Special Thanks to Our Kids and Their Families
We at Scoliosis Care CentersTM are extremely grateful to all of our patients and their parents who offered to share their journeys of their endeavors with scoliosis. Your stories are an inspiration to us all. We have compiled many of our patient’s scoliosis stories and videos here for you to view; as well as various educational videos to help you better understand idiopathic scoliosis; nerve tension; and other key topics.
When scoliosis can progress dramatically in less than 3 months time, then why is it so common to wait a whole year and see if it gets worse? Because X-ray radiation is harmful to the body! At Scoliosis Care CentersTM by Janzen and Janzen Chiropractic, we use standing MRI which allows us to check as often as necessary to make sure that we can reiterate our treatment as needed and correct the changing curve. This helps ensure that we provide the best treatment we possibly can.
Josie, a 15 year-old girl overcame scoliosis through non surgical treatment starting when she was 10 years old here at Scoliosis Care CentersTM by Janzen and Janzen Chiropractic. Scoliosis is a three-dimensional bend and twist of the spine that can progress to the point where heart and lung function is compromised and pain becomes a factor later in life. Josie’s scoliosis treatment took 5 years but was well worth the hard work, seeing nearly 80% reduction in her curve, bringing her Cobb angle from 37° to under 9°, and living the rest of her life free from the post side effects of surgery. Thanks to her treatment, Josie has been able to pursue her dreams of modeling while continuing to play Volleyball and finishing school.
Scoliosis Care CentersTM by Janzen and Janzen Chiropractic offers an individualized treatment plan for patients battling scoliosis. While the treatment involves a variety of customized therapies and exercises, one of the biggest obstacles of overcoming scoliosis is wearing the scoliosis brace. In order to be successful, patients must wear the brace for 20+ hours a day, often dealing with discomfort. These dedicated young ladies have avoided scoliosis surgery through this treatment and are here to share their motivating stories and advice with you with managing the day-to-day life wearing a Silicon Valley BraceTM
We understand that scoliosis surgery is a lifelong and life-changing decision that is very difficult to make, especially for someone at a young age. While surgery might be necessary for some extreme cases, we at Scoliosis Care CentersTM by Janzen and Janzen Chiropractic make it our mission to treat scoliosis with a non-surgical and non-invasive methodology. Listen to what some of our current and past patients have to say.
This is the story of Kaylee, a 13 year old girl with scoliosis who received non surgical scoliosis treatment at Scoliosis Care CentersTM by Janzen and Janzen Chiropractic in 2009 with amazing results. Today at 20 years old, she is pursuing her dreams with a strong & stable spine. Every scoliosis case is different, and results vary widely from case to case. This story highlights just what is possible with our non-surgical treatment, and the importance of pursuing conservative, early intervention for scoliosis.
The stories of multiple parents who have daughters with scoliosis who were told to “wait and see” by their pediatricians and orthopedists. Surgery is not the only viable option for scoliosis treatment and watching and waiting is not a solution. It is never too early to treat scoliosis. In fact, when it comes to treating scoliosis, the earlier the better. At Scoliosis Care CentersTM by Janzen and Janzen Chiropractic, we provide a custom non-surgical treatment plan to all of our patients to not only stop the spinal curve from progressing, but straighten the curve as well.
In this video of Kaylee we are analyzing the results of exercises that affect the cerebellum. There is a significant neurological component to her condition which can be protrayed through these tests.

Kate made this video during her second year being enrolled in care through Janzen and Janzen Chiropractic Corp.’s Scoliosis Care CentersTM (formerly Scoliosis Academy) program to permanently reduce her curvature below surgical range through physiotherapy, exercises, traction and bracing!
Since our first video of Kaylee, we received a lot of comments about the veracity of the success she saw and our treatment methodology.

This video portrays some of the exercises and treatment we used to get her to where she is today.
