    Any experience with Freda Nogee in Long Island?

    I'm currently deciding between the traditional Scroth and the updated Schroth Best Practice for my daughter. Freda Nogee, PT, is apparently the only therapist in NY certified by Dr. Moramarco in Boston to offer the Scroth Best Practice technique. Has anyone heard of or dealt with Freda Nogee?

    Thanks, Victoria

    Hi and welcome.

    Maybe someone will comment in answer to your question but I hope you know Moramarco is a chiropractor and not a doctor.

    There are other certified, experienced Schroth therapists on Long Island. One is Jeanann Maguffin at Scoliosis Care Physical Therapy. She is wonderful. Try contacting her. She also knows other Schroth therapists in the area. Good luck!

    Yes, I have heard great things about Jeanann Maguffin. I just wrote her an email after I read your reply. I hope that she can answer a few of my questions and help me decide. Thanks!

    I wish that something could be done about the way that chiros call themselves 'doctors'. It is just to mislead patients.

    In UK if you study for a PHD in any subject you are awarded a 'Doctorate' - this is a title you can use to be addressed but convention is that it isn't used to avoid confusion with Doctors in the medical world.

    It seems that in chiropractic you only have to 'pass the course' ( not a course at PHD level) to call yourself a 'Doctor of Chiropractic'. it's disgraceful that they go around calling themselves Doctors- it is done to inflate their ego and to attract attention.

    I completely agree. A chiropractic degree is not in any way equivalent to a medical degree and they should not be using the same title.

    Chiros are not qualified to treat scoliosis FULL STOP. Chiro school is more of a trade school with a very low GPA required to gain admittance. The reports of material form actual classes in chiro school would make you cringe... these people don't seem to have a basic grasp on science. The entire field sits on a big lie... subluxations. It has been shown that subluxations are imaginary.

    The reason most Spinecor braces are offered to kids by chiros and not legitimate doctors is because there is no good evidence the brace prevents surgery. Surgeons are required to pay attention to evidence and there is very little for Spinecor in preventing progression in kids.

    Spinecor for pain in adults is less studied and there is anecdotal evidence it helps in some people. But all braces take over for muscle and you will lose muscle tone in the brace. You can't wear it forever and when you come out you might be in more pain after having lost muscle. I think that's why PT might be better for pain... building core muscle to support the spine.
