I was diagnosed with Scoliosis when I was 13 years old, and I didn’t do anything until the age of 25. My curve got really bad, and when I first came here, it was 84 degrees. Now, I’ve been coming to Dr. Hersh for two years, and now it’s 64 degrees which is a lot better.
I like coming here because the doctor is very nice to me, and everyone is nice here. I mean, the treatment is painful. I cannot say it’s not painful, but at least you get results after that. Once I’m done and do the after X- rays and I see the improvement that I did, I really feel happy. I would recommend it to anyone to come here, especially if you have really bad scoliosis like mine.
Just come here, and you’ll find someone to take care of you.
Yeah, I’ll go first. Hi. My name is Mia, and I’m from the Caribbean island of Dominca. I started out with a 43 degree curve, and after 2 weeks, it went down to 32. I had less pain, a lot less pain in my back, and it has been [inaudible 0:23].
I’m Mia’s mom. I must say that the six weeks of treatment I feel very happy. My daughter was in constant pain in Dominica. I’m just so relieved to see that she’s so much straighter. She had one leg longer than the other, and that gave quite a bit of pain. Returning with her learning self-management and how to handle and manage scoliosis, and I just want to say it’s been great. I’m happy I called the Scoliosis Center.
