“I suffered from allergies and asthma all of my life. I couldn’t breathe through my nose until I got my first chiropractic adjustment. It was at that point I realized the power of chiropractic care and decided to become a chiropractor.”

“I was born with debilitating asthma and allergies and was on a lot of medications just to help me make it through the day. I was in and out of the hospital and lived in an oxygen tent for weeks at a time. I had mandatory breathing treatments 3 times per day just to breath. I missed 2 months of first grade because of the severity of my asthma and allergies. The answer was always more and different medications even through high school. When I was 18 a friend of the family suggested chiropractic care to my parents.
“Their first response was he does not have any pain. After they were educated on how the nervous system controlled the whole body from breathing to thinking they decided to give it a try. At that point we had nothing to lose. After a very short period of time, around 3 months I was able to get off of my breathing treatments and actually breathe through my nose for the first time. I was able to go outside and play after dark without having an asthma attack or having to take my inhaler. It was unbelievable! It was not until I was working in a hospital and thinking of going to medical school that one of the nurses I worked with, whose husband was a chiropractor, suggested chiropractic school. The light bulb went off in my head and 3 months later I was in school to become a Chiropractor. It is amazing how life works. I would not change it for the world!,” states Dr. Kean.
After getting out of school and practicing I realized that I had no real answer for treating scoliosis under the chiropractic model I learned in school and that the medical model in my opinion did not offer a good solution. In 1999 I was invited to attend a small meeting with Dr. Dennis Woggon (founder of CLEAR) regarding scoliosis treatment through spinal bio-mechanics and engineering. That was the very first time I felt that there was hope for people who suffered with scoliosis to have an effective alternative to bracing and surgery. Since that time we have continued to improve and make excellent progress in our mission to change how the world looks at scoliosis treatment.
