Let's Get it Straight ~

Scoliosis in Oman is a non-profit organization that seeks in raising awareness in Scolosis & non-surgical treatment via spinal rehabilitation.

What is Scoliosis?

Scoliosis of  the spine is a sideways curving that can often result in an 'S' shape or 'C' shape curve in the spine.The curve is usually in the Thoracic or Lumbar regions of the spine. Scoliosis can either be congenital, meaning present from birth, or idiopathic, meaning it develops over time as a result of another condition such as cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy.

Scoliosis is about two times more common in girls than boys. It can be seen at any age, but it is most common in those over 10 years old. Scoliosis is hereditary in that people with scoliosis are more likely to have children with scoliosis; however, there is no correlation between the severity of the curve from one generation to the next.

There isn't also a lack of awareness in Scoliosis but there is a lack of awareness in the Scoliosis treatment. They are new non-surgical alternative treatments for Scoliosis that is growing more and more across the world. Scoliosis in Oman disagrees with surgical treatment on Idoapathic Scoliosis as long as those alternative treatments are there. 

We would like to advise anyone who would want to have Scoliosis surgery to read this research paper first. Click here for the research paper. We are not saying NEVER do surgery.  Yes, we agree that at some cases surgery is the only option, but most of them are not... even for curvatures upto 100 degrees.

We recommed buying this book as it explains non-surgical treatment via the Schroth Method. A brilliant book!
