Best Practice treatment of Scoliosis
LOC’s non-surgical treatment incorporates what is evidenced as the most effective brace for correcting Scoliosis – the Gensingen Brace ® according to Dr Weiss – and a comprehensive physiotherapy programme that adheres to the world renowned Schroth Best Practice. LOC has recently been recognised by the Schroth Best Practice Academy as the only best practice bracing centre in London and the south of England. Our Scoliosis clinic is led by Sally Hews BSc (Hons).
Following a patient’s assessment, a series of scans, photographs and measurements are taken by Sally.
Dr Weiss personally designs each brace according to the information LOC provides using his unique evidence based CAD modelling technique and curve classification approach. LOC also uses CADCAM technology to create the positive model and manufacture the brace.
The brace is then fitted and fine tuned by Sally based on the training she has received from Dr Weiss, drawing on his years of experience in treating scoliosis. Dr Weiss remains a supportive resource to draw upon throughout the treatment so LOC can achieve the best possible outcome for each patient. At a 6 week review appointment we analyse the function and fit of the brace using an in-brace X-ray which is sent to Dr Weiss for review and comment if necessary. Above is a photo sent in by the father of one of our scoliosis patients going through Gensingen brace treatment, which details the improvements in the shape of her curve and rib hump after only four weeks. To provide the complete treatment package of bracing and physiotherapy we have teamed up with Deborah Turnbull BSc CSP who has a decade of experience in the Schroth method and is the only certified therapist in Schroth practicing in London UK.
