Scoliosis Doctors Dr. Anthony J.Pivonka,D.C., became interested in becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic at the early age of 13. Andy’s mom, Sharlene, had a past history of surgically treated scoliosis, and it looked as though he was at the beginning stages of developing Scoliosis as well. Andy began regular Chiropractic care to try to prevent the curvature in his spine from progressing further. Andy never required surgery for his scoliosis. He attributes this to the Chiropractic care he received early on. This sparked his interest in becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic. What sealed it for Andy though was hearing the full story of the huge scars on his mother’s leg and back from the scoliosis surgery she had. His mom spent six months recovering from her surgery and in the end she suffered daily pain where her spine had been fused.
This convinced Andy that Chiropractic was for him. He went on to become a Doctor of Chiropractic graduating Cum Laude from LIFE Chiropractic College, Marietta Georgia in December of 1993. Dr. Andy has eighteen years of experience working with scoliosis patients. He has spent a great deal of time and effort researching the best options for scoliosis patients.
His philosophy is if you can get started early with the best care available there is a high likelihood that almost anyone can be spared from what his mother has had to endure.
