The revolutionary SpineCor system for scoliosis will soon become the primary conservative management for scoliosis in the Carribean. Dr. Charles Isadore of Castries, St. Lucia will be offering the system at his clinic. Dr. Tom Pappas of Scoliosis Specialists will be in St. Lucia training providers on the SpineCor brace and protocol.
SpineCor Scoliosis Brace is the first and only truly dynamic brace, which provides a progressive correction of Idiopathic Scoliosis. Traditional rigid braces are non-dynamic and create muscle atrophy.
Dr. Pappas has been working with scoliosis for over 15 years and training providers on scoliosis management for over 5 years, and is considered one of the most knowledgeable sources on conservative management of scoliosis. Along with bracing, specific exercises will be discussed.
Recent research has shown that bracing with a dynamic brace along with SpineCor exercises can reduce a curve degree. The SpineCor Physiotherapy Program has been designed to complement the action of the brace and reinforce the principles of the treatment. Precise exercises have been designed for each type of scoliosis curve, according to the specific spine deformation and postural disorganization of the patient.
To take advantage of this opportunity and to schedule an appointment, please call Dr. Isadore’s office at (758) 572-6000. Please note that appointment time is very limited. Dr. Isadore will be seeing scoliosis patients with Dr. Pappas from March 25th - 27th.
