Meet The Scoliosis Care Centers Family
Scoliosis Care CentersTM has been continually evolving since our very first scoliosis patient in 2008. 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.
Dr. Matthew I. Janzen
Doctor of Chiropractic
C.C.E.P, A.R.T. Provider
With more than 23 years of experience in chiropractic, specializing in scoliosis, Dr. Matthew Janzen is a skilled practitioner who received his doctorate degrees through Palmer University as a Salutatorian in 1995.
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.
“Developing better treatment through a better understanding of the problem of scoliosis.”
Dr. Michael E. Janzen
Doctor of Chiropractic
C.C.E.P, A.R.T. Provider
With more than 17 years of experience in chiropractic, Dr. Michael Janzen received his BS in Biology (Systems Physiology), Summa Cum Laude, in 1996 at San Jose State University. He finished his doctorate program at Palmer College of Chiropractic West, as Valedictorian, in 1999.
Dr. Michael Janzen has specialized in and studied different techniques in treating scoliosis. Early in his career, Dr. Michael specialized in musculoskeletal injuries of the spine and extremities from sports-related activities. Other post-doctorate certifications include Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner (C.C.E.P) and Active Release Techniques (A.R.T.). These certifications are designed to help the doctor more effectively treat the rigors of sports injuries and repetitive strain conditions. Being well rounded in all types of injuries and treatment protocols has helped him better understand the injuries of the human body.
“The solution to good health starts with a correct understanding of the problem. We strive to be thorough and complete in all aspects of our patients’ health care.”
