Scoliosis Screening

While school programs often check posture in adolescents, current findings are that the age 8-12 can be an optimal time to find and correct structural faults. Lability in posture and structure can even be assessed at younger ages in cases of:

  • Low muscle tone
  • Strong family history of Spinal Deformities with Scoliosis Diagnosis
  • Children with Rheumatoid Diseases
  • Children with Issues of Balance and Coordination
  • Children with Visual Deficits
  • Children utilizing Computers, videogames, phones on a multi-hour basis daily including school.

Scoliosis and structural faults are treatable and early detection is key in managing this dysfunction.
