MOBILIS Spinal clinic is highly effective in the conservative treatment of spinal deformities in the region.
Through decades of experience and regional reputation in the orthotic treatment of spinal column especially in conditions like Scoliosis and Kyphosis, MOBILIS spine clinic known as one of the best spine deformity conservative orthotic solution provider with most advanced innovative techniques.
The prerequisite for successful orthotic treatment of all spinal deformities is an early diagnosis and a multi-disciplinary team.
More than 25 years of experience in the spine deformities with clinicians from Germany, evidence-based practice and most modern technologies and concepts makes us unique in the region.
Unique treatment protocols with proven techniques changed hundreds of youngster’s lives. They are now able to stand with their straight spine and confident in healthy living.
A multi-disciplinary team approach with members includes treating orthopaedic physician, Schroth therapist and orthotist plays an essential role for successful treatment of any spine deformities. Periodically follow up with the doctor, regular physiotherapy, and scheduled visit to the orthotist for orthotic adjustments facilitates a successful outcome. Supportive family members are also an integral part of the team to support the patient psychologically and to motivate them to lead a confident lif
Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature in the spine. A side bend which is simultaneously associated with a rotation of individual vertebral bodies. The ribs connected to the vertebral bodies also rotate, that forms so-called rib hump in the area of thoracic spine. The rotation, produces a lumbar spine area also called the lumbar bulge. The most common type of scoliosis is known as Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) which develops during the adolescent growth spurt and accounts for around 85% of the cases.Most of scoliosis case have no known cause. It affects 10 times more in Girls than boys which can be treated with good outcome.
Early detection of such deformities are important. The restoration of abnormal spine shape is much favourable by a Scoliosis brace and physiotherapy (Schroth therapy) which is most eective during growth stage.Non treatment may lead to Significantly reduced physical mobility and efficiency, Reduction of life quality,Early degeneration of the spine,Misloaded intervertebral discs can cause irritation that leads to sensory disorders in arms and severe pain, Mental stress because of deformed Aesthetic look.
Scoliosis spine curves are classified based on which of the three regions of the spine is affected – the upper thoracic, main thoracic or thoracolumbar/lumbar. It is also important to know whether the deformity is structural or non-structural. The spine specialist classifies the curve types before the patient visits MOBILIS. The diagnosing physician also measure the severity of angle [Cobb angle] to decide whether the patient require conservative or surgical treatment.
Mobilis clinicians uses unique classification systems for the correction method which is proven and successful over several years.
The deformed spine is assessed by an experienced Certified Orthotic spine specialist once your doctor has diagnosed and prescribed a custom scoliosis brace. Accurate measurements are very important for our clinicians to achieve perfect correction and fitting. This also will help on force directions which will influence the final outcome.
A spine X-Ray is mandatory during the orthotic assessment.
MOBILIS uses the latest white light 3D scanner to capture the actual measurements. The scan is then converted to digital 3D shape where our clinicians can do necessary corrections before it is sent for the manufacturing process.
MOBILIS spine clinic offers SCOLI3D brace – a computer aided designed [CAD] brace – after a thorough scoliosis orthotic assessment. Based on the proven principles of world leading scoliosis researchers, MOBILIS is proud to develop our own design. The SCOLI3D brace treatment is designed to account for all the aspects of scoliosis curve. Each brace is individually designed and manufactured. The goal of the treatment is a gradual elongation and straightening of the spine.
Most of the manufacturing process of SCOLI3D are digitally routed, right from the 3D patient scan, Our CAD designers design the brace digitally then send the file to 7 Axis robotic carving for manufacturing the spine model. Achieving a tolerable spine correction with corrective force, rotation correction, counterforce is carefully planned during CAD design. These process helps help us take care of every detail in precision.
During trial fitting, fit is checked very carefully, small corrections are made and the patient gets time to try the corset after each change. The Specialist has to check and assess these changes afterwards. Only then an optimal fit can be guaranteed at home.
After two weeks of wear, we arrange a control appointment, during which the pressure zones can be checked and, if necessary, padded.
MOBILIS scoliosis clinic insists that our clients undergo a year-long follow up programme for the best outcome. The programme includes follow up consultations and growth adjustments which is necessary once the curve is progressing.
Our clinicians follow a bespoke programme which is proven and effective. We integrate a tiny wearable time tracking sensor inside the brace after obtaining the patient’s consent which will allow us to track the actual wearing time of the brace. This also helps us to plan and guide the best treatment plan till the next follow up visit.
A strict therapy programme should be followed and monitored for optimal outcome.
Kyphosis is an excessive outward curve of the spine which results in an abnormal rounding of the upper back. This condition is also known as roundback or hunchback. Kyphosis can occur at any age, but is common during adolescence. The condition usually stops progressing once a child is older and has stopped growing.
Kyphosis caused by poor posture (postural kyphosis) does not need any treatment. It can usually be corrected by improving your posture and performing strengthening exercises.
If a child has kyphosis as a result of abnormally shaped vertebrae (Scheuermann’s kyphosis), they may need custom brace therapy combined with physiotherapy. Surgery is often required for children born with congenital kyphosis.
Your treating physician decides the treatment based on factors such as person’s age, gender, severity of the curve, how flexible the curve is etc.
Teenagers with mild to moderate kyphosis are often prescribed to wear a custom kyphosis brace. The brace is worn while the bones are still growing and this will prevent the curve from getting worse.
Wearing a brace may feel uncomfortable during the first few days. However, most users get used to them after a while. MOBILIS designers make sure that the braces are designed to be convenient, aesthetically pleasing and comfortable, so the person can confidently do a range of physical activities with the brace.
The users need to wear the brace until the spine stops growing, which is usually around age 14 or 15 years old which will be decided by the treating physician and MOBILIS Orthotist Bracing isn’t usually recommended for adults who have stopped growing because it won’t correct the position of the spine.
