Hey everyone - I'm new on here and have just been diagnosed with scoliosis. Sometimes I'm ok with it and other times it really gets me down...

The worst thing about it all is they have told me Iím going to have to have surgery for it and Iím really worried as I want to be a professional dancer. Are there any other cures for scoliosis apart from surgery? I found somewhere called the CLEAR Institute in the US and they have got some amazing before and after X-rays. Has anyone had any experience of this clinic?

Please help me Iím so worried that my back is going to keep getting more bent Ė I have already got a noticeable lean to one side.

Thanks,
CD

Sorry, I forgot to welcome you to SSO earlier. Glad to have you here. I did try to go to the Clear Institute site and accorrding to my search the Clear site has been removed. Could be temporary so I'll keep trying to check it. What did come up is that it is a chiropractic group. I am very skeptical about chiro sites. In my experience they seem to promise the moon and deliver a lot less. I know that they have eased some people's pain temporarily but those results seem to be in cases of minor curves and as of yet I have never seen proof of any long term or lasting positive effects. I am a firm beleiver in seeing a scoliosis specialist that is a medical doctor. And by all means get a second opinion after you have seen one.
