How Can Osso Help Scoliosis?

At Osso, we understand the importance of early intervention when it comes to scoliosis treatment. The younger the patient, the better the chances of achieving optimal results. The golden time to treat a “Scoliosis” is before the age of 18 years old. Our comprehensive approach to scoliosis care begins with a thorough diagnosis, Digital X-Ray Screening followed by a customized treatment plan that incorporates with our cutting-edge technology Osso’s treatment.

Before we begin treatment, it is essential to determine the type and severity of scoliosis affecting the patient. We will send our patient to our own Advanced Digital  X-ray (click this link to find out more about our Digital X-ray Opening Promotion) screening to provide a clear picture of the spine’s curvature. Once we have analyzed and review the X-ray with precise measurements of each vertebra marked and the degree of the Scoliosis with our advanced X-Ray Software, we will discuss the findings with the patient and explain the recommended course of action.

Our Osso Flexion Distraction Adjustment Technique ®️ is a key component of our scoliosis treatment plan. This method involves the use of a specialized flexion distraction table, which can be adjusted to various angles of rotation to accommodate different scoliosis shapes. By rotating the table in the opposite direction of the patient’s spinal curvature, we can effectively target the affected area and promote proper alignment.

Following the flexion distraction treatment, we will perform both the OSSO Bone Care Adjustment Technique®️ and the OSSO 3D Spinal Decompression Therapy®️ (SDT). The OSSO 3D SDT is particularly important in scoliosis treatment, as the cushion on our SDT table can be rotated to the left and right, similar to the flexion table. This allows for a more efficient treatment process, as it stretches the spine and muscles simultaneously in the opposite direction of the patient’s spinal curvature.

Symptoms of Scoliosis:

Scoliosis is often diagnosed during a routine well-child check-up. A child with scoliosis may not yet have any symptoms. More severe degrees of curvature may cause noticeable symptoms, such as:

  • Uneven shoulder blades
  • Uneven hip bones
  • Prominent shoulder blades or ribs on one side
  • Uneven waist
  • Appearance of leaning to one side
  • Back pain
  • Muscle fatigue after sitting for a long time

Scoliosis

Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine. Instead of going from top to bottom in a relatively straight line, a spine with scoliosis may appear to have a side-to-side “S-shaped” or “C-shaped” curve. Mild degrees of scoliosis won’t cause any problems. However, more severe cases of scoliosis can result in pain, weakness, and low self-esteem because of obvious cosmetic deformity. Very severe scoliosis may cause heart and lung problems if those organs are overly cramped in an abnormally shaped chest cavity.

Scoliosis affects about 2% of females and 0.5% of males.

In most cases, the cause of scoliosis is unknown (known as idiopathic). This type of scoliosis is described based on the age when scoliosis develops, as are other some other types of scoliosis.

Scoliosis

Scoliosis is usually classified by the age at which it appears to have begun:
Infantile: between birth and age 3 (very rare)
Juvenile: from age 3 to age 10
Adolescent: over age 10 (most common)

What Causes Scoliosis?
There are many types and causes of scoliosis, including:

Congenital scoliosis – Caused by a bone abnormality present at birth.

Neuromuscular scoliosis – A result of abnormal muscles or nerves.

Degenerative scoliosis – This may result from traumatic (from an injury or illness) bone collapse, previous major back surgery, or osteoporosis.

Idiopathic scoliosis – The most common type of scoliosis, it has no specific identifiable cause. There are many theories, but none have been found to be conclusive.
