Most are diagnosed with scoliosis between the ages of 10 and 15, but the condition also affects infants and adults. It is a condition that affects people of all races, classes and both genders. Girls are eight times more likely than boys to have a curve that will progress to a magnitude that requires treatment. Scoliosis is common in children with a variety of congenital and neuromuscular diseases, but it is most prevalent in seemingly healthy children, with no known cause (idiopathic).
Scoliosis is, by essence, a disease of the tonic postural system. The shoulders and pelvic girdles are buffer systems of posture, yet, in most cases of scoliosis, it seems that they no longer play their role: the buffer is now at the spine. Regardless of the genetic factors that can cause scoliosis, gravity is an essential postural factor to be considered in the treatment of idiopathic adolescent scoliosis (IAS) or back pain in adults. The study and monitoring of postural balances on the stabilometry platform allows us to understand and verify the results of combined support with Postural Recalibration.
Most curvatures are minor and require only that patients are monitored by their doctors. Postural Recalibration reduces the frequency of back pain by improving postural balance. It can be used as a preventive measure in children, during treatment of scoliosis with a brace, after the treatment of scoliosis with surgery in adolescents or during rehabilitation of scoliosis in adults.
