Core Concepts has created several different programmes to cater for the different needs of short-term overseas visitors from the region to long-term local residents in Singapore. (www.coreconcepts.com.sg/
SpineCor brace was developed by The SpineCorporation Limited as a non-surgical treatment alternative to idiopathic scoliosis. In Singapore, scoliosis afflicts approximately 2-3% of the population, with a higher prevalence amongst girls. Scoliosis is the outcome of a progressive 3D deformation of the spine.
