Re: Spinecor

Re: Spinecor

Re: Spinecor

Re: Spinecor

I wholeheartedly agree! While you're busy deciphering the the tea leaves and giving us your lay interpretations, maybe you should include in your e-mail to Dr. Goldberg that her study is false!

Re: Spinecor

Maybe you should contact Dr. Caroline Goldberb and express your concerns and doubts regarding her medical study, after all you're the expert, right?! :D Maybe the article won't make it past peer...

Re: Spinecor

I happened to come across the following study underway in Ireland. I don't believe the full study will be published until 2011:

Re: Spinecor

I absolutely agree Gilly! If she does need surgery eventually, well....at least I've done everything I could do. I haven't ruled out casting her for the duration of her adolescent growth spurt :D

Re: Spinecor

Thanks Concerned Dad! I've now included the Greek study in the Website.

What shortcomings do you see with the Pro- Spinecor literature? Not only does it corroborate dr. Rivard's study but also the...

Re: Spinecor

Thanks Mark! :squeeze: I hope so too. In the meantime she's a typical normal kid; scoliosis is not front and centre in her life. :D Here's a recent photo of Deirdre with her brother taken by a...

Re: Spinecor

Good point Toni!! However, the cynic in me is thinking: not as rare as congenital scoliosis in young children and yet look at all the attention the VEPTR and dual/single growth rods is getting at SRS...

Re: Spinecor

It's obvious Dr. Weiss was poorly trained to fit the brace, so I'm not really sure how he got the go a head to do the study????! Dr. Coillard did the initial fitting for the brace and there was no...

Re: Spinecor

Given that my daughter has been treated by dr. Rivard for the past 5 years, I have to give him the benefit of the doubt. What exactly were your expectations given that your daughter was 14 at the...

Re: Spinecor

So your daughter wore the brace for 4 weeks and then stopped? As you know, dr. Rivard's native language is French and he speaks English with a very thick accent, it's quite possible there was a...

Re: Why I am happy with Spinecor

My challenge to you is to find one article or statement by an orthopaedic doctor that VBS is an alternative to spinal fusion! I dare ya!
