CSC’s Thorough Scoliosis Exam
Scoliosis needs accurate assessments followed by targeted treatment plans to achieve successful outcomes. CSC’s exam starts by determining the causes of scoliosis, and our scoliosis exams differ from the standard spine or joint exams. Some institutions offer a limited version, while others, such as our centers, provide a compressive assessment of the spine, together with the upper and lower extremities, as an integral part of our scoliosis exam protocols. Our centers offer two types of scoliosis exams:
- A quick scoliosis check
- A thorough scoliosis exam of a scoliotic patient
Come for a Free Quick Checkup Today
Our centers provide the “Quick Scoliosis Check” free of charge. A scoliosis exam at CSC is the best way to check your child for scoliosis. As the name implies, the process is quick and free. Please note that this free exam is not a thorough assessment. If we detect scoliosis, we will set you up for a thorough evaluation. A quick checkup is to see if you have scoliosis. For those that have scoliosis, we recommend a complete analysis. Our comprehensive assessment of scoliosis is charged at the same rate as a regular new patient. To avoid confusion, please get in touch with us to clarify these issues before your checkup. In short, with the quick checkup, there is no excuse! All you have to do is to drop by one of our centers and get evaluated. We will have you fill out a simple form and then proceed with the scoliosis exam.
This evaluation is through one of our chiropractors or physiotherapists. CSC’s chiropractors and physiotherapists may use a device known as an inclinometer to assist them in the evaluative of your child. We will provide you with an oral report along with advice at the end of the exam. If scoliosis is detected
Our Thorough Exam of the Scoliotic Patient
While the quick scoliosis check is at no charge, the scoliosis exam (also called the new patient exam) is a chargeable procedure. The new patient exam of a scoliotic patient is a detailed assessment of the spine and joints that identifies problematic issues. CSC offers this thorough assessment for new patients and patients that are going through therapy at competing centers. We aim to help you understand what needs to be done for faster results. We encourage you to bring in all your x-rays with you for this assessment. The scoliosis exam is better when combined with an evaluation of your current and previous x-rays. And if you have been treated at a competing center, it will help us provide us the details of therapies given and the frequency or number of sessions you have had.
We may need to send you an updated one for pateints who don’t have a current x-ray. CSC’s evidence-based scoliosis treatment requires updated x-ray for all adolescent scoliosis (aged 9) and juvenile scoliosis (ages 6-8). X-rays older than a few months may need repeating.
Do keep in mind that our chiropractors will pay attention to the smallest of details. Scoliosis is a three-dimensional disorder, and x-rays are only two-dimensional impressions. To the untrained eye or poorly knowledgeable clinician, the impact of this three-dimensional disorder is lost. That will not happen when one of our chiropractors evaluates you.
Why Our Methods of Spine Exam is Better?
Our scoliosis treatments are based on exam findings. The best scoliosis treatments are based on the best exams and evaluative processes used to identify the root cause. Our root-cause analysis method of investigation is deeply seated in how we do a scoliosis exam. When you step into one of our centers, you get the best and most comprehensive assessments and treatments. Please don’t take our word for it; visit us and compare us to others! Trust our experience and our methods. We can help.
How To Prepare For CSC’s Detlaied Scoliosis Examination?
All you got to do is to wear comfortable clothing. For females, we encourage pants or shorts. Would you mind not wearing a skirt? We may need to inspect your spine visually, and in such instances, we will have at least two clinical team members in the room, one being a female. If you are uncomfortable with a visual inspection of your spine, do let us know, and we will assess in a manner that doesn’t make you unformtable.
It is time to put an end to some doubts you may have. If you notice your child, friend, or loved one walking ’tilted’ with a bump or imbalance in their back structure, ask them to go and get a consult immediately or, even better, go the extra mile and bring them in for one. A consultation at Malaysia’s top-rated chiropractic center in KL is in high demand. We have the top-rated chiropractors in town.
Dr. Yama is our most senior doctor of chiropractic with over 24-years of experience treating the spine, joints, and scoliosis. He is an American chiropractor who moved to Malaysia in 2006. He is also our founder and director. Dr. Yama and his team of chiropractors and physiotherapists pay attention to the smallest detail. We will walk you through how a typical scoliotic patient gets their treatment at any of our centers.
What is Assessed During an Exam at CSC?
Our clinical teams may utilize some orthopedic tests to check for the stability of your spine and weight-bearing joints. Some of these tests may require you to perform certain motions, such as bending down to touch your feet or lifting your legs. We may even evaluate your shoulders, chest, thighs, legs, and feet. In short, you will get a comprehensive assessment of not just your spine but also the muscles, ligaments, and joints of your extremities.
With the assistance of our clinical physiotherapists, our doctors of chiropractic may even measure your leg lengths, assess the arches of your feet, and evaluate rib humping (if present) or curvature of your spine. If the tests are found to be positive, we will refer the patient out for X-ray imaging. In all honesty, there are not many hospitals that are well-equipped to produce good scoliosis radiographic imaging. Our centers have identified the few that do a good job and will make an appointment on your behalf so that you go and get them done at your convenience.
After getting the X-rays, patients would return to our center with their X-ray films, which our doctors will study in detail. Every aspect of the curvature and changes in the musculoskeletal structure must be identified and addressed. It takes a well-trained physician to analyze radiographic imaging well, and you can’t find any better-trained chiropractors than the ones at Chiropractic Specialty Center®. Our physiotherapists and chiropractors have undergone intensive training for scoliotic care.
CSC’s Treatment Plan is based on Accurate Exam Findings
The best possible treatment plan for you will then be prepared; incorporating specific strengthening and stretching exercises, along with the application of particular modalities on specific areas of the spine. Your progression will be regularly monitored. Every three to six months, another set of X-ray imaging may be needed to check for the progression of the curvature. Targeted scoliosis, specific home exercises customized to your needs, will be given. We will strongly encourage you to do these exercises, as they are part and parcel of the care we provide. Just because you do them at home does not make them less relevant.
The Importance of Being Complaint with CSC’s Prescribed Treatment Plan
Parents and caregivers play a vital role in ensuring this happens. As your healthcare providers, we will do everything in our power to bring you one step closer to recovery, but you must play your part too. The sole reason why some of our patients fail to manage their scoliosis progression is that of a lack of compliance with established treatment plans. Incidentally, the home exercises we provide you or your child are an integral part of the care you get from us. So, parents, please be patient; it may even be helpful to offer a reward for your loved one with their continued active participation. We have found supportive parents that provide gentle reminders and incentives to be more efficient in getting kids to commit.
Our treatments are systematic, pain-free, and are specific. We achieved a great amount of success in the treatment of scoliosis cases, and we don’t expect that to be changing anytime soon. Therefore, stop delaying and start your scoliotic care today. As the saying goes, “God helps those who help themselves.” Call us today for an accurate scoliosis exam in Malaysia today.
