What Are The Chances Of Success


No method of scoliosis treatment has a 100% success rate. Scoliosis is perhaps the most complex spinal condition that a doctor can work with. We know relatively little about all of the causes and factors that influence scoliosis. If your doctor appears over-confident, this could be a warning sign. A good doctor will be honest and realistic about what to expect, and what the chances of success might be.

With some programs, the degree of improvement is influenced by the degree of participation on your part. Even the best-designed brace in the world does not help a patient who refuses to wear it. Similarly, exercises are only beneficial if they are performed regularly. Be sure to have an honest conversation regarding the level of commitment and dedication that you are willing to dedicate to your chosen treatment method; if you do not have the time required to follow through, it may be better to select a different approach.

"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.
