Can scoliosis be cured?

Scoliosis is complex. The cause of scoliosis is unknown in 80% of those patients, and there is no cure, but there is hope. Without treatment, curves tend to progress at 1 degree a year.

What results should I expected from my CLEAR™ treatment?

Each scoliosis us unique. Each curve will respond differently. Scoliosis involves muscles, soft tissues, discs, ligaments, brain and bones of the spine. They develop patterns over time to offset the scoliosis. As with anything, it takes time to change these patterns, particularly if the scoliosis has been present for a great deal of time.

Is there scoliosis in the elderly?

A primary goal of treating the elderly who have scoliosis is to assist in having the best possible quality of life as long as possible. CLEAR™ protocols and scoliosis exercise programs have demonstrated remarkable success clinically in helping people with adult scoliosis. Patients commonly report reductions in pain, improvement in energy levels, and enhanced breathing, sleeping, walking, or sitting. Our goal is to reduce and stabilize scoliosis to produce desired results.

A published study indicated that there is a scoliosis rate of 68% in a healthy adult population, with an average age of 70.5 years. (Spine 2005) Scoliosis in the elderly usually arises due to adult scoliosis, degenerative scoliosis, or traumatic scoliosis.

The options for older people who have degenerative scoliosis are limited. The CLEAR™ protocols demonstrate substantial hope in helping to reverse the degenerative changes, restore function, and reduce pain ultimately impacting the quality of an individual’s life. This is a non-invasive approach resulting in improved measurable outcomes.

Traumatic scoliosis should be treated as soon after an injury as possible. Timeliness of treatment offers a higher probability of long-term success.
