Our Patients Speak Out


I was diagnosed with Idiopathic Scoliosis when I was 12 years old and for a course of 6 years I wore an itchy, sweaty, extremely uncomfortable back brace—not to mention socially disastrous for a teen—23 to 24 hours a day. I was allowed 1 free hour to shower and do my exercise. The doctors waited and watched my curves increase.  I don't believe the brace helped at all—possibly made things worse! I was 18 when I had a double spinal fusion (rod surgery) only because this was the only choice my family knew of at that time. Medical doctors convinced my mom it was a must. I wasn't in any pain at the time. I am now 37 years old (19 years after surgery) and I have lived with pain for the last 18 years now.  Any activity I do causes me pain; working, simple house chores, and worse just playing with my kids can be painful! I have tried massage, tens unit, muscle relaxers, physical therapy, faucet joint injections, acupuncture, and chiropractic.  The last 2 have given me the most relief, but I will never be "normal" again. Early intervention is important. This is the reason that I brought my 8-year-old daughter to be treated by Dr. Sorum.-Jennifer - Jennifer

“In May of 2008 our daughter, age 5, was diagnosed with scoliosis. She also has a genetic syndrome, called Prader Willi Syndrome(PWS), which causes her to have very low muscle tone and both cognitive and neurological delays. She had a 46 degree mid back curve on her right side and we were told she was beyond bracing and that we should prepare for her to have rod surgery. In doing so, they would have to put her under general anesthesia every 6 months so the doctors could perform surgery to lengthen the rods. This would need to occur for many years until she was done growing and then she would need to have her back fused. My husband and I said we would not do this until we had tried everything else available. It was during my research on the internet for non-surgical options that I found the C.L.E.A.R Institute and from there I found Dr. Scot Sorum in Bellevue. We began seeing Dr. Scot Sorum in November of 2008 and by then her curve had increased to 53 degrees. Since working with Dr. Scot, we have seen amazing results not just in the maintenance of her scoliosis without surgery, but in her increased energy, confidence and balance while walking and running.  We are so grateful we did not decide to do the surgery and not look into other alternatives. Dr. Sorum is so good with our young daughter and we can't thank him and his team enough for all they have done. We continue to look forward to having him work with our daughter in an effort to give her a chance at a better life dealing with her scoliosis.  Lauren
