One of the things that separates us from other clinics is, number one, we only do scoliosis treatment here nothing else. We only do intensive care treatment which we feel gets the best initial results. The patient can then go home and do most of the home protocol to continue their progress.
Now, one of the things that also separates us is that we will actually travel. If the patient is from the New England area, where we get quite a few patients, we will actually travel to their school, or home, or gym, or dance class and follow up with what they’re doing right or what they may need some help with.
We once had a patient, years ago, that we weren’t getting the results we wanted. Just by accident the mother happened to be sharing with us a video of her daughter who was a gymnast. And in watching the video, we noticed that there was a lot of impact when the young lady would be jumping off the beam. That was actually contraindicated for this patient. She had severe scoliosis. So we were able to correct this at that time by watching the video.
After that we then decided that we would request videos. Or, if necessary, we would actually travel to the patient’s gym if they were gymnasts, or to their school, or even to their dance studio if we have to. So we’ll go well above and beyond whatever we need to do to get the results on the patient, if they cooperate.
