Common Questions About Supplements
How long do you recommend taking the listed supplements?
Our chief concern at ScoliSMART is how these products may affect the outcomes of your child’s scoliosis during growth. However, once your child reaches skeletal maturity, or for Adult patients, your provider may recommend these products on an ongoing basis to address any non-spinal symptoms or genetic variants.
Will these products have any negative side effects?
The supplements we recommend are all-natural, organic, Kosher, and non-GMO. However, parents should discuss these supplements with their pediatrician if they are taking any prescription medications.
What can be expected once supplementation starts?
Although the primary goal of these supplements is to support scoliosis therapy, many parents notice positive improvements in their children’s behavior and focus as well.
Will my insurance cover the cost of the supplements?
Although health insurances do not typically cover supplements, many FSA or HSA accounts will reimburse you for them if your treating provider writes a letter of medical necessity.
Will taking the recommended supplements alone improve scoliosis?
No. The nutritional interventions may help prevent further curve progression, as well as improve treatment outcomes. The recommendations in this report are intended to be done in conjunction with a scoliosis-specific exercise program like ScoliSMART BootCamp or the Scoliosis Activity Suit.
What if taking pills is a problem?
Many of the supplements are available in liquid and chewable forms. Also, capsules can be opened and the powdered contents can be mixed in juices or applesauce.

How will this product help?
The MTHFR Support provides specialized absorbable nutrients necessary for neurotransmitter conversion and detoxification, both of which are found to be problematic for patients with scoliosis.2
How does this product work and affect scoliosis?
Active B vitamins serve as the converting enzymes that allow your body to produce and convert various hormones and neurotransmitters, many of which are associated with scoliosis development.3
By replacing these active B vitamin enzymes, your body can better produce the hormones and neurotransmitters it needs to optimize spinal muscle control and maintain optimal postural muscle memory.
