A warm welcome to St Jude’s Clinic website.
SJC targets Medically Unexplained Physical Symptoms – MUPS, Please review the tabs to see who is attracted to St Jude’s.
The SJC approach both attractive and empowering because of its simplicity, yet it is the simplicity which makes it hard to believe. How does changing behavior / positions affect all these conditions, it’s very unusual model when compared to the ‘sophisticated’ approaches used in traditional care.
What you will see and read though from the SJC cases tab, are examples of real people and representative of several hundred cases – Bowel Menstrual Fatigue Scoliosis etc.
Here is a new approach incorporating logical methods to quality of life issues including postural deformity. The SJC model adds a further option now to the Pharmaceutical, Bracing, Surgical and exercise based model of Care – Incorporating daily behaviors into nightly and daily situations to make a difference to quality of life
It is amazing what can be achieved in a relatively short period of time.
May it be a refreshing change to what you are accustomed to and an empowering way forward.

SJC does not use bracing or surgery and has special guidelines for care (see the About Us page).

The SJC behavioural model identifies key behaviors to bring about the following case results. The benefits are further described in the Tab about Dr Dahdah.

Why a Non-Surgical Treatment for Scoliosis?
“A medical indication for spinal fusion surgery does not exist, except in extreme cases” – Weiss, Moramarco & Moramarco (2013)
In the words of Dr Weiss and his colleagues, spinal fusion is unnecessary in most cases. It is not a cure, and the spine can continue to twist and worsen beyond the
The invasive procedure may also lead to an adverse range of complications such as rod breakage, infections, increased deformity, and chronic pain. This may see the
patient requiring repeated surgeries thorough the rest of one’s life.
Safer alternatives should definitely be considered where possible, before an irreversible decision to undergo surgery is made.
Why a Non-Bracing Treatment for Scoliosis?
“Adolescence is recognized as a difficult psychological period in its own right and when it is compounded by the biopsychosocial effects of scoliosis and the brace treatment it can produce stress” – Sapountzi-Krepia et al. (2006).
Bracing is a highly aggressive procedure. It has effects on the mind as well as causing a lack of use effect on the muscles of the body. It aims to prevent the spine from worsening by holding it in place during a child’s growth spurt. Once the brace is removed, ample evidence suggests as high as 75% of cases worsen, in addition to the adverse psychological impact from bracing. The child experiences significant stress, damaged body image, and perceived self-limitations in sport, physical activities, and social events.
