    Scoliosis treatment needs to be re-invented.

    Genetic testing for idiopathic scoliosis (Scoliscore) is a dramatic breakthrough in prognostic testing for idiopathic scoliosis and can now accurately identify the children with scoliosis whom are most genetically pre-disposed to developing a severe scoliosis spine. This is spell the

As many experts have suspected for decades, breakthroughs in scoliosis genetic testing (Scoliscore) and the scoliosis blood test have uncovered sequences of genetic code that leave an individual “genetically pre-disposed” to the development of severe idiopathic scoliosis. However, since the condition doesn’t appear until adolescence

    As far as it looks right now, it looks like the environmental factors of idiopathic scoliosis seem to be falling into one of three catagories that all interact with each other and the genetic pre-disposition (via epigenetics or otherwise). Let's see how many we can list under these catagories and even add more catagories if appropriate.

    Bio-mechanical
    Forward head posture
    Hip rotation
    Sacral inclination
