What is Scoliosis?

It is a bend or curve in the spine where a healthy spine would be completely vertical. Simply put, it is the abnormal sideways curve of the spine. The exact origin of the curve is often hard to trace. The causes range from leg length inequality and muscle imbalances to more complicated conditions like cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy. The largest category of scoliosis is termed idiopathic, which means the cause is unknown.

Treatment for Scoliosis

The primary goal of treatment is to maximize the mobility and function of the patient’s body. The abnormal spinal curves associated with scoliosis can cause stresses on weight-bearing joints, which can cause pain throughout the body, not just the spine. In severe cases, where the curve is large enough to put pressure on the lungs, breathing problems can occur. Chiropractic care combined with specific exercise prescription can significantly reduce the discomfort and progression of mild cases of scoliosis. In more advanced cases, treatment may include bracing or surgery.

Because chiropractors are experts at assessing, diagnosing, treating, and preventing problems of the spine and musculoskeletal system (joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves), they are specially qualified to manage or co-manage conditions like scoliosis.

Let Chiropractical help treat your scoliosis and prevent its progression, so that you can live a full and active life!
