Intensive Care Treatment Plan

Intensive Care Treatment Plan

(Recommended if the patient lives more than 45 minutes from the treatment center)

The recommended treatment plan option for a a scoliosis intervention program is a 1 week "Intensive Care" treatment plan for spinal curvatures 25 degrees or less, and a 2 week plan for moderate to severe curves.  Intensive care treatment for scoliosis generally provides excellent treatment results, in the least amount of time, and with minimal disruption to the entire family's daily schedule.  It is characterized by 6 or 12 days of treatment with each day's treatment time lasting up to 4-5 hours a day and often 25-30 total hours of treatment over the course of each week.  Following the intensive care treatment plan, the patient will be provided a comprehensive, customized home rehabilitation protocol designed to maintain the gains achieved during the treatment period, promote further gains in the correction of their spinal curvature, and help the patient increase spinal stability during the upcoming periods of growth spurts.

"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.
