Do you have scoliosis but do not know how to manage it? We can help!

Early detection and timely treatment are crucial in preventing the progression of scoliosis

Apart From This-

For spinal curvatures past 60 degrees, the physical discomfort may be significant enough to cause difficulty with daily activities or physical exercises. When severe, respiratory issues may arise as well.
Scoliosis can be challenging to live with. No matter what degree your curve is, the personal challenges one may experience with scoliosis should not be ignored.

What Is Scoliosis?

Scoliosis is a 3-dimensional deformation of the spine, characterized by a ‘S’ or ‘C’-shaped side-ways curvature. It can affect people of all ages. The various types of scoliosis include: Idiopathic scoliosis, Congenital scoliosis, Degenerative scoliosis and Neuromuscular Scoliosis. Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) is the most common form of scoliosis.


In Singapore, AIS has an incidence rate of 2 percent and it is commonly found in healthy children aged between 10-17. Most adolescents diagnosed with AIS do not present with pain and cosmetic deformity can be subtle during the initial stages. Curve progression is most common around the time of puberty. Therefore, regular monitoring is highly recommended.


You may observe the following signs in a person presenting with scoliosis:
● A prominence on the back or a rib hump on forward bending secondary to the rotation aspect
● One hip is higher than the other, or more shifted to one side of the body
● Uneven waist angles and appearance of leg length discrepancy could result from the torso leaning to one side secondary to the curvatures

You may observe the following signs in a person presenting with scoliosis:

It is important to note that not everyone with degenerative scoliosis will experience all of these symptoms.

Among conservative management options, Physiotherapy Scoliosis Specific Exercise (PSSE) is an evidence-based type of treatment proven to help halt the progression of AIS, along with bracing when indicated.

Physiotherapy Scoliosis Specific Exercises (PSSE), previously known as Schroth Exercises, are a non-invasive treatment option for scoliosis that is taught based on your unique spinal curve pattern. The aim is to improve spinal stability by using a three-dimensional approach to correct imbalances in the trunk. It is an evidence-based method that helps to halt the progression of the scoliosis curvature, especially when combined with bracing for children with AIS.

The benefits and goals of PSSE include:
● Improve postural awareness and appearance
● Promote correction of spinal alignment in a three-dimensional manner
● Increase strength and endurance of the core musculature
● Relief pain and discomfort
● Complement bracing regime
● Improve lung function and quality of life
● Reduce rate of progression and risk of surgery
From our experiences of treating patients from all walks of life, young to old, we empathise with the difficulties of sourcing for a reliable treatment option.

The aim of PSSE and bracing is to halt curvature progression, there is no guarantee that treatment will result in reversal of scoliosis. By consistently incorporating physiotherapy exercises, most patients see and/or feel positive results in their posture over time. We do not recommend PSSE as an alternative to bracing, but as a supplementary to bracing, where bracing is recommended.
