As a student in graduate school, I helped pioneer a new rehab based approach that significantly improved a patient's traumatic scoliosis. With vastly improved pre/post x-rays in hand, I set off showing every doctor what we had accomplished. One radiologist examined the films, saw the pride in my eyes and asked me, "are you treating x-rays or treating people?". I was stunned, then a little ashamed. While pre/post x-rays are the standard of care in scoliosis treatment, our patients love coming to our office because we always focus on treating people, not just the crooked spine on the x-rays.
