CLEAR scoliosis treatment has helped thousands of people from all around the world. Read what actual patients and their parents have to say about their experiences at a CLEAR Scoliosis Center!
CLEAR has a wonderful passion for seeking the cure for each patient. So caring for us! My lower back started with a 28 degree curve and I had pain in the middle of the curve. My neck was under a lot of strain. Now my neck feels really wonderful and the curve in my lower back is almost non-existent, and I have only minor lower back pain. CLEAR’s treatment is the cure! It’s the future of chiropractic care and the rest of the discipline needs to catch up!

The doctors at CLEAR are well experienced, qualified, co-operative, pleasant, caring, and kind. We are very happy with the results of treatment. The medical doctors we saw were not aware of any chiropractic treatment for scoliosis. This method is very effective for scoliosis.
The CLEAR doctors are very, very nice and informative. I feel great! I think CLEAR’s treatment is the best alternative to surgery.
The doctors at CLEAR are very nice. They make you feel very welcomed. My curve isn’t as big as it used to be. I can also breathe better than I used to. With CLEAR I have seen an improvement with my back. With other places I have been to, I didn’t see an improvement.

We found the doctors at CLEAR to be very informative, caring, personable, approachable, and supportive. I have good posture now!!! Woo-hoo!!! My confidence and enthusiasm have increased dramatically. Our orthopedic doctor prescribed a brace. He had no other suggestions or interest when we brought up alternate treatment ideas.
We love our CLEAR doctor! My daughter is standing taller and straighter. This is the best treatment for her in my opinion. CLEAR’s treatment makes more sense to me. Cutting open my daughter and putting rods in her back was not an option for us. I wish we had come here two years ago!
I really enjoyed my experience working with my CLEAR doctor. He did a great job. I think CLEAR’s treatment is an awesome concept, and it makes a lot of sense.
The CLEAR doctors are excellent; second-to-none. I experienced a 5 day transformation that left me feeling better overall. CLEAR is the best – very efficient and effective! We need more doctors to become certified in the CLEAR methods.
The CLEAR doctors are amazing, very enthusiastic and caring, which makes me excited to continue. I have been telling people how you can tell they love what they are doing, and truly want to make a difference. I love the high-fives! The CLEAR treatment was an invaluable experience for me, because a lot of the knowledge I gained I use every day and will continue to use all my life. I also felt a sense of connection I hadn’t felt before. I felt that there was someone I could ask all my questions that would give me a response specific to my body. I feel that I have more control over my life than I did before. I have never experienced anything like CLEAR before. I love the treatment, even though it is tough at times. I like to see the results and how pliable my spine really is.
The CLEAR doctors know a lot about how to help people. My CLEAR doctor is very good! Before treatment, I could not walk far without a lot of pain and my hip giving out. Now I have a lot less pain and hip dysfunction. CLEAR has helped me where others just wanted me to have surgery.
The CLEAR doctors are professionals! They have a very high knowledge about scoliosis, they are not fooling around trying things. They are dedicated to what they do. I have not had any pain after treatment. I feel more straightened in my back. I don’t feel I have bad posture any more. CLEAR’s treatment is good and effective, and it is the best that there is. It helps solve the real problem. I have had a good time at the clinic. I understand that to get results they have to be tough on me sometimes, but I would not change that – because I got the results I wanted!
We were very impressed with our CLEAR doctor. He was very kind, patient, respectful, patient, and knowledgeable. He quickly developed a rapport with our son, which led to mutual trust and respect. I particularly liked that he involved our son and sought his input throughout the process. He explained everything he was doing, why he was doing it, and what result he hoped to achieve. The treatment is long and sometimes uncomfortable, but our CLEAR doctor was always encouraging and focused on keeping our son engaged. It seems to me like the CLEAR doctors have a strong, respectful working relationship, which leads to fabulous clinics and creates a wonderful environment for the patients.
When we first received the diagnosis of scoliosis, we were concerned about the quality of life for our son. We were frightened that he would develop health concerns due to the potential compression of his rib cage. We also believed that surgery to correct the curve could lead to complications and seemed a potentially unreliable solution. We believe now that we have done the right thing for our child and the results support our decision. We are confident that we can maintain the results through the home exercise protocols and periodic visits to the clinic.
Our CLEAR doctor was great, very helpful and supportive. My daughter’s back improved as well as her posture. Just a pleasant place and people!
The CLEAR doctors are great, friendly and kind. I feel more comfortable. The treatment is very effective and painless.
The CLEAR doctors are very professional and serious about what they do. The attention to detail and passion for their work is important to me and I see it in them. CLEAR has figured it out and does correction correctly!
The CLEAR doctors are wonderful professionals. It was quite a leap of faith, but I am thankful I came. I have been very impressed with my results!
We are absolutely pleased! Our CLEAR doctor is fun, caring, and thorough. Amazing results! I couldn’t be happier.
I searched the internet looking for an alternative to surgery for treating severe scoliosis. The thought of surgery was terrifying, and research confirmed that surgery is not successful long term. I found the CLEAR Scoliosis Institute website, which led me to Dr. Scot, his clinic, and the Pettibon System. My own chiropractor was skeptical of the treatment program, so I put it off for a time, but I just could not get it out of my mind that I needed to go to the clinic, even if it was 4.5 hours from my home. As a 64-year old female, I felt like my only other option was surgery. How could therapy change my spine at this age? As I looked at other clinics in the program, I kept being directed back to Dr. Scot.
I am so glad I listened to my instincts. Thank you, God, for getting through my hard-headedness. In May of this year I took the leap of faith and made the appointment for a consult. I spent 2 weeks going through the Intensive Therapy phase of the treatment plan. At the end of the 2 weeks, we had corrected my curve 7 degrees. I was astounded at the correction, and the bonus was having LESS PAIN. I am now 4 months into my treatments. With the home therapy program and a monthly visit back to the clinic, I am ecstatic to say we have corrected my curve another 8 degrees -- a grand total of 15 degrees!
Dr. Scot is so dedicated to his patients. He works long hours inside and outside the clinic with ongoing education so that he can give us the tools to improve our spine health, and we honor him by doing our home therapy. The clinic is an open floor concept, which is engaging for interaction with other patients. We all work hard, support each other, and have a bit of fun doing so. Dr. Scot is a bit of a character and so is his main guy, Davin (never ask Davin how much time is left on the timer!). Georgette, the Office Manager, is such a sweet soul who keeps the clinic running smoothly and answers many of our concerns. I am so grateful to Dr. Scot, Davin and Georgette for their love and dedication to their patients. Words do not begin to convey my gratitude for their presence in my journey through scoliosis. They have given me 15 degrees of hope -- and counting.
Patient of Dr. Kang
Dr. Kang is nothing short of friendly, dependable and professional! I started seeing him prior to my pregnancy, as I was trying to get my body prepared for conception. I had not seen a chiropractor prior and have a mild case of scoliosis, which only became more painful as I got older and after delivery of my first child. Right away I liked how enthusiastic he was about ensuring that I was getting great care. He took time to show me the best ways to alleviate my back pain at home as well. Near the end of my third trimester, my baby boy was footling breeched. I let Dr. Kang know and right away he told me about the Webster technique, a non-invasive way to help my baby boy turn. After about two or three sessions, I was happy to visit my OB and find out that the baby had turned! They were not going to have to perform a painful inversion on me. I'm ecstatic, and he has a life-long client. It’s super easy to book appointments as well, he always makes himself available. I've even walked in without an appointment and he was happy to fit me in and get me back on my feet. Great big thanks to Dr. Kang for all his help and excellent client care!
My name is Crystal Burkhalter, and I am a thirty-two (32) year old female, originally diagnosed with scoliosis at age twenty-two (22). Initially, I did not have any problems with my diagnosis other than some discomfort in my mid-back. However, after a very serious car accident in 2012, I began to experience chronic pain in my mid-back and severe stiffness in my lower back. In an effort to combat the problem, I sought opinions from multiple orthopedists, who told me that my only option was surgical correction. Because I had a twenty-four (24) degree curve, all the physical activities that I enjoyed would be impossible to continue if I underwent surgery.
Giving up Pilates, weightlifting, hiking, kayaking, and other outdoor activities I love was simply not something I was willing to do. I did not believe that I should have to sacrifice the quality of my life to gain relief from my scoliosis. After conducting some internet research, I found the CLEAR Institute and knew that I wanted to find a chiropractor to treat my scoliosis. In Georgia, the drive to Columbus takes me two and one half (2 ½) hours one way. To undergo a single treatment, I have to spend a minimum of five (5) hours in the car.
After beginning treatment with Dr. Brodwyn last June, I am happy to report that I am now totally pain-free and have very little lower-back stiffness. Despite the distance and time commitment, I am dedicated to continuing my treatment with Dr. Brodwyn and his staff. I am a firm believer that if you are dedicated to the CLEAR protocol, surgery is not necessary to improve your quality of life.
