Our Founder

Dr. Dennis Woggon

Dr. Dennis Woggon graduated cum laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1974, with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Doctorate in Chiropractic. Since 1974, he has run a successful chiropractic practice and continues to provide care to people with scoliosis from around the world to this day. Dr. Woggon taught seminars on Spinal Biomechanics at Palmer College in Davenport for 25 years. He has traveled to present his groundbreaking work in the field of scoliosis to doctors across America, as well as Mexico, Europe, and Russia, for nearly 20 years. Dr. Dennis has written numerous publications and books on chiropractic, spinal biomechanics and scoliosis. In 2007, together with his son Josh, he founded the first scoliosis clinic on the campus of a chiropractic college in Dallas at Parker College of Chiropractic. He was certified in video fluoroscopy by Palmer College in 1992 and utilizes digital motion x-ray in his practice (learn more at www.drwoggon.com). Dr. Dennis was the first to recognize the potential of Whole-Body Vibration to help people with scoliosis, inventing The Vibe Whole-Body Vibration platform, the Vibrating Traction, and the Scoliosis Traction Chair (learn more at www.VibeForHealth.com). Although he invented this equipment, he has never taken any royalties from sales, but rather re-invests everything back into CLEAR to help more people living with scoliosis. He founded CLEAR Scoliosis Institute in 2000, serving as the Chairman of its Board of Trustees. You can e-mail him at drwoggon@clear-institute.org.
