Dr. Morningstar's practice is located in Grand Blanc, where he provides highly specialized testing and treatment for scoliosis. When asked about the reality television experience, Dr. Morningstar said, "It was a very eye-opening experience. You don't realize what goes into making this type of television show until you're on one. I hope this episode will help to shed some light on the many recent advancements made in the field of conservative, non-surgical scoliosis treatment."
Scoliosis is a three-dimensional curvature of the spine, which can cause heart and lung problems if the curvature becomes severe. Scoliosis is historically treated by observation, bracing, and fusion surgery. However, recent advances in clinical laboratory testing and rehabilitation strategies have provided new insights into the underlying causes of scoliosis. These advancements allow for better non-surgical treatment options, as well as minimally invasive non-fusion surgical procedures. Scoliosis affects 3-5% of adolescents annually, and over 60% of adult females ages 60 and older.
