Scoliosis Misconceptions and Information on Scoliosis

Contrary to medical misinformation, scoliosis correction is effective and predictable through chiropractic care. Scoliosis is from the Greek word σκωλοσς [skoliosis] which means “crookedness”. According to Taber’s Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary, 18th ed. [F.A. Davis Co.: Philadelphia, PA, 1997; p.1727], scoliosis is a lateral curvature of the spine. It usually consists of two curves: a primary abnormal curve, and a compensatory curve in the opposite direction. Some chiropractors tend to use the term “scoliosis” to describe the presence of any, if even slight, lateral curvature of the spine. However, such a loose definition is a common misconception.

Spinal Surgery isn't the answer to scoliosis

By Teagin Maddox, New York

There are millions of people worldwide suffering from scoliosis. Thousands of children will have dangerous and unnecessary spinal fusion surgery every year because parents are told that surgery is the only way to treat scoliosis. In fact, that was part of a Gannett News Service report published this summer in the St. Cloud Times.

"I struggled with back pain for 4 years prior to seeking help for my Scoliosis. I decided after visiting Dr. Breidenbach that it was worth the financial commitment and time dedication to go through the CLEAR scoliosis treatment. My pain throughout the 4 years was more of an extreme discomfort and occasional immobilization from immense pain spikes. My biggest problems occurred when I was on my feet for long periods of time, sitting for too long, and any type of consecutive lifting. It was emotionally draining because no matter what stretches, exercises or methods I tried, nothing seemed to work.
My pain level now, after completing the 4 month treatment program and continuing my at-home protocol, is extremely low and very manageable. The only time I experience discomfort is after very long days on my feet, which still only results in minor soreness. I am so much happier and less stressed about everyday activities, and can do so much more than before. My Cobb angle also improved from 13.8 degrees down to 4 degrees (71% improvement).
I would suggest the CLEAR scoliosis Center of La Crosse to anyone that experiences pain and dysfunction with scoliosis. The whole staff was extremely kind and supportive, while also maintaining a high level of professionalism. I am so happy to have a normal life without the constant annoyance and discomfort of pain from scoliosis.
