosis is now only 25 degrees even after growing quickly over the period. We have attached both the x-ray results and posture images which show the shoulders are more balanced, hips are more even and body is more centered.
While she has not reached skeletal maturity we hope to see continued improvements for her scoliosis. Keep up the hard work and we hope your result help to inspire others to treat their scoliosis non-surgically too!
Case 65: Female, 23 years old
A common misconception is that scoliosis therapy is only suitable for kids who have not reach skeletal maturity. This is not true as can be seen in this before and after results. This Singaporean lady is 23 years old who we made a ScolioAlign 3D brace along with doing the ScolioLife Therapy.
Her scoliosis was C shaped and in the 40 degrees. After 6 months the posture image shows her body is more centered, shoulders are more aligned and waist more balanced than before.
It is never too late to correct your scoliosis and those that do are only waiting for surgery down the road. Be proactive and correct your scoliosis as early as possible.
Case 64: Female, 25 years old
The follow up review is from a client from the Philippines who came 3 month ago for the 5 days intensive scoliosis treatment. She was a 25 year old woman who only found out about her scoliosis when she was an adult. Back home she had tried exercises, physiotherapy as well as other local treatments but nothing seemed to help. X-rays taken before she arrived revealed a severe scoliosis of 89 degrees!
Dr Kevin Lau explained that 5 days would probably be not enough time for any substantial changes to her scoliosis. But the knowledge gained over the 5 days should allow her to continue the therapy once she returned home. A ScolioAlign™ 3D brace, customised exercises and detailed nutritional plan was recommended to her during the 5 days of therapy.
Three months after the initial treatment in Singapore she has been doing her treatment back home and diligently wearing her ScolioAlign™ 3D brace. She took a picture or her back and sent it to Dr Kevin Lau and the results were amazing as can be seen. The shoulders are now more balanced and the rib hump is reduced making her back better aesthetically.
We commend her for the hard work she put in and not letting even a severe curve of 89 degrees make her lose hope. Health is in your hands!
Case 63: Female, 13 years old
Great results from a local Singaporean 13 year old girl who just completed 24 sessions of the Scoliosis Program. Her curve was 52 degrees and now reading 42 in only 3 months. The posture images taken shows the hips being more level and balanced and shoulder looking more symmetrical. Rotation and twisting of the spine is an important aspect when correcting scoliosis non-surgically.
She was fitted a ScolioAlign 3D brace which is the only brace suitable for curves over 40 degrees. There is a misconception that only surgery is available for those with high degrees. Getting the right customised treatment is essential for scoliosis as all curves are unique.
Case 62: Female, 10 years old
Todays postural assessment shows a young girl who we started treating when she was just 10 years old. She initially had a S shaped scoliosis which was 25 degrees in the top of the spine and 35 degrees in her lower back. Her older sister had already done the standard Boston brace which lead to eventually undergoing operation for scoliosis the previous year The parents were committed to prevent the younger daughter from going through surgery. That why she brought her daughter to try Dr Kevin Lau's non-surgical scoliosis treatment.
Over the years she was regularly reviewed while using the scoliosis therapy and the ScolioAlign 3D brace worn at night. Her scoliosis improved at each 6 monthly review with the hospital. Not only that as seen in the before and after she experienced a lot of growth spurt which we were able to control her scoliosis and prevent it from worsening. Last x-ray showed her scoliosis is now 19 degrees in the upper back and 26 degrees in the lower back. We are confident that she will avoid surgery once she reaches maturity.
Scoliosis most likely will progress during periods of rapid growth and in these circumstances correction while important should be secondary to stabilizing the scoliosis. We thank the parents for their trust and for allowing us to use their story to help others!
Case 61: Male, 13 years old
Today's results is a 13 year old American boy studying in an international school in Singapore. The mother had noticed his posture was hunched and he complained of pain after playing soccer.
Upon the first check up with Dr Kevin Lau, the x-rays showed a mild scoliosis and his body leaning to the left side. He was given treatment and exercises to address his poor posture and scoliosis. No brace was recommended as his curve was mild and we try not to interfere with his daily activities.
Post x-rays showed his scoliosis is not there anymore and is more centered. What can't be seen in the x-rays results is his posture improved and he is standing straight without hunching his shoulders or complaining of pain after soccer.
Addressing scoliosis early is key when it comes to better chances of success. When a person's scoliosis gets more severe, it get harder to treat.
Case 60: Female, 12 years old
This 12 year old Singaporean girl came with a progressive scoliosis which was worsening each year. At 25 degrees before treatment with us we were able to reduce her scoliosis to below 20 degrees in 24 sessions!
On top of a reduction of the scoliosis, amazing aesthetic improvement of her back can also be seen and documented in the picture seen. Her posture is better, shoulders more level, hips are more balanced and not protruding on one side.
Congratulations on achieving such an amazing result.
Case 59: Female, 11 years old
This is a 11 year old Singaporean girl who underwent 3 months of therapy with Dr Kevin Lau. A ScolioAlign 3D brace along with therapy done in the clinic once a week was her plan of action. She was also diligently doing her exercises directed and customised for her to do at home.
With a comprehensive treatment plan we were effective in reducing her lumbar scoliosis from 40 degrees to 28 degrees over the short period. Visible improvements was also seen in her posture and symmetry of her body. We commend her hard work and effort on achieving such an amazing result.
Case 58: Female, 13 years old
This 13 year old girl came to our clinic 2 years ago. Her curve when she first started was already 45 degrees at 10 years old with the hospital doctor recommending surgery. Her parents wanted to look for a non-surgical option before trying something invasive. Dr Kevin Lau designed a ScolioAlign 3D Brace for her and she started the scoliosis program.
Over 2 years of growth we were able to stabilize her curves. Visual improvements can be seen such as the forward head posture, uneven shoulders and protruding hip. While at 13 she still has a risk of scoliosis progression but with the right treatment we hope to keep her away from spinal surgery.
Congrats on the hard work and commitment shown so far and thank you for letting us share the wonderful results!
Case 57: Female, 13 years old
Fantastic results from a 13 year old patient of mine who just did her 1 year follow up after doing the brace with Dr Kevin Lau. In the mum's own word: "The specialist at the hospital was surprised at the correction achieved even though he said there was nothing that can correct scoliosis except for surgery! We are blessed to have found Dr Kevin Lau's treatment."
Yes there is a lot of misconception about scoliosis and the different options available. Yes there are effective non-surgical treatments which can help avoid surgery for scoliosis.
Case 56: Female, 17 years old
Great aesthetic improvement and balance for this Singaporean girls spine. She initially came in with a C shaped scoliosis which lead to an obvious rib hump on the right side of her body. Non-surgical treatment with Dr Kevin Lau focused on bringing the spine more center, reducing the rib humps as well as hip and shoulder imbalance.
As the premiere clinic for non-surgical scoliosis correction in Asia, Dr Kevin Lau has consistently achieved amazing results for his local and overseas patients. Get a free review of your x-rays to check if the treatment is suitable for you and start your journey to better spinal health today!
Case 55: Female, 17 years old
This Malaysian patient came to the clinic from Johor Bahru once a week for 3 months. Her curve was already 50 degrees "C" shaped scoliosis which caused her body to lean to the right. She was fitted with a ScolioAlign 3D brace by Dr Kevin Lau and prescribed scoliosis exercises to complete at home between her treatments.
Post x-rays were good reducing by 10 degrees. Her shoulders look more balanced and her body more centered. However higher curves are more difficult to treat and therefore takes longer so see more dramatic improvements. Keep up the hard work!
Case 54: Female, 16 years old
Today's result is of a 16 year old girl from Malaysia. She came to the clinic once a week having to deal with the traffic jam to and from Johor Bahru. However the results speak for themselves. Her scoliosis reduced by about 15 degrees with a rebalancing of her waist and hip levels.
Her posture is more balanced and aesthetically pleasing. She has reached bone maturity and while it is more difficult to achieve correction it does not mean its impossible. Congrats on your your results and for putting up with the 2-3 hour rides to Singapore each week! We are happy your hard work and dedication paid off.
Case 53: Female, 12 years old
Local 12 year old Singaporean girl after 5 months of therapy with us. Initially her hips were unevening with the right side protruding out. She had difficulty holding herself up into a good posture as a result was slouching whenever she was sitting or standing.
We tailored a program and designed a 3D brace that addressed her scoliosis as well as her poor posture and the results really speak for themselves! We congratulate this young girl for her commitment and dedication.
Case 52: Female, 15 years old
These postural images were taken 6 months apart of a 15 year old girl from Bangladesh. She had completed a 5 days intensive program at my clinic in in 2018 and was instructed her scoliosis treatment to complete once back home.
Happy to see she has been consistent with the exercises and devices recommended. Her posture showed a marked improvement, with the pelvic and higher right hip looking aesthetically better and more balanced. She was instructed to continue with the home therapy and follow up with an xray in another 6 months. Health is in your hands!
Case 51: Female, 15 years old
The goal of Dr Kevin Lau is not just to reduce scoliosis but to make it visually more balanced and aesthetically pleasing. Here is a 15 year old Singaporean girl who had been coming regularly to the clinic for 1 year. Before she started her hip was protruding on one side and waist looked uneven. Her posture was slouched with forward head and shoulders which ultimately affected her confidence.
Throughout her health journey with us we were able to see her grow into the confident young lady she is today! We thank her and her mum for allowing us to share her amazing pictures.
Case 50: Female, 13 years old
Great results for a 13 year old Indian girl who initially came to my clinic with 45 degrees S curve scoliosis in the top part of her spine. This caused a lot of imbalance in her body and she was leaning to the left. She was going through a lot of growth spurts over the 1 year period so it was not a particularly easy scoliosis to correct.
Now the curve is stabilised and under 40 degrees. Visibly her body is more centered and balanced. She has not reached skeletal maturity so she will continue to do her therapy and ScolioAlign 3D brace for another few years. However it's good to see such visible changes to keep her motivated. Thank you to her and her parents for letting us use her images.
Case 49: Female, 16 years old
Over the course of 3 years treating this patient and recently we did her latest x-ray review. When she first came to the clinic her thoracic curve was 27 degrees and the lumber was 25 degrees. She started a scoliosis program with the clinic along with doing a 3D brace by Dr Kevin Lau. Following year x-ray showed amazing with the thoracic curve now 18 degrees with the lumbar not considered scoliosis anymore.
Latest x-ray taken in January 2019 shows that her top curve is now 10 degrees and she does not have scoliosis anymore! Her results are a direct amount of effort she put into following the prescribed treatment plan and for that we applaud her for her success.
Don't accept anything but the best care possible.
Case 48: Female, 12 years old
Follow up results for a 12 year old patient from overseas, 6 months after doing their 5 days intensive program. She was able to follow through with the home program and continue the correction even though she went through growth spurts during the 6 months!
She was consistent with the home therapy and wore her brace diligently. Dr Kevin Lau offers scoliosis programs for local and overseas patients and specially tailored to the individuals scoliosis. No ones curve is the same so nor should the treatment.
Dr Lau is focused on long term solutions and not quick temporary fixes. For honest and reliable care call us for a review today.
Case 47: Female,17 years old
Another fantastic result from a Singaporean girl who just recently did her post treatment x-ray. Results showed her scoliosis reduced from 45 degrees to 35 degrees in 3 months. Her parents were concerned as hospital specialist recommended the possibility of surgery at the next review.
Let's hope to see further improvements as she continues with the treatment. Congrats on your achievement!
Case 46: Female, 9 years old
Amazing results for a 9 years old girl from Vietnam who came for 5 days intensive scoliosis treatment. Before coming to Singapore the mother had taken an x-ray of her daughter curve and it showed the curve increased by 10 degrees in 6 months. As her scoliosis was only 18 degrees, Dr Kevin Lau recommend just doing the 5 days therapy without bracing.
Following the 5 days treatment using Dr Lau's ScolioLife System, her curve went from 18 degrees to 5 degree! It's important to understand that early detection along with early intervention is key to avoiding bracing or surgery. Don't merely wait to see if your scoliosis is mild.
She was taught everything she needed to do once back home to continue the therapy home. Which is an important aspect and the main reason why Dr Lau believes in the "Health In Your Hands" motto.
Case 45: Female, 12 years old
Simply amazing x-ray results. When I see a Boston Brace x-ray vs 3D Brace x-ray the in brace correction is simply better and superior in the 3D Brace. This is why Boston brace's best results is to prevent the curve while 3D Brace can potentially reduce the scoliosis! Don't waste your time with an older style of brace and get the latest in bracing technology today. Exclusively available in Scoliosis & Spine Correction Clinic and fitted personally by Dr Kevin Lau.
Dr Kevin Lau also offers non-bracing and non-surgical options for scoliosis treatment.
Case 44: Female, 12 years old
Just received an follow up email from a 12 year old female patient from the Philippines who just did her xrays after 3 months of home treatment following her 5 days intensive scoliosis program with us. She was instructed to wear the 3D Brace and follow her scoliosis exercises for 3 months.
Happy to report the latest x-ray showed an amazing result. Before coming to Singapore her scoliosis was measuring at 41 degrees on the top curve and 45 degrees on the bottom curve. Now her scoliosis is measuring at 20 degrees at the top and 30 degrees on the bottom!
Thank you for letting us share your results and keep up the hard work. Looking forward to getting more good news in the future too.
Case 43: Female, 11 years old
Just received a follow up from a USA patient who's currently living in Thailand. 3 months ago they had come for 5 days intensive treatment for his 11 year old daughter. Following the treatment they were instructed to continue back home the exercises as well as the 3D Brace and to do a follow up x-ray in 3 months for me to review.
Happy to reveal that the latest x-ray shows her scoliosis is now 18 degrees, down from 35 degrees before treatment with Dr Kevin Lau! Another amazing result which also shows the hard work and effort she took in following through with what was recommended.
Case 42: Female, 24 years old
This week we bring you another great result for a 24 year old female who came for scoliosis treatment. She was diligently coming during her lunch break from raffles place and after 3 months x-rays showed her "C" shaped scoliosis reduced form 70 degrees to 58 degrees! This was done without surgery of bracing as well.
Dr Kevin Lau tailors each individual treatment to suit the lifestyle of the person. Even if your a busy student or working full time. Avoiding spinal surgery is possible under the right care and is ultimately better in the long term. As surgery only addresses the aesthetic nature and does not improve the person's quality of life.
Being the leading non-surgical scoliosis clinic in Singapore. We are proud to see results like this on a daily basis. Dr Kevin Lau makes the so called impossible... possible!
Case 41: Female, 15 years old
Follow up x-ray today is from a 15 year old Singaporean girl. She started treatment early in 2017 and has seen steady improvements every 6 months. She has been coming once a week and wearing the 3D Brace at night while doing her exercises at home. Lower lumbar curve started around 37 degrees before coming to Dr Kevin Lau. Latest x-rays now show it is 15 degrees!
Improvements like this is not an exception but rather the rule as Dr Kevin Lau uses the best methods of non-surgical scoliosis treatment available for patients. Everyone's scoliosis is different so everyone's care needs to be customised too! Thank you to the mother for allowing us to use her daughters x-rays and share their amazing results.
Case 40: Female, 17 years old
The following before and after x-ray is from a 17 year old girl from Indonesia. She had done the 5 days intensive treatment and fabricated a brace customised by Dr Kevin Lau. Happy to receive her fantastic results one month after coming for the 5 days intensive treatment. Before she came to see me, her curve was at 45 degrees and a month back home, it progressed to 33 degrees. Some of the concerns my patients have asked was whether corrections were permanent even when they return home. The answer is yes!
In fact, correction should continue by following Dr Kevin's recommendation. Empowering our patients to take care of their scoliosis is the most important aspect of Dr Kevin Lau's treatment philosophy!
Case 39: Female, 17 years old
Impressive results for a 17 year old patient from overseas who had just finished a 5 days intensive treatment. Dr Kevin Lau customised her brace and taught her all her exercises which she was to complete when she went back home. 10 degrees reduction in 5 days is amazing. Good to see she is on the right path to better spinal health and ultimately independence.
Empowering patients with the right knowledge so they can take care of themselves is the utmost importance to treating scoliosis with Dr Kevin Lau. A person with scoliosis will most likely have it for life so it's always better as doctors to educate rather than making patients reliant on us.
Case 38: Female, 13 years old
Local Singaporean 13 year old girl just did her x-ray review after 24 session of treatment. She was diligent with her treatments as well as wearing her 3D Brace. Before treatment her thoracic curve was 35 degrees now after treatment it's 25!
Dr Kevin Lau's treatment is a unique treatment program which he has carefully selected some of the best scoliosis methods from around the world. Each patients program is individually customised to get the most for that person scoliosis.
Case 37: Female, 11 years old
Follow up of a 11 year old girl from Nepal who had come to see me for 5 days intensive and 3D Brace 1 year ago. The mother just took her latest x-rays and emailed them to me for review. So happy to report that her scoliosis reduced over the 1 year while doing her home program and using the 3D Brace. Especially after the mother told me her daughter had grown a lot during that period.
When she first came to see me last year her thoracic curve was 65 degrees now it's 55 degrees. Lumbar curve was more impressive reducing from 70 degrees to 45 degrees. Those who understand scoliosis know that the risk of worsening is highest when a child is during their growth spurts. We congratulate her on her great improvement and look forward to more to come with each review.
Case 36: Female, 13 years old
This case is of a Singaporean 13 year old girl. In Singapore most patients are checked yearly by the government organised Health Promotion Board. As such most kids with scoliosis are assigned a local hospital to check yearly.
Attached here is the before and after xrays from a patient who's scoliosis was getting worse with each check until coming to undergo treatment with Dr Kevin Lau. The before x-ray was taken before coming to try the non-surgical treatment with Dr Kevin Lau and the next check was taken after finishing the 3 month program. All measurements are taken by the resident doctor from the hospital and shows that the upper curve reduced from 40 to 31 degrees and lower curve from 37 to 27 degrees!
I advise scoliosis patients to not "Wait and see" as usually this means " Wait and see for surgery!". Take action while the scoliosis is mild and prevent it from getting worst as early as you can.
Case 35: Female, 14 years old
Fantastic results for one of my local Singaporean patients in her follow up review with a local hospital. Before and after x-ray was taken by a local hospital during their 6 monthly review with HPB (Health Promotion Board). During that period she was diligent with the non-surgical scoliosis treatment recommended to her by Dr Kevin Lau as well as wearing the 3D Brace daily. So happy with the results and glad all x-rays were taken by another hospital doctor.
This week I had an unsettling case where one of my patients mother was "told off" at by a specialist doctor in a local hospital for why she was using the methods Dr Kevin Lau such as the exercises and 3D Brace. He then recommended she get the Boston brace instead. A lot of doctors are not familiar with the benefits of Dr Kevin Lau's treatment and mistaken it as regular chiropractic. Dr Kevin Lau's methods are not standard chiropractic methods and he consistently gets non-surgical improvements with scoliosis as seen above.
It is important that all patients do sufficient research and understand that not all treatments are the same. Make an informed decision and take back control of their own health.
Case 34: Female, 12 years old
The latest x-ray results is a 1 year follow up of Case 21 of a 12 year old girl from India.
Her auntie is a professor at Singapore's top medical university and recommended her niece to come for treatment with Dr Kevin Lau. Happy to reveal that after 10 months since coming for her initial 5 days intensive treatment her scoliosis has improved further while completing the home therapy of exercises and wearing the 3D Brace!
We have to commend her for the dedication and effort she put in at home as the results are impressive. This time while in Singapore she underwent another 5 days intensive scoliosis treatment with Dr Kevin Lau and the after x-ray showed further improvement for her scoliosis. Now she is not even considered scoliotic at under 10 degrees! Even when the results are so good it's still recommended to be vigilant and continue with the prescribed home therapy once she goes back to India.
Case 33: Female, 13 years old
Dr Kevin Lau customises the 3D Brace personally for each patient so that the maximum in brace correction can be achieved as can be seen in these before and after x-rays. Here is an example of why this brace has the potential to not only prevent scoliosis but also correct it too.
Too often the boston brace and soft braces do not create enough shift in through the spine to allow it to change. These older models usually seen in most hospitals merely applied pressure against visible humps along the patient’s figure in effort to prevent any further curvature in the spine, compressing the trunk and potentially resulting in pain or even difficulty with breathing down the road.
However, new developments in brace technology have shown doctors that there is a way to help their patients achieve the maximum correction possible. It’s also led to the construction of the most comfortable braces that have ever been available on the market.
Case 32: Female, 28 years old
This before and after x-ray is from a 28 year old patient who had just finished 3 months of therapy along with using the 3D Brace. Correction is harder in adults than kids however not impossible as this shows. Her lumber scoliosis went from 40 degrees to 33 degrees after 3 months.
Dr Kevin Lau regularly treats patient of all ages. Utilising exercises, nutrition and 3D Brace in a tailored and individualised program. Were you told that bracing was only for youths? Yes, this is true for all the older style of braces such as spinecor, boston and scoliobrace. However the 3D Brace used by Dr Kevin Lau is the ONLY brace on the market which can be successfully used for adults to achieve good aesthetic improvements.
Your never too old to start taking care of your scoliosis!
Case 31: Female, 15 years old
Amazing results after 1 year of treatment with Dr Kevin Lau for this 15 year old girl. She started treatment when she was only 14 and after one year she has made good progress. This patient was diligently wearing the 3D Brace and doing her exercises to improve her scoliosis with fantastic results. One major concern patients typically have is understanding if the correction done by Dr Kevin Lau is if the results are temporary or permanent. Yes corrections are permanent!
I'm happy to also report that this patients specialist at KK hospital who monitors her case as well agreed that she should continue using our methods and care under Dr Kevin Lau. All too often we hear that the attending professors don't understand the treatment Dr Kevin Lau and how it is different to the many treatments around. This treatment is not chiropractic based or like pilates or Clear methods! But a new treatment which we call ScolioLife Treatment Method and like most treatments the commitment and dedication from the patient is the key to success and for that we congratulate her efforts!
Case 30: Female, 12 years old
Another fantastic result from a 12 year old local girl who just finished 3 months of scoliosis treatment. During that period she diligently came to the clinic 2 times a week as well as wearing a 3D Brace. Post treatment x-rays show the curvature went from 45 degrees to 29 degrees.
The parents made the decision to not go back to the surgeon as he keep recommending surgery at each follow up. As this was a personal decision of the parents I could not advise against this however usually I prefer patients even if they choose to not do surgery to continue their reviews with the hospital as these results can be documented and show the orthopedic doctor that non-surgical correction is possible!
Case 29: Female, 17 years old
This patient is a 17 year old girl from overseas and had undergone a 5 days intensive treatment. She had taken x-rays on the first day of treatment as well as the on the last so that the most accurate measurement could be taken of her progress. Over the 5 days we used scoliosis exercises and therapy along with making a 3D Brace for use when they go home. Initially the curvature was measured at 44 degrees in the lower back and after therapy it was 20 degrees!
Most importantly for Dr Kevin Lau is to empower her to learn to take care of her scoliosis when she goes back home and throughout the years ahead!
Case 28: Female, 12 years old
Amazing results for one of my patients with severe scoliosis. She was only 12 when she first came to me with a scoliosis of 90 degrees. The latest x-ray results with the report card from another hospital reviewing her case showed her scoliosis reduce to 82 degrees! While difficulty in treating scoliosis increase with increasing severity this is proof of the hard work and commitment she did under going the therapy and 3D Brace done at my clinic. Typically all specialist in the hospital would recommend surgery after 45 degrees as "nothing" can be done. However results such as hers and others in my clinic prove otherwise.
Thank you for the mother for allowing me to post her hospital report and x-rays
Case 27: Female, 11 years old
Great way to start the year off. This is the results from a 11 year old Singaporean girl with scoliosis after 3 months treatment. She did the 3D Brace along with coming 2 times to the clinic for therapy for 3 months. Her hard work and effort truly paid off with 41 degrees reduced to 27 degrees! It's shocking how some specialist still says there is nothing that can be done to correct scoliosis unless its operation. Dr Kevin Lau offers the latest non-surgical scoliosis treatment methods which combines treatments from around the world into what he calls ScolioLife. To learn more you can read his books or DVD. Health IS in your hands
Case 26: Female, 14 years old
This post treatment result is from a 14 year old Singaporean girl who did the 3 month treatment with us. Before the treatment with Dr Kevin Lau the specialist in the hospital measured her scoliosis at 41° on in the upper curve and 35° for the lower curve. The parents were told that surgery will probably be required and after hearing this they did some further research online about non-surgical treatments for scoliosis. That's when they booked a consultation with me. After 3 months with therapy and home exercises the xray's report came back and the results were great. Top curve reduced to 34° and lower curve is now 30°. The parents are happy as curves under 40 degrees don't require surgery!
Thank you to the child who committed and worked hard to get the improvement. Also to the parents for letting us share their excellent results with everyone.
Case 25: Female, 23 years old
Another fantastic result for a 23 year old girl who flew into Singapore for the 5 days intensive scoliosis treatment. We were able to fit her with a Genisngen brace and teach her everything she needed to do before going back to her home country. After the 5 days is merely the start of her real treatment as most of the commitment and work happens once she is home. For those who can't attend the treatments by Dr. Kevin Lau you still have the books and DVD as resources. Get empowered and take control of your condition!
Case 24: Female, 11 years old
Great results for my overseas patient from Inodnesia. This 11 year old girl came 6 months ago to get a 3D Brace fitted for her and today we did her follow up x-rays after 6 months. Results showed an improvement in her curvature in both the top and bottom curve. Being an over-corrective brace its main goal for the wearer is to get the maximum corrective effect. The middle x-ray is what the brace did to her spine when she wears it, pushing it into a near perfect alignment. However the most important value is when the brace is off and the resultant effects on the spine. Top curve went from 35 to 30 degrees and bottom curve from 42 to 33. She did not do the scoliosis treatment or any prescribed exercises which explains why the results are less. However any amount of correction is still something to celebrate. Typically I would recommend a 5 days intensive program for overseas patients along with them continuing the program back home with the brace for the optimal results.
Case 23: Male, 17 years old
This 17 year old Singaporean boy came to me after years of using a brace prescribed by his specialist in a local hospital didn't work. He had already tried a year of chiropractic, Pilates, physio and other treatments which could not stop his scoliosis from progressing. Understanding their frustration and fear of undergoing another failed treatment I recommended a short 3 month program. As with all clients under my care, before and after x-rays are taken to monitor the persons scoliosis. I was happy to report the curve started at 35 degrees in the lower back after 3 months is now 19 degrees. It is important to get the RIGHT treatment as early as possible to get the best possible outcome. Unfortunately a majority of patients come to Dr Kevin Lau only when they were told by their specialist that surgery was needed. While curves over 50 degrees still has a possibility of improvement, it is a lot harder to get correction. Therefore be proactive when you first get diagnosed with scoliosis and start treatment as early as possible.
Case 22: Female, 17 years old
Another fantastic result for my 17 year old scoliosis patient from India after the 5 days intensive scoliosis treatment. Her scoliosis was measured at 36 and 35 degrees before treatment. During the 5 days we fitted with a 3D brace and treated using the ScolioLife System which incorporated the most advanced and effective non-surgical methods from around the world and uniquely designed by Dr Kevin Lau. After the 5 days we achieved an amazing result of 26 and 25 degrees which can be seen in the before and after x-rays. Big thank you to the mother who was gracious enough to allow us to post her daughters fantastic results.
Case 21: Female, 12 years old
The latest before and after is from a 12 year old girl from India. Her auntie who is a professor to medical students in a top Singapore university met me months before to discuss her case. Prior to coming to see me they had seem many specialist in India but the curve kept increasing. They came over for 5 days intensive treatment and we also fitted her with an over-corrective 3D Brace. The results have been great with both top and bottom her curves reducing 50% in only 5 days! After this 5 days everything was taught for her to continue the treatment back home with a follow up review in 3 months.
While typically I would recommend intensive program for overseas patients understand that local patients during school holidays are also able to undergo this intensive program as well.
Case 20: Female, 14 years old
The following results is after 6 months treatment of a 14 year old girl. She was prescribed the 3D Brace and came for treatment with Dr Kevin Lau once a week. The results shown are out of brace with the top curve reducing from 29 to 20 degrees and bottom curve from 25 to 0 degrees! She was diligent with her scoliosis exercises prescribed and wore the over-corrective brace consistently. This highlights the importance of detecting and treating scoliosis early rather than waiting for it to be severe or worse needing surgery. Unfortunately the common recommendation for mild scoliosis is to "wait and see", an approach which I definitely don't agree with. Proactive measures should be recommended at all stages of scoliosis as prevention is easier to do.
Case 19: Female, 29 years old
This patient of mine was preparing for her wedding and wanted to look her best for the special day. Months before we started her on scoliosis therapy and fitted her with a 3D Brace which is the only over corrective brace suitable for adults as well as kids. The results show a good amount of shift and balancing to the body. We were able to reduce the rib hump and hip imbalance therefore making an improvement to how she looked visually. Whether it be for preparing for wedding or pregnancy or just for health you are never too old to start improving your scoliosis!
Case 18: Female, 14 years old
The above result this week is from a local 14 year old Singapore girl after one month of treatment with Dr Kevin Lau. The mother was so concerned as the brace and wait & see recommendation by the hospital only lead to her scoliosis getting worst with each hospital review. She was fitted with a 3D Brace and treated by Dr Kevin Lau using his unique non-surgical scoliosis treatment. The treatment method used by Dr Lau was developed through years of working with patients with different types of scoliosis and of all ages. No one method seems 100% effective but by taking a holistic approach to scoliosis we are able to get such amazing results.
Case 17: Female, 17 years old
Another great result from my 17 year old Singaporean patient. She was diagnosed with scoliosis last year and saw it progress before coming to see me. She was advised to wait and see but the mother decided a proactive approach was best and called up for a consultation. Its important to understand scoliosis is easier to treat in the early mild stages rather than waiting for it to worsen to the stages of surgery. After 3 months of non-surgical therapy and 3D Brace we saw good improvements and expect a good outcome for her scoliosis as she continues. Be proactive and learn that there are things you can do!
Case 16: Female, 14 years old
This is a patient who just completed a 5 days intensive treatment as she was from China. She is a 14 year old girl who was recommended surgery. As she was has a larger build her scoliosis was detected later until it was 68 degrees. Within 5 days we were able to see significant improvements using the 3D Brace along with the scoliosis therapy by Dr. Kevin Lau. But most importantly was the correction out of brace which saw her scoliosis improve significantly from the initial 68 degrees to 55 degrees. Congratulations to her and we wish her all the best as she continues the treatment back home.
Case 15: Female, 13 years old
This Singaporean 13 year old girl got excellent correction for her scoliosis after completing her Scoliosis treatment and 3D Brace with Dr. Kevin Lau over a 3 month period. It's lucky that her parents sort treatment for their daughter after the hospital told them there was nothing to do just wait and see if she needed surgery later. Her hard work and commitment really paid off with good improvements seen on both the top and bottom curves. With school holidays coming, it is a perfect time to get your kids started on a program to correct scoliosis before it gets worst. Dr. Kevin Lau offers 5 days intensive treatments as well as 3 month programs. All treatments are individually tailored and monitored personally by himself.
Case 14: Female, 8 years old
This 8 year old girl has quite a high risk of scoliosis progression due to her age and preexisting marfan syndrome. Her older sister had already been through scoliosis surgery which lead to the mother researching to find a way to prevent this occurring to her younger daughter. After only 2 months of treatment using the Dr Kevin Lau's scoliosis treatment with the 3D Brace we are happy to report good correction. In brace xrays show NO scoliosis while the out of brace showed 5 and 10 degrees permanent correction for the curves! While she is still young she still has the risk of progression during her growth spurt years. But with the right treatment we hope to guide her spine through these high risk periods and ultimately avoid surgery.
Case 13: Female, 13 years old
This 13 year old girl got excellent correction for her scoliosis after completing her Scoliosis treatment and 3D Brace with Dr. Kevin Lau. It's lucky that her parents sort treatment for their daughter after the hospital told then there was nothing to do just wait and see if she needed surgery later. Her hard work and commitment really paid off with good improvements seen.
Case 12: Female, 14 years old
This is a patient who just completed a 5 days intensive treatment as she was from China. She is a 14 year old girl who was recommended surgery. As she was has a larger build her scoliosis was detected later until it was 68 degrees. Within 5 days we were able to see significant improvements using the 3D Brace along with the scoliosis therapy by Dr. Kevin Lau. But most importantly was the correction out of brace which saw her scoliosis improve significantly from the initial 68 degrees to 55 degrees. Congratulations to her and we wish her all the best as she continues the treatment back home.
Case 11: Female, 14 years old
This 14 year old girl came to me from Japan. She initially had a 35 degree curvature in 2015 which increased to 54 degrees in the thoracic and 46 degree in the lumbar when she first came to see me in 2016. Due to the aggressive situation I recommended we start her on the therapy with Dr. Kevin Lau and 3D Brace. The x-ray taken is only 1 month after... already we are getting good correction in the top and bottom curvature. Keep up the hard work and congratulations on what you have achieved so far! Points to remember: 1) This treatment is NOT chiropractic based. 2) No other brace can achieve this even Spinecor or Boston. 3) Patient compliance is important.
Case 10: Female, 13 years old
This thirteen years old girl had scoliosis with a high risk of progression. After undergoing treatment scoliosis treatment her this is the results. Dr. Kevin Lau's scoliosis treatment is focus on non-surgical straightening of the spine. While he himself is a chiropractor, he does NOT recommend regular chiropractic treatments for scoliosis. For more information you can read his bestselling book "Your Plan for Natural Scoliosis Prevention and Treatment" which is now in its 4th edition.
Case 9: Female, 15 years old
In 3 short months we were able to reduce this 15 year old girls scoliosis from 54 degrees to 44 degrees without bracing or surgery. Only 4 more degrees and even the hospital orthopedic surgeon won't be recommending surgery. Wish her all the best in as she continues her treatment with Dr. Kevin Lau. Yes scoliosis surgery can be avoided as long as you're committed to the treatment plan.
Case 8: Female, 15 years old
After 4 hard working months this 15 year old girl was able to reduce her scoliosis from 60 degrees to 44 degrees. We had to use a mix of scoliosis exercises and therapy designed by Dr. Kevin Lau and a newer style of brace called 3D Brace. Scoliosis correction is never easy when your curve is severe so I commend her on her hard work and level of commitment which ultimately means she won't have to undergo scoliosis surgery. Hoping to see even better results in the months to come.
Case 7: Female, 34 years old
This is a 34 year old woman who came in for a check up on her spine. She was concerned as it was almost 15 years since her last check up when she was a teenager. Now working full time in an office she occasionally get lower back pain and stiffness after sitting for long hours. After 3 months of treatments of once a week due to her busy work schedule her scoliosis improved from 58 to 29 degrees on top and 50 to 24 degrees below! Just goes to show your never too late or too old to achieve a healthier spine.
Case 6: Female, 13 years old
Scoliosis success! After 6 months of treatment and following the advice in my books this 13 year old girl was finally able to reduce her scoliosis and avoid surgery. This was after years of failed bracing and other methods. Treat the person NOT the deformity!
Case 5: Female, 12 years old
Success! Here is a 12 year old girls xrays over the last 11 months of coming to see me for non-surgical correction. Her own hospital was monitoring her case and sent her for xrays every 4 months - 6 months with steady improvements each time. Most improtantly her scoliosis did not increase during this crucial growth spurt period and in fact showed improvements. Scoliosis correction is NOT easy and there is no quick fixes... but with commitment, dedication and the right know how it is possible.
Case 4: Female, 15 years old
15 year old girl who has been seeing me did her 6 month review and the scoliosis treatment was a success! Her scoliosis was steadily increasing each time she had a review with the specialist in the hospital. The parents were quite concerned as the boston brace was not working and didn’t want to follow the wait till the next review approach. Fearing that the curve could worsen to needing surgery the parents decided to come in to seek a second opinion. After 3 months they were already seeing improvements in her curve and upon the 6 month review with the hospital the x-rays showed an improvement! Surgery was luckily avoided because they were proactive. Health is in there hands!
Case 3: Female, 56 years old
The following result is from a mature patient of mine who's 56 years old. Her daughter was noticing that over the years her mothers posture was worsening and her height was shortening. This is when she asked the mother to come an get a check up with Dr. Kevin Lau. You are never too old to get a better spinal health and her results are a testament to this. After 3 month we were able to reduce both her curves and she feels better and healthier than she had in years. All those aches and pains she thought was normal part of aging disappeared.
