Treatments

Spinal Inc’s corporate philosophy has always revolved around Innovation, Trust and Hope.

Our clinical approach for treatment has tried to be as innovative as possible in blending various methods to achieve best results for our patients.  We do not believe that results can be achieved with only one system.  There are many methods globally which offer many advantages to scoliosis correction and spinal restoration.

The principle methods or systems we adapt at Spinal Inc are:

Schroth Method

Katharina Schroth (Est. 1921, Germany) suffered from scoliosis herself and thus created exercises based upon stretches and posture correction to help her own scoliosis.  Christa Lehnert-Schroth and Dr Hans Rudolf Weiss continued to operate the hospital until 1995 when Asklepios bought over the corporate rights.

PNF Technique

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) (Est. 1951, USA) by Herman Kabat, a neurologist.  Stretching techniques commonly used in clinical environments to enhance both active and passive range of motion with the ultimate goal being to optimize motor performance and rehabilitation.  PNF techniques were used to aid the rehabilitation of clients with spasticity and weakness by facilitating muscle elongation. This is theorized to be accomplished through enhanced inhibitory mechanisms affecting the spastic muscle, and improving the muscle strength through improved excitation mechanisms in the weakened muscle.

Vibration Therapy

Vibration therapy (Est. 2005’s, USA) it’s idea came from the chronic back pain obtained by occupational hazard of drivers using large vehicles.  The discovery that 30Hz of frequency was the most optimum in producing maximum ligamentous laxity of the spine.  This idea has been input into spinal therapy to help with spinal and ligament moulding to help correct the scoliosis.

Mechanical Mobilsation

With the aid of equipment we use manual therapy to encourage the spine to move in a anti-scoliosis state. A gentle and pain-free treatment to create movement of the spine to upkeep flexibility.
