SCOLIOSIS TREATMENT WITHOUT SURGERY
The purpose of Lucía’s Foundation is the scoliosis treatment without surgery, making use of it when necessary and as indicated by the Doctors in Medicine. Before reaching that point, scoliosis can be treated by slowing the progression, even reducing the curves and improving the quality of life of the person who suffers from it.
Unfortunately it is not cured, but surgery can be avoided with a normal quality of life.
Shortly before turning 16 years old, we discovered Lucía had very severe Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis with more than 50º Cobb angle. If the curves had continued growing, the surgery would have been imminent and the probability of this happening was very high because her Risser was then between 1 and 2.
Lucía and us, her parents, wanted to avoid surgery and found an alternative treatment.
