Why don't they staple adults?
I mean if you can correct adult spines with fusion then why not with staples? In both approaches, the mechanism is not growth modulation but spinal alignment.

Question: What do you call alternative medicine that works?

If you look up twistedlifter, he has pictures posted. I don't think I've ever seen a more muscular scoliotic body, yet his muscles don't make his spine straight. If I remember, I think he has at least one curve in the 70's. I could be wrong, since he hasn't posted for a long time.
So much interesting issue Roher, I thought exactly like you before I talked with Kevin about that http://www.scoliosis.org/forum/showt...muscular+flerc
An extremely elemental reasoning have lead me to believe that, but we might only say it’s true if we are focused only in an static position, not dynamic.
I also don’t know which kind of exercise she does. Exercises seems to only provide force to do that specific exercise. If you swim all the day, you'll have a great force for swimming, not necessarily for fight against gravity force.
I believe that muscles were the responsables of that straightening.. and not as I believed because their lenght (as ligaments) but because their activation in the right way.. I supposed then that at least some improvement should to do in a spine without surgery.
