The consequences of; ‘the current state of affairs’. Part two.

Part one; Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS): ‘the current state of affairs’.
The continuance of  Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS): ‘the current state of affairs’ part two.

The current situation shows that the problems within the Idiopathic scoliosis care are extensive and a concatenation of factors, maintained by the vicious circle in which it is situated.

This ‘hopeless’ situation will never lead to satisfactory results ( not for the patient), unless any structural long-term action will be taken.  Surprisingly quick and easy I found two evidence-based treatment programs during my research on scoliosis, who  both claim to prevent and reduce the onset of scoliosis over more than 20 years. Many (thousands of) children have been successfully treated for idiopathic scoliosis through early screening; neither medication, nor surgery.  Small detail, not available  in our country, only in Poland and Ukraine.

The question then arose to me ; ‘If it is so easy to get access to this  information, why isn’t it shared among others like policymakers,  professional colleagues, researchers etc.  Why is it kept as if it is classified information and why is it still hidden from patients suffering of scoliosis’?

These questions confirm the need of profound objective investigation in favour of the solution with respect to the current unsatisfactory methods of treatments if IS, so I will continue digging.


To be continued.

Next time the continuation of this research: solutions for the current state of affairs AIS.
