CLEAR is committed to helping people with scoliosis around the world by serving as a leader in chiropractic scoliosis treatment, raising education & awareness, and publishing scientific research. To fulfill our purpose, we need your help! Here are a few ways you can get involved and support CLEAR’s mission.
As a non-profit organization, the CLEAR Scoliosis Institute depends upon the support of people like you to help us achieve our goals. Your 100% tax-deductible donation will be used to advance our priorities like scoliosis research, doctor trainings, and providing financial support to deserving patients through our Family Fund.

It makes sense for orthopedic surgeons and medical doctors to be skeptical about the chiropractic treatment of scoliosis. The scientific evidence available suggests that what most chiropractors do has little benefit in the management of scoliosis cases. The CLEAR Scoliosis Institute recognizes this fact, and we are committed to improving the quality of chiropractic scoliosis treatment and the level of evidence behind it. We recognize that bracing and surgery play important roles in helping people with scoliosis to live full and productive lives. Our goal is to provide more choices and more options for people who decide that they would like to do something besides watching & waiting, bracing, or surgery.
We are happy to share information about the CLEAR protocols with all of our colleagues in the healthcare industry, co-manage scoliosis patients with them, and participate in research endeavors together. The lecture portions (Parts 1 & 2) of the CLEAR Scoliosis Seminar Series, sponsored by Parker University of Dallas, Texas, are available online and may be taken by any healthcare professional.
Doctors of chiropractic who have attended the online seminar are then eligible to sign up for the hands-on workshop (Part 3), which is the first step in achieving CLEAR Certification. If you believe your chiropractor might be interested in learning more about how to help people with scoliosis, please encourage them to contact the CLEAR Scoliosis Institute for more information.
So far, the CLEAR Scoliosis Institute has sponsored walks, golf tournaments, marathons, free scoliosis screenings, women’s health events, and many other events, all aimed at raising awareness of scoliosis. Many people do not realize that scoliosis is the most common spinal deformity affecting our children, and the prevalence of scoliosis only increases with age. Yet many times, when most parents are told their son or daughter has scoliosis, it is the first time they may have heard of it. With your help, we can encourage and inspire people to be more aware of their posture and spinal health, and catch more cases of scoliosis early, when they are easier to manage and more likely to result in a successful long-term outcome, rather than a permanent disability or deformity.
CLEAR has created guides, documents, PowerPoints, and videos to help with scoliosis screenings, community events, and health fairs. Contact us today for more information on how CLEAR can support your efforts to raise scoliosis awareness in your community!
