Default Alternatives to Surgery...advice thanks!

Hello - to cut a long story short we were told on Thursday that we are looking at surgery for my daughter in November due to the rapid progression of her Cobb angle (39 to 60 degrees in 4 months)....

I am looking for other alternatives. I realise that if we have to go down the surgery path we will, but as a parent I need to have ALL the info and exhausted possibilities before we take on the risk of surgery.

I have contacted the Socli Academy in the US, they use a range of alternative techniques. Has anyone had any dealings with them at all? Or know of a similar clinic here in Australia?

They use the schroth method along with a heap of other things, does anyone know of certified schroth practitioners here in Australia?

We will travel, that isn't a problem.

Thanks for your help and insights.

Kellie

Hi Kellie ,
Yes i know of a Scroth clinic in Melbourne. Not sure where you are in Australia .
I am currently so confused as there are 2 different types of Scroth as well .A German based and Spanish ..they are both quite different.
I am 52 and have a 61 degree curve . Good on you for trying all therapies for your daughter. Back in the 70s they did nothing just live with it !!
Things and Drs have i proved so much
Good luck
