Scoliosis is a spinal disorder simply defined as a sideways curvature of the spine that measures more than ten degrees. Many patients with scoliosis often experience other spinal issues due to decades of discomfort and incorrect posture.
The spine consists of a number of bones (vertebrae) connected by flexible cartilage that allows us to bend, balance and stretch. When these vertebrae curve into a ‘C’ or ‘S’ shape or even rotate, scoliosis occurs and health problems can develop.
Scoliosis is further identified by form or type:
Not everyone who suffers from scoliosis experiences persistent back pain. Your chiropractor will perform a thorough physical examination and gather information specific to your personal and family history. Your doctor will look for:
Persistent low back pain (LBP) due to scoliosis can eventually lead to numbness and weakness in the lower extremities. This, in turn, contributes to loss of balance. In the older patient with scoliosis, loss of balance leads to loss of overall mobility as falling becomes a very real possibility.
Chiropractic adjustment helps to improve form, which in turn helps improve your function.
Chiropractic adjustments and therapies induce greater mobility in your joints, which in turn increases comfort, decreases pain and improve posture.
Acupuncture therapy combined with manual manipulation restores balance and relaxes the tight musculature.
