SPRYTE Communications, a healthcare public relations agency headquartered in Philadelphia, made a donation to Shriners Children’s Philadelphia’s Scoliosis program recently in recognition of the agency’s fifth anniversary.
More than 2,400 scoliosis patients are treated at Shriners Children’s Philadelphia each year. Many travel locally and internationally to be seen by Shriners’ orthopedic specialists.
“Because most causes are unknown, early detection of scoliosis through routine screenings is key to providing the best possible outcomes,” says Joshua Pahys, MD, Shriners’ orthopedic spine surgeon. “Some scoliosis cases will just need to be watched; others will need physical therapy, bracing or surgical procedures to stop the curve from progressing,” he explains.
Focused on healthcare and social service providers, SPRYTE’s public relations client list includes academic medical centers, community hospitals, independent medical practices and hospice, homecare and palliative care providers. Supporting multi-location organizations is one of SPRYTE Communications’s specialties.
