About Discovery Scoliosis

We Love Curvy Spines

Our Mission

We’re here to help families recognize, understand, and manage childhood and adult-onset scoliosis. We do so by building awareness about the importance of early detection and intervention of scoliosis. When it comes to scoliosis management, we prioritize innovative, team-oriented, patient-centred treatment options that bridge the gap between diagnosis and surgery if needed.

We’re driven by

a story that countless people affected by scoliosis experience

Research and technology around non-surgical scoliosis management have advanced greatly over the past decade. Yet, many patients and their families can feel overwhelmed when navigating scoliosis treatment options.


Often, when a spinal curvature is found via x-ray, patients have to wait for months to see an orthopaedic surgeon. This can leave many unanswered questions about what can be done in the meantime.

Our goal is to alleviate that. We want to make sure you have access to the most up-to-date options available so you can receive the scoliosis care you need as soon as possible.

Education is Power

We make sure you feel informed about your condition and treatment options. The more you know, the better your outcome.

Collaboration is Key

We openly collaborate with other healthcare professionals to make sure you receive the thorough care you need.

Never Stop Learning

As professionals, we’re always expanding our knowledge. We continuously educate ourselves on new developments in our field so we stay at the cutting edge of treatment options.
