Every scoliosis patient is different. It is important to individualise every treatment program for this very reason. Although it is tempting, try not to compare your scoliosis care journey with someone else. Your treatment pathway is unique to you.

Understanding scoliosis

Scoliosis is a disorder that causes an abnormal curve of the spine. People with scoliosis may develop additional curves to either side of the body, with the bones of the spine twisting to form a “C” or an “S” shape in the spine.

Scoliosis can be seen at any age but it is most common in those over about 10 years of age. Scoliosis does not just affect children and teens. Adult Scoliosis can be a degenerative condition or a result of untreated pre-existing scoliosis conditions.

Dr Labrom is one of only a handful of Australian spinal surgeons who are full active members of the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS), an international organisation of specialists who dedicate their practice to the care of scoliosis.
