Hey, I'm Ashley Brewer, the Executive Director of CLEAR Scoliosis Institute. I'm excited to introduce our brand new podcast, Life Beyond the Curve. Here at CLEAR, we are a nonprofit organization committed to providing essential support to people affected by scoliosis. And that's actually where the whole idea behind this podcast came from. Scoliosis is when the spine curves to the side more than 10 degrees, and includes rotation. Now it affects approximately two to three percent of the population, depending where you look. In most cases, scoliosis has no known cause. Unfortunately, when most people are diagnosed with scoliosis, they are simply told to watch and wait. You might be asking yourself, wait for what? Wait until their curve has reached the point of needing surgery. But here at CLEAR Scoliosis Institute, we know that there is a better way to treat scoliosis. Our founder, Dr. Dennis Woggon, has dedicated much of his life to advancing the science of chiropractic and helping chiropractors care for complex spinal disorders.
When he founded CLEAR in 2000, this was his main goal, but he was really quickly surprised by the number of people with scoliosis who came to him for help, and so the focus of the organization shifted. We are now one of the only nonprofit organizations devoted to noninvasive scoliosis treatment and research. Now CLEAR Scoliosis Institute itself does not provide treatment to people living with scoliosis. Rather, we have developed an innovative and specialized chiropractic treatment protocol that improves scoliosis, reduces chronic pain, and alleviates related health conditions through customized treatment plans. One of the biggest benefits to our approach to treating scoliosis is that it involves an exercise-based protocol where patients learn custom designed exercises that they can actually do in the comfort of their own home. Now, the goal of life beyond the curve is to give you practical tips and tangible action steps that you can begin to implement and improve your life and your confidence.
We'll explore topics like bracing, the psychological side effects of scoliosis, how to be confident with your curve, is scoliosis genetic, scoliosis surgery side effects, and much, much more. Every week we'll hear from a CLEAR-certified doctor whose primary goal is to help support you in living your life to its fullest, whether you're an existing CLEAR patient, have recently been diagnosed with scoliosis, have questions that need answers, or you're just simply interested in learning more about scoliosis. We hope you'll join us each week on Life Beyond the Curve as we interview experts in the industry, answer your pressing questions, and empower you to take control of your scoliosis diagnosis. We hope you'll join us and discover that there truly is life beyond the curve!
