Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS): ‘The current state of affairs’.

Generally spoken, scoliosis is an underestimated problem. Worldwide 280 million patients are suffering of scoliosis and in the future it will further increase by natural population growth. That is not the only reason for the explosive increase of AIS patients, it is also as a result of other factors.
 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.
Revealing the etiology of AIS, is the best base to start finding long term solutions. Without this ‘science’, the cycle will never be broken and all problems still remain the same.

At present, reintroduction of school screening is meaningless, since there is no ‘conservative’ treatment     combating scoliosis effectively. All existing conservative therapies are symptom-fighters and don’t address   the cause of scoliosis, which is one of the reasons why AIS is recurrent. 
 As a results of these conclusions the waiting lists in hospitals will further increase, there will be more operations, more children will be exposed tosevere health risks and school screening will always remain debatable.
Professor Ludwig van Rijn, head of orthopedic department Maastricht UMC + and author of the article: ‘currently screening is certainly of great use’, and emphasizes: ‘The consequences of abolition on the screening are now starting to become clear. At present, children come to the clinic with severe curves. Severe back disorders are not noticed in time’.
Due to the abolition of school screening, children diagnosed with AIS, are nowadays most of the time discovered by coincidence. This results in an alarming increase of the number of children with large curves, which appears on the first consultation with their physician. It is too late for conservative treatment and mostly surgery is the only option.

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

‘Fresh view blog topics’ on adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS)

Last week’s edition of the first published article; 'Preface', has been received with great interest.
Many viewers became followers, which emphasizes that the discussion of scoliosis treatment is a
big issue and ‘very hot’. It also gives a clear signal from society that there is an urgent need for
independent ‘Fresh views’ on scoliosis treatments.

Because of this big amount of visitors, we decided to upgrade our site immediately, for further
expanding and providing more information.
We’re informing you that our site is currently in
maintenance, and will be ready in the following weeks, you will be informed by a temporary blog.

The upcoming ‘Fresh view blog topics’ on adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) include:
• AIS: ‘The current state of affairs’.
• The magnitude of the problems identified.
• The limitations of conservative treatments.
• Editorials about the alternative prophylactic treatments.
• School Screening: 'Abolish or enact’.
• Cost analysis of conservative treatment methods versus alternative treatment methods.

All these ‘Fresh views topics’ and more to come, will contain information obtained from our
independent research on Scoliosis:‘A fresh perspective'©.

To be continued.

The current scoliosis treatment has caused me great concerns; many people have been and still are, exposed to many unnecessary abuses within the scoliosis care.

The professional conservative methods diverge enormously. Most treatments end up in severe operations.

At a certain moment in my daughter’s life, just before her surgery, I discovered the existence of two alternative scoliosis treatments that prevent such kind of surgery. 
Neither medication nor surgery would have been necessary in my daughter's case, nor would it be in so many others.
Because of this discovery and out of private discontent the idea arose to start my own research.
I studied the 2 books of the alternative scoliosis treatments and came to rather startling conclusions.

In the following articles of my blog, I will share and explain the conclusions of every step of my research with you.
