I think that any advancement in the treatment of scoliosis is an important stride in treating this debilitating disease. In my own practice I have seen one or two cases of scoliosis close to almost 70 degrees that went untreated. These were patients in their mid twenties or thirties that didn't have any outlet for treatment options. They should have had Harrington Rods put in at an earlier age but their condition was undiagnosed.
I think that any treatment of scoliosis that speeds up the healing process and is not as invasive treatment as the Harrington Rod is a huge stride forward. I also think natural approach to healing is way above than any specific medical technique and the combination of the two will give the patients the biggest benefit possible.
