Ever walk into a room you’ve never been in before and know your in the right place. You know that you were meant to be there. This is exactly how I felt walking into the Scoliosis Correction Center on Hungerford St. in CT. After several years of searching for an alternative treatment for scoliosis my prayers have been answered.I am 39 yrs. old and I have scoliosis. I’ve had a Harrington rod fused to my spine for 24 yrs. Fortunately I have been able to avoid any major complications. However I still get nagging pains once in a great while and deal with the physical limitation due to fused rod.
My motivation for visiting the Scoliosis Correction Center was not for my own personal reasons. Julia my daughter who is 14 yrs. old has battled scoliosis most of her life. Through my experience with scoliosis I was able to detect her scoliosis early on. When Julia was 9 yrs. old she was braced with a Boston Brace for a short time which failed to help any. Shortly after brace was removed she became a candidate for growing rod which served as an internal brace. The concept of the rods sounded reasonable. However she had go for surgery every 8 months to extend these rods.
Through alot of pain, medication, and missed time at school we came to a crossroad. Julia had grown out of her rods and had to decide on the next step. The Dr’s had suggested spinal fusion which we refused simply as we felt she wasn’t done growing. Her rods were removed and over a short time she got worse. I started to research other options, and there aren’t many. Then one day I came across the treatment methods used at the Scoliosis Correction Center. The concept seemed to fit as it is not invasive and life changing as surgery. My husband and I did our homework as the the concept seemed to good to be true.
Our first step was to visit The Scoliosis Correction Center in Hartford, CT. We visited the Center and met with Dr. Hersh, and immediately we knew we were in the right hands as his motivation for the treatment had stemmed from the same reasons as ours. Julia began treatment in Jan. 2012 when she began treatment her curve was 78 degrees up top and 80 degrees on the bottom. After her first day of treatment we noticed a difference. After ten days of treatment we were amazed. Julia’s had improved to 74 degrees up top and 66 on the bottom. Julia’s energy had increased, her postured had improved, and she grew a couple of inches.
IT WORKS!! Thank you to such wonderful people that have helped us in the Center. You have changed our lives in so many wonderful ways. Our paths have crossed for a reason I will be sure to pass on the good news and share our experience. Thank you for all that you have done.
