Questions To Ask Your Doctor

The purpose of this section is to help you understand how to approach your doctor, know what questions to ask, and be aware of potential warning signs that could indicate that a doctor might not be the best possible choice for pursuing scoliosis treatment.  When speaking with a doctor, always be courteous and respectful but direct; trust your instincts and intuition.  You should never feel like you are being pressured into making a decision you are not comfortable with, and all of your questions should be answered to your satisfaction before you proceed with the treatment you have chosen.

Below you can find a list of sample questions to ask your doctor.  Every question might not apply in every case; you should read through this list and select the ones that are important to you.  Furthermore, you should take a moment before meeting with your doctor and write down any additional questions, not on this list, that you would like answered.

"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.
