What is Scoliosis?
The first thing you should know is that scoliosis is NOT a disease. It is a term used in the medical field to describe any abnormal, sideways curvature that occurs in the spine. A normal spine is straight when viewed from the back. If scoliosis is present, the spine can curve a few different ways:
- Shaped like the letter C where there is a single curve to the left, called levoscoliosis
- Shaped like a backwards letter C, where there is a single curve to the right, called dextroscoliosis
- Shaped like the letter S where the spine has two curves
There are two other categories that can help classify different cases of scoliosis:
- Structural - when the spine’s curve is fixed and was caused by a disease, injury, or birth defect
- Nonstructural - when the curve is temporary
The diagnosis of scoliosis often occurs after a child is 7 years old. The most common form of scoliosis, which occurs in approximately 2% the population, is called idiopathic (id-ee-o-PATH-ik) scoliosis. The term “idiopathic” simply means there is no known cause for a condition or disease.
It has been reported by the Scoliosis Research Society that more than 80% of cases have no clear cause. However, when a cause can be determined, it is often associated with birth defects (congenital), neurological abnormalities and genetic conditions. Idiopathic scoliosis is by far the most common cause of scoliosis in children, while degenerative scoliosis is the most common form of scoliosis in adults.

How a specific type of Chiropractic therapy can help
Being diagnosed with Scoliosis can be a scary experience, leaving patients feeling like they only have surgical options when it comes to treatment. We don’t think surgery is always the answer and believe that it’s better if you can heal yourself naturally.
We’ve seen hundreds of patients at our Singapore Chiropractic clinic make remarkable corrections to the curvatures in their spine using CLEAR™ Institute methods. These methods use the latest technology and are directed by our certified staff and doctor, who frequently visits the U.S. to continue his CLEAR education.
What is the CLEAR™ Institute?
The CLEARTM Institute is a non-profit organization with the mission to treat the condition of scoliosis without using traditional treatments like bracing or surgery.
Since 2000, they have been sharing their effective chiropractic system for scoliosis care to help people worldwide. The CLEAR™ Institute’s seminars and lectures are dedicated to sharing their proven treatments with chiropractors and other medical professionals to effectively treat scoliosis.

Happy Patient of Precision Spine
What I’m most impressed with is the speed at which
my condition has improved. I suffered from a loss of neck curvature.
Before coming to Precision Spine, I was experiencing migraines and neck aches probably like 4 out of 7 days of the week and it was terrible because that limited my activity. I was constantly in a bad mood and I was tired, I couldn’t focus on my work properly. So when I started experiencing headaches, neck aches, migraines I went through an entire spectrum of treatments from massages to visiting the Chinese Physician to acupuncture and none of them worked for me. They provided temporary relief. It lessened the pain for a while, but they always came back after a couple of days.
I’ve been experiencing headaches and migraines since I was 18 but when I discovered about this loss of curvature was when I came to visit Dr Will in October last year.
Most importantly, I think Dr Will and Sabrina are extremely experienced
and what I liked was the certainty with which he diagnosed my problem
and how the approach solving this neck issue of mine.
After beginning treatment, all these pains and aches started to fade out
but it was only after the curvature of my neck got restored,
The pain kind of like instantly disappeared like that.
Don’t waste your money going to all these other kinds of treatment because they merely relieve the pain like I said earlier and they don’t correct the problem which is what Precision Spine targets to do.
Formerly Suffering From Scoliosis
I highly recommend Dr. Will Kalla. He’s remarkable. Really remarkable. My name is Jennifer. I’m 62 years old and I have a scoliosis of the spine. I’ve had it since I was about 14.
I was in so much pain. I had an incredible amount of pain down my ribcage. And I was getting really strong dizzy spells and pressure in my head. And not even painkillers could seem to relieve it.
It was just an awful pressure headache that just wouldn’t go away. I started doing Yoga and acupuncture. And I’ve been visiting chiropractors basically all my life.
Nothing’s changed. The condition of my spine is just the relief of the pain and the pressure.
I think the results speak for themselves I’m out of pain and I don’t have the pressure in my head. I no longer have the pain in my side. Each night when I first came, I had terrible pain in my side And today the pain has really subsided.
Thank you Dr Will!
