As a complex 3-dimensional condition, scoliosis needs to be treated proactively. Ranging from mild to very severe, no two cases are the same, which is why the customization of treatment plans is necessary. For patients recently diagnosed, the most important decision they’re faced with is which of the two main scoliosis treatment approaches to commit to.
Not all parts of the world have equal access to various scoliosis treatment options. For those unsatisfied with Brazil scoliosis treatment options, a 7-hour flight can put them within reach of leading scoliosis chiropractor, Dr. Tony Nalda, of Orlando, Florida’s Scoliosis Reduction Center.
In order to fully understand the importance of being proactive with treatment, let’s start with exploring the condition’s progressive nature.

Being diagnosed with scoliosis means an unnatural sideways spinal curvature has developed, and the spinal curve both bends and twists unnaturally; the rotational component makes scoliosis a 3-dimensional condition.
Scoliosis introduces a lot of uneven forces to the spine, its surroundings, and the entire body, which is why the main symptom of scoliosis in children is postural deviation; the main symptom of scoliosis in adults is pain, and this is because scoliosis becomes a compressive condition once skeletal maturity has been reached.
As a progressive condition, scoliosis has it in its nature to get worse over time, which is why being proactive with treatment is so important; where a scoliosis is at the time of diagnosis doesn’t mean that’s where it will stay.
Only proactive treatment can work towards counteracting the condition’s progressive nature, and this is why deciding which of the two main treatment approaches to commit to is such an important decision.
Dr. Tony Nalda, of the Scoliosis Reduction Center, has committed a large part of his career to educating the public about scoliosis, and he focuses on the benefit of early detection and chiropractic-centered conservative treatment, over traditional surgical treatment.
When it comes to progressive conditions like scoliosis, in many cases, when treatment is started can be as important as how it’s treated; remember, scoliosis isn’t a static condition.
Scoliosis ranges in severity from mild to moderate and severe to very severe; a measurement known as Cobb angle determines condition severity by how far out of alignment the most-tilted vertebrae (bones) of the curve are from the rest of the spine.
The higher a patient’s Cobb angle, the more severe the condition, and the more likely it is to cause noticeable effects; for children, that can include uneven shoulders, shoulder blades, the development of a rib arch, and uneven hips.
In adults, the more severe a condition, the more painful it’s likely to be and the more prominent the body’s lean to one side will be, in addition to the aforementioned postural changes that affect children.
The best way to minimize the condition’s effects is to treat it proactively, and here at the Center, I start treatment as close to the time of diagnosis as possible with the goal of preventing progression.
While there are never treatment guarantees, if scoliosis is detected early and responded to with a proactive treatment plan, there are fewer limits to what can be achieved.
Conservative treatment integrates a number of different scoliosis-specific treatment modalities so conditions can be impacted on every level and treatment plans can be fully customized.
I combine chiropractic care, physical therapy, corrective bracing, and rehabilitation.
Having access to so many different forms of treatment under one roof is hugely beneficial, so even if patients have to travel to reach the Center, once here, everything needed is under one roof, and the Center’s results speak for themselves.
Condition-specific chiropractic care can help achieve a curvature reduction on a structural level, and physical therapy can help increase core strength so the spine’s surrounding muscles can support it optimally.
Corrective bracing can help work towards corrective results by pushing the spine into a straighter and more neutral alignment, and rehabilitation involves a series of custom-prescribed home exercises to further stabilize and heal the spine.
I offer a non-surgical approach to treating scoliosis, one that’s worth traveling for, so for those in search of Sao Paulo scoliosis treatment, Brasilia, and Rio De Janeiro scoliosis treatment, a 7-hour flight from Brazil to Florida can have a life-changing impact.
In addition to the Center, the Sunshine state has many additional attractions to offer visitors: Disney World, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, and so much more.
While some patients still opt for traditional surgical treatment, the reality is that many cases of scoliosis don’t require surgery, and as spinal fusion comes with some serious potential risks, side effects, and complications, the procedure should be considered carefully.
For those interested in a less-invasive and more-natural treatment method for scoliosis, modern conservative scoliosis treatment focuses on corrective results through achieving a curvature reduction and increasing core strength so the spine receives more support.
By integrating multiple different treatment modalities, patients benefit from having their condition impacted on multiple levels, and this type of treatment works by preserving as much of the spine’s natural strength and function as possible; the main complaint of patients post-spinal fusion is a noticeable loss in spinal flexibility and range of motion, as this can impact overall quality of life.
So those looking for Brazil scoliosis treatment don’t have far to travel before they can access the many benefits associated with Dr. Tony’s non-surgical treatment approach; it can be as simple as taking that first step and reaching out for continued guidance and support.
