What Is The Plan If This Approach Doesn T Work


It’s always good to have a backup plan. Especially when working with cases of scoliosis in teenagers, who still have some potential for growth remaining, if one method doesn’t achieve the expected results, you cannot go back in time and attempt a different approach. If you decide to pursue scoliosis bracing, and it does not prevent the scoliosis from getting worse, will you decide to have surgery, or pursue an alternative approach? Similarly, is your chiropractor open to the possibility that if chiropractic care doesn’t work, you might need a referral to an orthopedic surgeon for bracing or surgery? It’s best to discuss and consider these possibilities in advance, so that no unpleasant or unexpected surprises arise.

The primary concern of your doctor should be ensuring that you receive the best possible care – not “chiropractors versus orthopedic surgeons,” but “us versus scoliosis.” If your medical doctor refuses to work together with your chiropractor (or vice versa!), you may want to consider switching doctors.

"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.
