I am excited to share with you the only real solution for scoliosis.
My name is Doctor Andrew Strauss, and I’ve been reducing pain and improving the condition of scoliosis sufferers for more than 30 years. I feel extremely lucky to play a part in the improvement of so many scoliosis patients’ quality of life.
As a young teen, I experienced severe chest pain. The pain was debilitating, preventing me from enjoying life. Doctors, specialists, and physical therapists told me there was nothing they could do other than manage the pain with painkillers that treated the symptom, but not the root cause of my pain. Just like many scoliosis sufferers, I felt as if there was nothing I could do to change my situation.
After trying everything we could, my family finally decided to try a chiropractor. After 5 years of chest pains, I finally had relief. I was free. I no longer felt as if I had no control, and I finally had a normal life again. It was then that I discovered the healing power of chiropractic to change people’s lives. As a result of my experience, it became my mission to help others who feel that same helplessness and hopelessness that I knew so well.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology with honors from the University of New Hampshire in 1978. I then went on to study chiropractic at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa – the world’s oldest and largest chiropractic college – where I graduated with honors in 1982.
For the last 34 years, I have specialized in the treatment and relief of scoliosis symptoms. Ten years ago, I discovered Dr. Woggon and the C.L.E.A.R. Institute, which provides chiropractic solutions that relieve pain and improve the quality of life for scoliosis sufferers all over the world. Since discovering this amazing treatment, I’ve earned the highest level of certification available through the C.L.E.A.R. Institute and I’ve become incredibly passionate about helping scoliosis sufferers experience relief, hope, and freedom. I am currently a lecturer for the C.L.E.A.R. Scoliosis Institute, a member of the technique advisory committee, and a board member of C.L.E.A.R.’s non-profit organization. I am actively involved in scoliosis research, currently working on a study of the effect of scoliosis on lung function in children and adult scoliosis patients.
