37% Initial Reduction Kaylee is a 14.4 year old female Risser IV with a primary thoracic scoliosis and right body shift of 2 inches. Initial response to 2 week BootCamp resulted in a 37% reduction of her scoliosis from 49º to 31º. She was prescribed daily home exercises consisting of a TorsoTrainer™ and a vestibular disc to ensure new muscle memory will be achieved. She will be evaluated in 3 months to determine the effectiveness of home care.
Improved Body Shift Baili is a 13.5 year old female with severe primary thoracic scoliosis and postural deformity. Initial response to Scoliosis BootCamp exercise training was a 30% decrease to her spinal curvature, from 60º to 42º, and a 60% improvement with postural asymmetry taking her body shift from 4 inches to 1.5 inches. Stable muscle memory should occur within 3 months of the BootCamp with daily exercises, followed by another week of BootCamp where we will again aim to further reduce and stabilize her curvature.
34% Stable Correction Fifteen year old Kayla had primary lumbar scoliosis with a significant rotation Risser IV. The 14 month follow up demonstrates a 32º Cobb angle and a stable correction of 34% with de-rotation occurring, creating a very nice cosmetic improvement.
NON-SURGICAL, COMPREHENSIVE, PATIENT-CENTERED SCOLIOSIS TREATMENT AT ESPRIT WELLNESS
ScoliSMART™ exercise is the first scoliosis treatment approach that uses nutritional support principles in combination with both static and dynamic Auto Response Training equipment.
Recent clinical studies have shown that certain neuro-transmitter imbalances are commonly found in scoliosis patients. These neurotransmitters are directly related to your spine’s reflex control mechanism, which affects your spine’s alignment. Our doctors test these neurotransmitters and provide supplementation to support, rebalance, and prevent spinal fatigue during exercises. Neurotransmitter monitoring in combination with Auto Response Training create a unique environment for positively influencing these spine reflexes and reducing your scoliosis. Auto Response Training is performed using specialized equipment such as the TorsoTrainer™, Scoliosis Cantilever™ and the patented Scoliosis Activity Suit™.
ScoliSMART™ exercises focus on your spines reflexes and subconscious brain control. Like the beating of our heart, the alignment of our spinal column is controlled by your brain. Like your heart beat, your spinal alignment cannot be directly controlled by you. You can, however, indirectly influence this control mechanism by causing a reaction. Our doctors use exercise equipment, to engage the muscles supporting your spine’s alignment. This equipment influences how the brain contracts your spine’s deep muscle layers, the layers controlling alignment of your spine. You do not “think” about which muscle to contract, rather your spine’s natural righting reflexes automatically do it for you. This is known as Auto Response Training. For example, if you were to run up a flight of stairs your heart would automatically increase its rate in order to produce more blood flow. It is an autonomic reflex that increased the heart rate; we use this same principal to cause your spinal reflexes to react causing more symmetrical muscle firing resulting in a straighter spine.
A 10-day moderate intensity scoliosis exercise program addressing idiopathic scoliosis starting at 25°. The main goal of this program is to properly determine the type of curvature, risk of progression, and long-term prognosis utilizing ScoliSMART™ exercises. This program is effective at slowing or stopping progression, reducing existing curvature, and stabilizing the spine.
A dynamic exercise program used in combination with outpatient care. The Scoliosis Activity Suit is designed to work with the natural torque of human locomotion.
Our doctors provide supplementation to address neuro-transmitter imbalances in order to support, rebalance, and prevent spinal fatigue during ScoliSMART exercises.
Avoid surgery and decrease spine curvature.
28% Initial Reduction
14 year old male Risser 3 with a primary thoracic scoliosis and right body shift of 2 inches. He partook in a 2 week ScoliSMART™ Bootcamp. Post ScoliSMART™ Bootcamp, he was prescribed daily home exercises consisting of a TorsoTrainer™ and a vestibular disc to ensure new muscle memory would be achieved. Initial response to 2 week BootCamp resulted in a 28% reduction of his scoliosis from 43º to 31º. His 6 month re-evaluation curve was holding at 30º.
70% Initial Reduction
10 year old female Risser 0 with a primary thoracico-lumbar scoliosis. She partook in ScoliSMART BootCamp care in our office. Post ScoliSMART, she was prescribed daily home exercise consisting of a Torso Trainer and a vestibular disc to ensure new muscle memory would be achieved. She has had additional care in our office since. She started at 50 degrees and 2 years later holding at 36 degrees.
32% Initial Reduction
18 year old female Risser 4 with a primary thoracic scoliosis and right body shift of 3 inches. She partook in a 2 week ScoliSMART™ Bootcamp. Post ScoliSMART™ Bootcamp, she was prescribed daily home exercises consisting of a TorsoTrainer™ and a vestibular disc to ensure new muscle memory would be achieved. 2 week ScoliSMART™ Bootcamp resulted in a 32% scoliosis reduction. Scoliosis was reduced from 41º to 28º. Follow-up in 3-months to monitor stabilization.
62% Initial Reduction
9 year old female, Risser 0 with an S scoliosis. She partook in a 2 week ScoliSMART™ Bootcamp. Post ScoliSMART™ Bootcamp, she was prescribed daily home exercises consisting of a lumbar cantilever and a vestibular disc to ensure new muscle memory would be achieved. She was evaluated in 12 months to determine the effectiveness. Her initial curves where 24º Thoracic and 25º Lumbar. Her 12 month re-evaluation curves where 10º Thoracic and 9º Lumbar.

Neurotransmitters are chemicals used by our brain to communicate with the rest of the body. To use an analogy, our nervous system is similar to a long stretch of roads and highways. Along various roads we come to a traffic light. These ‘intersections’ or junctions use neurotransmitters to allow nerve communication to continue on down the road, similar to the way a green light allows traffic through, and red tells it to stop. If there aren’t enough ‘green light’ neurotransmitters, the brain cannot effectively communicate with the rest of the body,
thus contributing to neurological symptoms.
ScoliSMART™ clinics utilize urinalysis testing to look for direct measures of neurotransmitters. Urinalysis is an easy, noninvasive means of collecting this information. A single morning collection of urine is enough to evaluate the most common neurotransmitters.
Since neurotransmitters are created from amino acids, and metabolized by various enzymes, neurotransmitter imbalances can typically be corrected by individualized amino acid and/or enzyme supplementation. Once neurotransmitter imbalances are corrected via supplementation, ongoing maintenance can often be achieved by dietary modification, thus introducing food choices that are rich in specific amino acids or enzymes.
Preliminary research suggests that specific neurotransmitter deficiencies may contribute to the development or progression of idiopathic scoliosis. Some neurotransmitters are vital for the maintenance of normal postural control. Therefore, if those neurotransmitters are out of balance, postural control suffers, and therefore may create an environment favorable to the development of scoliosis, or the progression of an existing scoliosis. It is also important to restore normal neurotransmitter levels so that patients may improve their ability to participate in exercise-based scoliosis programs. Since ScoliSMART™ exercises require repetitive stimulation of postural control centers, having normal neurotransmitter levels may help scoliosis patientsget better results from their specifically prescribed ScoliSMART™ exercises.
Yes, typically most insurance companies provide for neurotransmitter testing. However, Pharmasan Labs is an out-of-network lab. Please check with your insurance company to ensure out-of-network labs are a covered benefit. Also, for those who are underinsured/uninsured, Pharmasan Labs offers a very reasonable PrePay cash price to run the test.
