Scoliosis

There is a CLEAR™ Difference in Scoliosis Treatment

The Reality of Scoliosis

– It affects approximately 4.5% of the population
– Many cases of scoliosis will continue to progress
– Even a small curvature can cause breathing problems
– Bracing will not correct scoliosis
– Scoliosis can continue to get worse after spinal fusion

Treatment Introduction

What makes the CLEAR™ Treatment Protocol unique from any other
treatment method?

Unlike surgery and bracing, CLEAR™ certified Chiropractors utilize special equipment and techniques that have been developed specifically for scoliosis treatment that consists of three stages, what we like to call the “mix, fix, and set”.

The “Mix” stage is the vibrating traction, or V/T. Certain vibrational frequencies have the effect of relaxing the tendons, ligaments, and intervertebral discs. This vibration is very beneficial in treating scoliosis, due to the “bow string” effect of the ligaments & tendons and the disc wedging that occurs in the concavity of the curve.

The “Fix” stage begins with specific chiropractic adjustments. All of the adjustments are specific & unique to each patient’s x-ray. This precision adjusting technique is different than the traditional adjustments performed in the majority of chiropractic clinics because of the great deal of time required to master & apply this technique, it is used by only the most advanced chiropractic spinal specialists. Adjustments are designed for each patient from 41 different measurements and 23 different angles.

The “Set” stage of the CLEAR Scoliosis Treatment Protocols consists of exercise therapy designed to strengthen the postural muscles responsible for maintaining the achieved correction. Spinal weighting & whole-body vibration therapy combine to re-train the brain’s patterns of walking, standing, and relating to gravity. This active re-training process is a vital component of ensuring long-term results.

Scoliosis is an abnormal sideways curvature of the spine. It begins as a postural distortion and may become a permanent deformity. Allowed to advance, it may interfere with the lungs, heart and many other vital organs.

Three Causes

  1. Congenital genetic predisposition
  2. Habitual behavioral routines
  3. Idiopathic unknown cause

Regardless of cause, early detection can be helpful.

Obvious Clues

An alert parent may notice that a high shoulder or low hip make clothing fit poorly. Or uneven shoe wear offers a clue. Back and leg pains may develop but are often dismissed as “growing pains.”

Wait and See?

Allowed to run its course, scoliosis may often worsen. Severe cases may involve unsightly bracing or surgery that attaches steel rods, forcing the spine to straighten.

Natural Approach

A schedule of specific chiropractic adjustments may help improve the function and structure of the spine. As muscles are retrained and strengthened, posture may improve. Bring your child in so we can discuss your concerns and explore the possibilities.
