Free Virtual Scoliosis Consultation

Scoliosis affects around three to four children in every 1,000 in the UK and is most often seen in children between the ages of 10 and 15. It is also more common in females than males.

We offer a free initial virtual scoliosis appointment for those seeking scoliosis advice and non-surgical treatment.

This will allow you to talk directly to one of our specialist scoliosis clinicians via a Zoom, Facetime or WhatsApp call.

During this consultation, your clinician will be able to answer any detailed questions or concerns you might have before booking a face-to-face assessment with us.

This free, online consultation will last around 15 minutes. You will need a working camera and microphone for this call.

Anna Courtney, the London Orthotic Consultancy's clinical lead for scoliosis, has a virtual clinic on Monday evenings from 7-9 pm specifically for scoliosis patients seeking treatment.

What does a virtual scoliosis consultation involve?

The purpose of the appointment is to allow you to talk directly to one of our specialist clinicians about your options for scoliosis bracing treatment and how the LOC Scoliosis Brace works.

Your clinician will be able to answer any detailed questions or concerns you might have before booking a face-to-face assessment.

During the virtual appointment, an orthotist will carefully assess your back and advise you if they recommend treatment. If scoliosis treatment is prescribed, you can then arrange a face-to-face assessment.

Before your appointment, we recommend you read through our Scoliosis Frequently Asked Questions to get the most out of your consultation.





Face-to-face appointments

Initial face-to-face appointments consist of:

  • an interview detailing all relevant clinical history
  • an examination to identify the type of scoliosis you have
  • a discussion of the most effective treatment options available to you

Please bring any X-rays, scans and other information that you feel may be important to your assessment with you.

To allow for a successful consultation, you will be required to remove some clothing. We recommend female patients wear leggings and a crop top and male patients wear tight-fitting shorts or underwear. This is to ensure optimum images can be taken.

Please note that patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian for all appointments.

As well as our Kingston clinic, we are also able to see scoliosis patients for initial face-to-face assessments at our clinic at Ten Harley Street. (Please note, all follow-up brace fitting appointments must be carried out at our Kingston clinic.)​





Patients under 18 years old

Please note, it is mandatory for children or adolescent patients (under 18) to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian during all Zoom, Facetime, and WhatsApp calls. This is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our patients.

Both the minor and the accompanying adult must acknowledge and consent to this requirement. We reserve the right to terminate assessments if this condition is not met.




For Plagiocephaly free photo diagnosis, please upload images in accordance with our plagiocephaly photo guide (max. 2mb each).

For Pectus, please follow our pectus photo guide (max 2mb each).
