March 27, St. Cloud, MN – The CLEAR
Scoliosis Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people with
scoliosis through advanced chiropractic care, will be presenting its latest
research article in a poster format at the 7th Annual Meeting of the
International Society of Scoliosis Orthopedic Rehabilitation Techniques
(SOSORT) in Milan, Italy, on May 10-12.


SOSORT is
a Non-Profit Organization founded to foster the best conservative management
strategies for scoliosis, and to promote multidisciplinary teamwork within the
field. It is the sponsoring organization of the scientific journal Scoliosis
, which is an open-access,
peer-reviewed publication.

The
research article reports the outcomes experienced by seven adolescent patients
with idiopathic scoliosis who were treated with a comprehensive two-week
intensive treatment protocol involving chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue
therapy, and neuromuscular rehabilitation, and their long-term results.

“Obviously we are very excited to participate in the
SOSORT conference,” states Dr. Josh Woggon, Director of Research for the CLEAR
Non-Profit Institute and the primary author of the article. “This is a
gathering of all of the scoliosis experts from around the world, combining
their talents and advancing research into non-surgical treatment options. The
multidisciplinary approach that SOSORT takes is in line with CLEAR’s goal of
promoting cooperation amongst chiropractors and orthopedists for the benefit of
the scoliosis patient. I believe chiropractic has a great deal to offer both
people living with scoliosis and the researchers in the field. This article is
only the first step in establishing this value in the peer-reviewed literature
and to our colleagues involved in the management of scoliosis.”
