Default Re: Went To Scoliosis Sos Today

Hi Curvyclaire, welcome to SSO

We have had members in the past who have been to both Joanna Slup and to Scoliosis SOS. They offer different treatments, in that Joanna Slup is a certified Schroth physiotherapist and thus teaches the Katherina Schroth Method, and Scoliosis SOS provide their own brand of physio called "Scoliogold".

Welcome again,

Toni xx
37 years old, diagnosed with infantile idiopathic scoliosis at 6 months old with curves of 62(T) and 40(L) degrees. Casting and Milwaukee braces until surgery at 10 - ant release/pos fusion T1-T12, halo traction. Post op cast and then TLSO. Further surgery at 18 (ant release/pos fusion extended to L3 to include lumbar curve, costoplasty) and 25 (another costoplasty). Fusion extended to L4 at 33 (XLIF with 4 pedicle screws and two short rods). Pre-op curves: 76(T) and 70(L). Post-op curves: 45(T) and 35(L). Diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome aged 34; scoliosis almost certainly due to this rather than being idiopathic.
