Lifelong Spine Care at Hey Clinic. The age range of success stories seen today in clinic

At Hey Clinic, we do life-long scoliosis care, from small children, through adolescent, young adult, middle-aged adults, and older adults.
In the picture above, we can see an example of the age range of guests we have served, and seen in clinic just today and yesterday.
Each guest and their family has their own goals, and receives different benefits from getting their scoliosis fixed. Some of the guests below have been featured in previous blogs, including Mary, from Princeton NJ who got a phenomenal correction from a thoracolumbar sacral instrumentation and fusion, now with excellent posture and ability to return to active walking program, and ability to go back to work at at a Princeton "Think Tank". We also saw Candice, who is a grad student with thoracic scoliosis with hypokyphosis / lordosis which we were able to fix to pull her chest wall out to a normal shape. Our 12 year-old was also only 3 months out, and played 3 different sports this summer after her surgery, and is also playing sports this fall as well.

On Monday this week I saw a very nice 14 yo girl from Indiana with severe Scheuermann's kyphosis, measuring almost 85 degrees, who found us through Molly, our Michigan teenager who came down this summer to get her kyphosis fixed.

It has been a very busy week at Hey Clinic, and now it's time to recharge the batteries.
