LOC's comprehensive treatment package for scoliosis includes the following services and support:
Each patient is given a comprehensive wear and care guide which covers the most frequently asked questions we receive about wearing the brace.
Patients and their parents will be offered the direct e-mail addresses of the treating orthotist so they can contact them when they need. Between review appointments, our admin team can set up face-to-face appointments, as well as appointments by phone or video call with your clinician to discuss any concerns or questions you may have.
Using patient X-Rays and Cobb angle measurements and feeding these back to patients has been proven to motivate both patients and parents throughout the course of treatment. This can encourage them to persevere and stick to their brace prescription and individual physiotherapy exercise programmes.
We are currently reviewing our Saturday sessions as part of a new treatment package with our partner Scoliosis SOS.
Lead scoliosis clinician at LOC Anna Courtney is now registered with BUPA. BUPA should cover most of the cost of our scoliosis treatment package. Please have your pre-authorisation number ready when you call to book your appointment.
If you have private medical insurance with other companies please contact that company directly to enquire about cover for this treatment. We note that you remain fully responsible for the timely payment of your bill in the event that BUPA or any other health insurer does not pay.
We are pleased to be able to offer a same-day assessment and fitting service. Patients coming in for this service must send us a recent x-ray before their appointment.
The morning assessment starts between 9:00 and 9:30am and the brace is fitted at 2:30pm on the same day.
If you would like to take advantage of this service please advise us when booking your assessment.
We welcome international patients from around the world. Please see our scoliosis services page for patients outside the UK.

We have the clinical experience and expertise combined with in-house CADCAM modelling and in-house manufacturing to provide the best scoliosis bracing treatment in the UK.
"My results are amazing and unexpected and I am glad that I received the brace through LOC. I am still wearing the brace 18 months later and my back feels even straighter. Thanks to LOC I realised that I wanted to help people with similar if not the same condition as me, so I am now going to Salford University in September to study Orthotics & Prosthetics so I will hopefully be able to help others with Scoliosis as much as LOC has helped me."
