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 therapy 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 corrected even when you’re older. Dr Kevin Lau’s ScoliLife program is suitable for all ages!
