CLEAR® scoliosis treatment plans
There are two CLEAR treatment plans available to patients, Standard Care and Intensive Care.
For patients located within driving distance, the Standard Care Treatment Plan involves regular visits, usually around three times a week for four weeks then twice a week for six weeks and eventually once a week for 12 weeks. Ongoing monitoring and follow-up care is provided according to individual need.
The Intensive Care Treatment Plan is typically provided to patients who must travel a great distance. Treatment is provided twice daily over a span of one or two weeks. Both plans have a home rehabilitation program that must be done daily as well.
The rate of progression for scoliosis patients differs greatly by age. However, regardless of age, our goals are similar. Goals of treatment are as follows:
- Reduce the scoliosis
- Prevent any further progression
- Improve function and reduce pain
- Provide long term stabilization
- If a patient is going to have surgery, prepare the patient for the best possible surgical outcome.
Unfortunately, there is no method to determine when a scoliosis is first diagnosed to determine the size of the curve in the future. However, the tendency is that once curves break 25 degrees, the curve will continue to progress throughout one’s life without any treatment. Therefore, acting when a curve is smaller is almost always the best decision.
