National headlines are being made through the work of local chiropractor Dr. Clayton Stitzel. But to describe as his work as simply chiropractic work would significantly understate his groundbreaking treatment for scoliosis.

Stitzel has been selected to lecture on this new treatment for scoliosis at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth, England. The lecture to students will take place on October 21, 2009. In addition to England, he has lectured as far away as Singapore. The emphasis of Dr. Stitzel's lecture in England will be on Early Stage Scoliosis Intervention. "Early Stage Scoliosis Intervention is the single best opportunity a patient has in the fight against scoliosis. Non-invasive, rehabilitation based treatment in the early stages of the disease can often not only halt its progression, but even reverse the condition back to normal. All larger spinal curvatures started out as smaller ones," he said.
The new scoliosis treatment is an alternative to a patient wearing a rigid back brace for 23 hours a day, having spinal surgery, or watching and waiting. The treatment combines soft tissue work to loosen the muscles and realignment of the spine through stretching, vibrational therapy, and adjustments. Over 100 case studies have been completed on the CLEAR Institute scoliosis therapy and CLEAR research shows patients can start to respond to treatment in 2 or 3 weeks. "Watch and wait is simply ignoring the problem, rigid back braces don't work, and the long term affects of surgery are often worse than the spinal deformity itself," remarks Dr. Stitzel.
Dr. Stitzel's Lititz practice specializes in the early detection and treatment of the disease. But unlike more traditional approaches which have shown less than stellar success, Stitzel's approach has show results. Remarkably, he has been able to reverse or even completely cure the disease through non-invasive, non-surgical means.
...
"It often progresses," said Stitzel. "My treatment can usually completely reverse a curvature that is 10 degrees or less. But taking the 'wait and see' approach means a bigger curve which makes a successful outcome all the more challenging both for the patient and I."
He went on to explain that the next step in the traditional scoliosis schedule is bracing which is prescribed for curves that have progressed to 25 degrees or more. Stitzel however has research which shows bracing for scoliosis treatment simply does not work. And because it does not work, most patients must suffer and endure the pain until the point at which their curvature has progressed to 40 degrees. At 40 degrees a surgical approach is prescribed, but again, Stitzel has done research which indicates such operations do not provide the permanent fix patients are lead to expect.
...
"After the operation is performed, the average patient suffers a 25% reduction in their spinal ranges of motion," stated Stitzel.
...
Stitzel calls this test, commonly done by the school nurse during gym class the "too late test because detection in these tests is primarily due to a curvature that has progressed to the point where it is the presence of the rib hump and not the actual curvature which is seen. The only true objective means, however, for determining if your child has scoliosis is by taking spinal x-rays. The scoliosis is measured at the top and bottom of the curvature by a geometrical measurement called Cobb's angle.

LANCASTER COUNTY, PA - Sure it ...

LANCASTER COUNTY, PA - Sure it was built in his dad's garage with parts found in the trash, but Dr. Clayton J. Stitzel might have helped create the first meaningful treatment for curvature of the spine to come along in decades.

Scoliosis, which causes the spine to grow crooked, is painful and can cause serious complications as well as early death. Treatments have been few and far between over the years, and many children with developing spinal curves spend their formative years in torso braces designed to stop the bend from worsening - they're the same frightening contraptions spoofed in the movies "Sixteen Candles" and "Romy and Michele's High School Reunion. Others endured potentially dangerous surgeries to install rods in their spines.
Stitzel said scoliosis treatments to date have offered marginal health improvements at best. But his scoliosis patients at Lancaster Spinal Health Center in Lititz have been using a crazy-looking chair Stitzel refined from a colleague's design.
Used in conjunction with an exercise-and-manipulation regimen developed by cutting-edge researchers, Stitzel is seeing results.
"This is the first wave of the future for chiropractics," Stitzel said.
...
"We've consistently stopped the progression of scoliosis every time," Stitzel said. "We're turning a corner from how you can stop it to reducing it. And, if we can do that in a 73-year-old, we can do that in anybody."
Stitzel said he's seen results in younger patients, too. As the spine grows sideways, scoliosis patients often lose height. One of Stitzel's 20-year-old patients shrank 2 inches in a year because of her spine's curvature; after using Stitzel's combination regimen, the patient grew 2 inches.
The series of exercises and manipulations Stitzel uses was developed by the nonprofit Pettibon Institute in Washington and adapted for scoliosis treatment. It's a concept that rebukes the notion of bracing, or forcing the spine to grow straight.
"You can't force the spine to do something - you have to convince it," said Stitzel, a graduate of Manheim Central School District, Penn State University, Palmer College of Chiropractic and the Pettibon Institute.
Because a curved spine weakens muscles and tissue on one side, Stitzel uses "righting reflexes" to strengthen that side. In a way, it's contrary to logic because Stitzel exaggerates a patient's curvature by weighing down that side of their body with weights. But Stitzel said the brain's instinct to compensate for the extra weight strengthens the patient's weaker side.
...
And Stitzel has seen progress in his own scoliosis patients. For Stitzel, it was the first therapy he had encountered that stopped and reduced curvature.
...
Stitzel loved Woggon's invention, but he couldn't wait for improved versions of The Vibe that could be useful for his patients.
So he did what anyone would do: He went to his dad, John Stitzel, a retired Manheim Central junior high school principal who also happens to be handy in a workshop. "Clayton and I started talking, and I said, 'Tell me what you need and I can probably build it,' " John Stitzel said.
...
Clayton Stitzel's proof is in his patients' before and after X-rays and reports that their pain is diminished.
...
"I know (Dr. Stitzel) has had remarkable results with younger people. If I had had access to this chair when I was a teenager, I think this could have been avoided or treated successfully."
Treatment doesn't stop in Stitzel's office.
