Meet The Scoliosis Care Centers Family

Scoliosis Care CentersTM by Janzen and Janzen Chiropractic Corp has been continually evolving since our very first scoliosis patient in 2008. A little about us and the clinic: We recognized scoliosis needed a comprehensive individualized treatment. Families are generally left with the choice of doing nothing (“wait and see”) or surgery. Under the guidance of Dr. Matt Janzen, the mission of Scoliosis Care CentersTM is creating an incomparable methodology and innovative devices to provide effective care without invasive surgery.

Our Doctors

Dr. Matt specializes in musculoskeletal conditions of the spine and extremities, gearing towards sports-related injuries and scoliosis. This later allowed him to become a Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner (C.C.E.P) with the study and practice of Active Release Techniques (A.R.T.), which are highly effective for sports injuries. Innovation led by necessity has inspired Dr. Matt to develop a novel methodology that addresses scoliosis without invasive procedures in a way no other clinician has been able to. His mentality of “don’t quit until it’s fixed” has contributed to the quick growth and success of Scoliosis Care CentersTM.
