Case Studies

Case Study 3

Juvenile Idiopathic Scoliosis.

46° curve reduced to 20° degrees in a 7 year old male,

Juvenile scoliosis can be a dangerous and progressive form of scoliosis due to amount of growth the child will experience!

Case Study 2

A 25° scoliosis reduced to 5°with the straussmethod.

Custom designed scoliosis specific home exercises along with a selection of specific chiropractic, yoga for scoliosis, instruction in activities of daily living, targeted stretching, active self-correction, and nutritional advice, plus the addition of the most advanced bracing options if necessary.

Case Study 12

All LARGE curves started as small curves. Scoliosis is much easier to treat when the curves are small!

Case Study 1A

Patient began care at 12 years old.
Severe surgical level curve of 46° reduced to 17° over 2 years of care.
Family rejected the surgical option.
2 years after care and her corrections are stable.
Our goal: Avoid surgery!

Case Study 19

BEFORE & AFTER 42.5°/35.5° down to 12.9°/10.8°.

Case Study 6

14-year-old female patient came to us with severe kyphosis causing noticeable cosmetic abnormality. As seen in the right photo, patient shows significant postural change after just one week of treatment #straussmethod (exercise and therapy only, no bracing).

Case Study 11

This is a case of Kyphosis – excessive outward curvature of the spine, causing hunching of the back. 61° (hyper kyphosis) reduced to 48° (normal amount of kyphosis).

Case Study 16

The typical approach to treating mild scoliosis in children is simply to “watch and wait”- and see how the curve progresses. But most juvenile scoliosis curves are at high risk of worsening without treatment. The good news? Scientific studies have shown that individually designed, nonsurgical treatment programs can halt progression and even reduce scoliosis curves.

Case Study 17

Incredible in-brace correction with ScoliBrace. We select from 7 different braces to get the best fit for the patient.

image10a
Case Study 10

NOT ALL BRACES ARE THE SAME!! We see so many patients in our office that come in with braces that have minimal correction. We offer LASER scan precision in design plus in-house brace modifications for the best initial fit AND brace modifications during the course of treatment to provide the best continuing correction as the spine is straightening.

Case Study 20

BEFORE & AFTER
42.5°/35.5° reduced to 12.9°/10.8°

Case Study 7

In-brace X-ray shows a slight overcorrection which is an ideal bracing response! In brace X-ray is used to predict response to care. Scoliosis corrected in brace from 42° down to -2°.

image15a
Case Study 15

Incredible results after 26 months. Custom designed scoliosis specific home exercises, ScoliBrace, along with specific chiropractic alignments and therapy.

image8a
Case Study 8

15° to 0° in a 9 year old!!

Since the father of this patient has very large curve, the parents were very concerned and noticed a mild curve early. As we always say, every LARGE cure was once a small curve, and small curves are much easier to treat.

image18a
Case Study 18

38°/43° down to 29°/23°.

image4a
Case Study 4

Restoration of the normal spinal curves is essential!

This patient had a reversal of the normal neck curve.

The reversal is corrected with application of appropriate home exercise, spinal molding, and postural education.

Case Study 9

The Spinamic Brace is a hybrid soft jacket based system clinically proven to significantly correct mild to moderate, flexible curves.

In pain? Treat the cause, not just the symptoms

Scoliosis pain is rare in children, but it’s common in adults. In fact, up to 92% of adults with scoliosis experience pain as a result of their condition. Fortunately, you don’t have to suffer. But you do need to treat the cause and not just the symptoms of scoliosis pain.

The Truth About Adult Scoliosis: What You Need to Know About History, Treatment Options, and How to Prevent Progression

By Dr. Andrew Strauss

What our patients are saying

At Strauss Scoliosis Correction, we’ve helped over 10,000 scoliosis patients eliminate pain and stabilize their curves. Here’s what they have to say about their treatment.

quotes

I searched Google and found out about Dr. Strauss’s method of treatment. We decided to see Dr. Strauss because, in France, we don’t have intensive treatment and this equipment.

We tried Kinesitherapy in France, osteopaths, swimming. They wanted to go faster and they hurt Nicolas. Dr. Strauss takes care so the patient has no pain and the equipment is very appropriate with exercises and special equipment to correct scoliosis.

Nicolas has a serious scoliosis and it is a long road ahead. We know Nicolas has a strong scoliosis and it’s hard work but we don’t give up and we see improvements.

Thank you Doctor Strauss!

We had a good impression from the reviews we read. We chose Hudson Valley Scoliosis because it offers new alternatives to treat scoliosis. We liked everything about your center.

We were very satisfied. Usually Sami does not like hospitals or doctors, but this time it was different. He wants to spend more time at your center. The staff is very friendly. Dr Strauss is a wonderful and professional doctor.

Consider Hudson valley Scoliosis before making any decision about surgery or bracing. This center will teach you a lot about scoliosis. Other doctors just tell you to wait and watch which is a big lie.

We hoped to improve our daughter, and we felt this was our only hope. The center was very nice and friendly and Dr. Strauss is a real nice guy. Yasmine really likes him. This is Yasmine’s 2nd round and she likes how everyone here treats her like family.

After returning for our follow up (4 months later) and seeing good results, we know its worth the trip. The only thing I would like to see is a place like this in Ontario. We need a place like this.

We would tell people to come here and try this out before surgery. We DID tell people how we are happy with Dr. Strauss.

quotes

I am a MD, I myself noticed first that my daughter had a scoliosis. I took her to many ortho-spine specialist doctors, and all did nothing. Just wait and observe. I found this center on the internet and researched about it and finally made an appointment.

I am 100% satisfied with Dr. Strauss and his team, and the customized approach of treatment for each different type of scoliosis. I really thank Dr. Strauss and all his team. They are too good, caring, professional…whatever I write for Dr. Strauss & team is less! Amazing people doing a good job. Almighty bless you all!

Please do not go for surgery, what ever type of curve you have, it can be brought down by Dr. Strauss. Just try to visit Dr. Strauss and get it corrected. Surgery is not at all needed unless the curvature is making problems for the internal organs.

Dr A, father of R, age 14, Saudi Arabia
quotes

The improvement I experienced the first time I was here prompted me to come back again. Very Satisfied. All staff and Dr Strauss are professional and caring and go out of their way to make the experience as comfortable as possible.

After treatment, when back home, I am so pleased that I am able to send photos to Dr Strauss and receive feedback. I consider this a huge benefit.

I had always been led to believe that my scoliosis would continue to progress as I aged and eventually I would have no other choice than surgery. Dr Strauss has changed all this for me. My scoliosis has improved more than I thought was possible. I am able to manage my scoliosis much better with the home programme. I am not in pain and psychologically, I no longer find the scoliosis as terrifying as I did before. Finding Hudson Valley Scoliosis has been an enormous blessing!

quotes

I didn’t want to go through scoliosis surgery and so investigated alternative treatment options. Hudson Valley Scoliosis happened to be close to my home.

I am very satisfied. Everybody was pleasant and cordial. Dr. Strauss was able to answer all my questions. What is important to me, is that I learn as much as I can about my own body and receive individually-based treatment.

Do your research. Surgery is only justified in a few extreme cases, has high rates of complication, and does not guarantee improvement. If you are a teenager with scoliosis, be sure to wear your brace, if you have one, and do your CLEAR exercises. As someone who didn’t learn about these until his 20s, let me tell you that chronic physical pain is not something I would recommend–preventive healthcare is always, always your best option.
