The short answer is that that patient lies on a special slightly curved massage couch, the therapist uses the non-Surgical ASMI machine (The Advanced Spinal Mobilisation Instrument) 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’s vertebrae that are shunted up, pushed to the side, twisted one way and another. The ASMI (Advanced Spinal Mobilisation Instrument), sometimes quickly, sometimes over several sessions, bit by bit (or occasionally a lot by a lot) stretches the tight ligaments that have been holding the vertebrae in the wrong place since the trauma injury that set it all off, using the Mobilisation mode and then, using the Reflex mode, stimulates (by tapping) the reflexes along the spine and the vertebrae move back towards their correct position.
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.
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.
Prices: The price for a 3 hour treatment session for scoliosis is £200 (£140 for a standard 90 minute session for non-specific back pain which the ASMI is also brilliant for: 20 years of Sciatica , 6 years of Chronic Pain after a Road Accident )
Special offer: Half price video treatments – If you would like to be in a video similar to the ones shown above to consist of : a before & after interview, a few clips of the treatment and a series of the before & afters from each session, then the price is £100 for a 3 hour session.
Evening and Weekend appointments available.
