The Scoliosis Activity Suit™ in and of itself is not a solo treatment. This Suit MUST be accompanied by a good neuromuscular rehabilitation program that will complement the Scoliosis Activity Suit™ and allow it to work to its maximum potential.

As you can see from these photos, the postural deviations are similar. However, the Scoliosis Activity Suit™ configuration is quite different. This is because the Scoliosis Activity Suit™ is configured in such a manner that causes neuromuscular reaction and ultimately self-correction. This is what makes the Scoliosis Activity Suit™ different from rigid bracing and dynamic bracing. Bracing forces the spine to hold a passive correction. The Scoliosis Activity Suit™ neurologically exaggerates the scoliosis torsion, thereby forcing the spinal rotator muscles to reflexively counter-rotate, resulting in immediate spine and posture improvement. But again, due to the flexibility of the Scoliosis Activity Suit™, it has to be used with a neuromuscular rehabilitation-based scoliosis program.

    Dr Stitzel,

    I hope my understanding of the activity suit mechanics is correct. In my daughter's case of reverse-S curve seen from behind, where her right shoulder and hips are higher, and she has upper-right thoracic curve and lower-left lumbar curve (which is most problematic), I imagine the activity suit picture on the left patient above is the correct configuration for my daughter.

    I can imagine how the right-leg attachment/ movement can pull in her lower-left lumbar curve, and correspondingly pull in upper-right thoracic curve and pull down right shoulder.

    Hi Andi,

    Your understanding seems to be correct, but I really can't comment without at least seeing some x-rays of the patient. Also, the SAS is not intended to be a stand alone treatment, it should be used with the ScoliSMART auto response training program and the neurotransmitter re-balancing as well.
