    Thank you orchid, that is a reasonable response. I hope that Erika Maude's clinic will document their claims. I am very familiar with Schroth and its extensive literature, but am not clear about what the distinction is with "Scoliogold."

    I suggested that bluestone have a look at this clinic -- and others I mentioned -- simply because it is not too far from the Midlands where she lives. It is extremely unlikely that physiotherapy would do any harm, but very likely that scoliosis-specific PT will help at least for pain, and probably fairly quickly.

    That's ridiculously classic, Writer, and quite possibly, among the most non-sequitur statements I've seen you pen. How uncouth of me to display the poor manners to disagree with an expert like you!

    I didn't even comment on Schroth (since you obviously weren't paying attention when you read my response): The ONLY thing on which I commented, and referenced the comments of others from another recent thread, was Scoliogold.

    Such a typical response from you, and no wonder many believe the link you purport to Schroth is understated at best, disingenuous at worst.

    While core-strengthening is never a bad thing, progressive curvature above/below a fused area is most often caused by decompensation (non-inclusion of all curve-involved vertebra in the fusion). If you're going to pretend to know *everything*, at least get the basics correct.

    (... just like I'm not "the Marine")
    Fusion is NOT the end of the world.
