Scoliosis Screening

Scoliosis is a condition affecting the position of the spine in three dimensions, the most notable change normally being a sideways curvature of the spine. It is a condition often missed as it is generally not painful. Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis occurs in approximately 2-3% of children and is more common in females, with the ratio of 10 females to one male having a curve which warrants treatment. About three in 1000 children have curves that are large enough to need treatment.

 

 

The signs to look out for:

- Ribs: you may notice a difference in your child’s ribs when they lean forward, one side of the ribs may be more raised than the other.

- Shoulder blade asymmetry: you may notice winging of your child’s shoulder blade, or that one shoulder seems to be higher than the other.

- Clothes not sitting evenly: often T-shirts or pants/skirts may not seem to fit correctly or symmetrically.

 

 

We have a scoliosis physiotherapist, Geraldine, who practices in the treatment of the Schroth Method for scoliosis; she has also trained overseas in this method.

Free Screening

If you are concerned that you or your child may have scoliosis we have a free screening program available. You will be able to book a 20 minute Free Initial Assessment with Geraldine. If the curve is suspected to be scoliosis we are able to refer for a bulk billed X-Ray at Perth Radiological Clinic for scoliosis screening X-Rays. If scoliosis is confirmed on X-Ray, Geraldine will be able to liaise with your GP to start the most appropriate course of action.
