Align Clinic is proud to announce our cooperation with the Shanghai Charity Foundation in an effort to provide scoliosis screening and bracing to poor western Chinese students. In a massive effort to find and correct scoliosis in its young population, the Shanghai Charity Foundation has begun an effort to screen more than 35,000 students beginning by the end of the year. Align Clinic was invited to attend a ceremony in Shanghai where a grant was established and plans were laid out in order to bring in the doctors, specialists, and equipment necessary for this massive endeavor. During the ceremony, the Shanghai Charity Foundation asked Align Clinic to assist in the training of local orthotists in the manufacturing of WCR braces which will be used to treat those students who suffer from scoliosis. At the ceremony Grant Wood was named Director of International Consulting for Scoliosis Bracing. If you’d like to read the article at the Shanghai Charity Foundation’s website click the link below.

Align Clinic has recently agreed to partner with ChengYing Medical Technology Co., Ltd. of Shanghai, China to provide the WCR scoliosis brace to the Chinese population. We will be in Shanghai, China from April 19-25, 2017 for evaluation and fitting of patients with scoliosis. If anyone would like to be seen for a consultation during this visit, please give our office a call at (650) 375-2231. We are very excited about this new venture on a new continent and our ability to bring quality conservative scoliosis treatment to even more patients than before.
