How does this product work and affect scoliosis?
Hormones and neurotransmitters are both well-known contributing factors to the onset and/or progression of idiopathic scoliosis.1 Neurotransmitters and hormones have significant roles in maintaining the proper neurological function and are involved in thousands of metabolic processes, including postural muscle tone and coordination. Accurate and noninvasive testing for neurotransmitters and hormones, therefore, is essential at determining the extent of imbalances, as well as identifying the most appropriate points of treatment intervention. Salivary hormone testing is a highly reliable and consistent alternative to measure hormones in a non-invasive way.2 Urinary neurotransmitter testing is an easy, noninvasive, and valid way to assess central nervous system activity.3
Questions About Testing
Does the test need to be repeated?
The recommended time frame at which to retest is shown in your report. However, you or your provider may or may not recommend retesting at a different interval depending upon your response to the nutrients.
Will my insurance cover the cost of the tests?
Some major medical insurances (not including Medicare, Medicaid, TriCare, and other Federal insurance plans) may reimburse you for the cost of the NeuroHormone test. Your provider may give you a prescription order for this testing that you can submit to your insurance along with your proof of payment.
This is subject to coverage on your particular policy. You may contact ScoliSMART for the appropriate CPT codes.
