    Scoliosis Gym

    Has anyone tried these new scoliosis exercises? Their Facebook page states that their scoliosis exercises are more effective than Schroth.

    Do they have proof?

    Structural curves or functional curves?

    Permanently?

    I'll just add it is not to hard to be more effective at Schroth at straightening the spine. The developer now routinely uses braces and admits PT doesn't work.

    I'm 47 and my curves are 23 and 13. I'm 6'2 or 6'3 depending on my alignment. When I was 36, I drove myself to the ER with chest pains and dizzy spells. The ER checked me out but I found help with a chiropractor a few days later; he made me taller on my first visit and I've been seeing him ever since.

    This question is asked in their latest instagram post and they replied. Can someone at NSF contact the developer and invite them to this forum? Their phone number and email address are in the youtube videos. I emailed my xray to them but haven't received a reply.

    I didn't see any radiographs in that Instagram post. Therefore no proof.

    Also, you can stand differently and produce at least a 10 degree reduction in the curve. That is probably what is happening here.
