Research on Scoliosis

ScoliSMART doctors have published many peer-reviewed research papers on the effectiveness of alternative scoliosis treatments. Our research on scoliosis has led to discoveries in scoliosis causes as well as innovative and successful non-invasive treatment options.

Highlights Clinical Research by ScoliSMART

93% of patients didn’t reach the surgical threshold. The average improvement was 9-15 degrees

51.7% of patients achieved curve correction and 38.3% achieved stabilization. In the curve correction group, average total correction was 12.75°

Genetic Testing for Scoliosis
2 hours of ScoliSMART Activity Suit as effective as full-time back braces

AIS patients were able to prevent their curves from progressing during growth, while those participating in an observation-only strategy saw their curves progress to beyond threshold where rigid brace prescription is recommended

Early Intervention versus Standard of Care for Mild Idiopathic Scoliosis: A Case-Controlled Series Based on Sosort Criteria Evaluating the Impact of a Scoliosis Activity Suit

18 month follow up of adults with the ScoliSMART Activity Suit

79% of patients achieved a curve correction of an average between 10-12 degrees

Follow up study of adults with spinal fusion using the ScoliSMART Activity Suit

The spinal fusion group achieved significant improvements in Cobb angle, pain scores, and quality of life rating after 6 months.

Clinical outcomes of a scoliosis activity suit worn by patients with chronic post-fusion pain: 6-month case-controlled results.

14 or more genetic variants increase risk of severe scoliosis progression by 33%

79% of patients achieved a curve correction of an average between 10-12 degrees

Pain and Radiographic Outcomes in Adult Idiopathic Scoliosis Patients Using a Scoliosis Activity Suit: An 18-Month Case Controlled Chart Review

Among patients initiating a combined approach, 81% of patients achieved an average improvement of 9.4 degrees, while 19% remained stable until skeletal maturity. None of the patients progressed

Estrogen genetic variant linked to adolescent idiopathic scoliosis

Patients with idiopathic scoliosis had a significantly higher number of genetic variants compared to non-scoliosis patients. Scoliosis patients whose curves exceeded the surgical threshold of 50 degrees had a significantly higher number of genetic variants compared to those below 50 degrees.

Genetic Testing for Scoliosis
Abnormal neurotransmitter patterns linked to curve progression

Patients with progressive idiopathic scoliosis showed significantly different neurotransmitter levels compared to mild scoliosis and those without scoliosis.

Association between Urinary Neurotransmitter Status and Scoliosis Progression: A Case-Controlled Series

Nutrient therapies improve treatment outcomes

Patients participating in a neurotransmitter rebalancing program along with scoliosis-specific exercises sustained 3 times as much Cobb angle correction as compared to those only doing scoliosis-specific exercises.

MTHFR genetic variant linked to adolescent idiopathic scoliosis

Patients with idiopathic scoliosis were 2-3 times more likely to have a single or double MTHFR gene variant compared to non-scoliosis patients.
