Scoliosis Reversing?


Recently, as confirmed by the orthopedist last week, Bertrand's back hasn't been looking bad. In fact, could it be looking better?

Look at the photo above of Bertrand playing today. You can see how straight he is sitting. I just barely see the curve. Are my eyes not seeing right? Am I going crazy? (Well, crazier?)

I am very curious to hear what the folks at Now I Can say about his back & hips tomorrow. Bertrand has taken his homework very seriously! And, I'm so excited for Miss A & Miss V to meet our beloved Sergio, Natalie, and gang! :)

  4. I'm not sure how many of you are aware of the recent scientific developments and breakthroughs that have or are recently occurring in the field of scoliosis treatment. Prognostic testing/technology in the way of genetic testing and blood tests are now able to determine which early stage scoliosis patients are most likely to experience severe curve progression. This presents a new and unique opportunity for early stage scoliosis intervention rehab programs to reduce and eliminate many of the "at risk" smaller curve cases before they progress to much more complex and difficult large curvature cases. It’s actually quite revolutionary and amazing.

  5. Unfortunately the value of prognostic testing with ScoliScore has now been refuted in the scientific literature when the results published by Transgenomic were not able to replicated in other centers. The company no longer offers the prognostic test. At this time the best hope is the work of Alain Moreau of Canada who is working on a prognostic blood test. At this time it has not been released for human applications. Best wishes to you!
