For a natural scoliosis treatment, a serious, high-end, alternative non-surgical therapy, but way more than a mere complementary therapy… something that actually works for even high end curves – even the ones that look more like a “Z” shape rather then the usual “S” shape… you need the ASMI (The Advanced Spinal Mobilisation Instrument) .
To get straight to it, the patient lies on a special slightly curved massage couch, the therapist uses the non-Surgical ASMI machine on them for 8 to 12 therapy sessions and the scoliosis curve reduces dramatically – As shown in these two videos:
The slightly longer answer is that when you look at a scoliosis curve from a distance, it looks like a curve, but when you examine it up very close, it looks more like a train wreck. Instead of train carriages shunted up, pushed to the side, twisted one way and another – it is vertebrae that are shunted up, pushed to the side, twisted one way and another.
The reason Scoliosis looks like a train wreck is that it is a train wreck ! – it’s fundamentally caused by a trauma injury, usually in childhood, that expresses itself during teenage growth spurts. There maybe genetic & dietary components as to how a child reacts to a trauma injury, but it at base, it’s a trauma injury and the good news is, it reacts to being treated like a trauma injury.
The ASMI (Advanced Spinal Mobilisation Instrument), sometimes quickly, sometimes over several sessions, bit by bit (or occasionally a lot by a bit) stretches the tight ligaments that have been holding the vertebrae in the wrong place since the trauma injury that set it all off. By using the Mobilisation mode and the Reflex mode – which stimulates (by tapping) the reflexes along the spine – the vertebrae move back towards their correct position.
In a few sessions this will reduce the curve to the point where the wedging will prevent the scoliosis from reducing anymore… for the time being. Wedging is where some vertebrae, usually at the worst point of the curve, have grown in a slight wedge shape – so the top and bottom are not parallel. The good news is that they got to be this shape by responding to the huge asymmetric pressures put upon them over the years and so now that the spine is a lot straighter and the pressure on these vertebrae are now a lot more even after the first round of ASMI treatments, they will respond – over time – to these new pressures and even out.
This phase of the treatment is a lot slower and requires an ASMI session once a month/once every 6 weeks for a few years till the bone modulation process, run by the osteoblast and osteoclast cells that create & destroy bone & ligament where needed and not needed, have done their job.
Weight lifters looking to build muscle work out once every two days, weight lifters looking to build bone density work out weekly.
You can think of it as bone is muscle in slow motion.
I have found that scoliosis tends to require long sessions: 3 hours each to achieve significant permanent changes, and that weekly or fortnightly sessions are best, but when a patient has flown in from abroad then treatment once every two days is used.
Vitamin C – which works well with the B Vitamins
The only thing missing from this list is vitamin E… the “unsung hero of bone health”
There has been quite a lot of correlation work on scoliosis and low levels of trace minerals selenium etc.
What else ? Long wave ultrasound (45 KHz – which is what dolphins use to communicate) …and also used at GoodBack
As you can see from the videos, the ASMI treatment is a serious life changing non-surgical alternative scoliosis treatment to either classic fusion or or the newer VBT surgery, for many cases of Scoliosis.
The time needed and the price are equivalent to getting a large back tattoo.
This treatment is available in St Albans UK.
