Dr. Clayton J. Stitzel

As a leader amongst scoliosis specialists in Pennsylvania, Dr. Stitzel is regarded as one of the foremost experts on scoliosis exercise-based treatments. A native to Pennsylvania, Dr. Clayton J. Stitzel knew from early on that he wanted to serve those with scoliosis in Pennsylvania. To achieve this goal, Dr. Stitzel attended Penn State University where he received his bachelor's degree with a concentration in Kinesiology before attending the Palmer College of Chiropractic where he received a Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine. Dr. Stitzel was inducted into Palmer College's research fraternity where he also received research honors. He is also a national and international lecturer on non-invasive scoliosis treatment and co-developed the scoliosis traction chair.

An Innovative Approach to Treating Scoliosis

At ScoliSMART Clinics, we offer the most comprehensive scoliosis treatment program ever created — available to both children (6-17) and adults (18+) with idiopathic scoliosis. We strive to treat the whole scoliosis condition, not just the curve.

Get Information About the ScoliSMART Approach

Over the last 15 years of clinical practice, we have been on a journey to find "a better way" to treat scoliosis.

A better way that focuses on treating the condition itself, and not just the spinal curve.

A better way that produces no side effects or pain for the patient and non-invasively re-trains the brain on how to automatically hold the spine in a straighter position.

A better way to allow a kid to still be a kid — not a condition.

It can be done.
