Treatments for Scoliosis: Spine-Worx Back Realignment Device
Spine-Worx Back Realignment Device is a device that is composed of two unique padded and contoured rails that that people with scoliosis and other back pain condition lay on to correct a misalignment of the spine.
Imagine having X-Ray vision, and being able to view the spine from two views:
In a person with a healthy spinal curvature, the side view of the spine would include three major curvatures in the cervical spine (neck), thoracic spine (chest), and lumbar spine (lower back). From a front to back view of the spine (in X-Ray it is known as an AP projection) the spine should appear as straight from front to bottom. Any abnormal curves in this view of the spine represent a spine with scoliosis. Scoliosis is a spine with one or two literature curvatures of the spine rather than a straight architecture.
Treatments: Conventional treatments for scoliosis fall under one of three main categories.
- From the front of the spine to the back, through the front of the chest
- And from a side view - from one side of the body to the other
- Non-treatment: In many cases, idiopathic scoliosis (scoliosis of no known cause) does not get worse over time, in terms of the angle of curvature. Scoliosis even reverses itself, in many cases of juvenile idiopathic scoliosis and adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. Also, in many cases the condition of scoliosis does not result in back pain or related symptoms. When the condition doesn't progress or cause pain, doctors don't consider treatment to be necessary.
- Treatment with Back Bracing and Physical Therapy: If the curvature is greater than 20-30 degrees, or if the bending of the spine continues to progress, some doctors recommend bracing and physical therapy to try to halt or reverse the progression.
- Back Surgery: If back bracing and physical therapy aren't successful at slowing the progression of the condition, back surgery may be performed.
The Spine-Worx Back Realignment Device may be another option to slowly realign the position of the spine, as a supplemental treatment. The Spine-Worx Back Realignment Device (by Spine-Worx spineworx.com) is a scoliosis apparatus available for home use (after consulting with a doctor) that is designed to straighten the spine. This device is designed to be placed on a flat surface, where it has a projection of contours that resembles the shape of a normal spine. This device, also known as Spineworks, is designed to be laid on by the individual with the scoliotic condition. The person lays down with the surface of their back in contact with the curves of the device. This device is portable and designed to travel with you, so that you may be able to use it at home or the office, to relieve lower back pain caused by scoliosis, lordosis, or degenerative disc disease.
As you lay on this device, the natural curve of your mid and lower back should fit into the contours of the Spineworks device. The material that your lower back rests is composed of an injection-molded material, so that it may perfectly mold to the unique shape of your back. As the weight of your body presses into the padded and contoured rails, the spinal bones and soft tissues of your body are encouraged to realign into their natural positions, correcting back pain conditions such as vertebral subluxations (partial dislocations of the joints of the spine).
