Are you seeking relief from the pain and discomfort caused by Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is progressive, lateral curvature of the spine. While a healthy spine should have curves when viewed from the side, a sufferer of scoliosis will have a spine that curves when viewed from the front which can result in poor posture, shoulder humping, muscle weakness, and pain. In rare cases untreated scoliosis can lead to heart and lung problems and in severe cases can require surgery. If scoliosis is detected and treated early, patients may avoid these symptoms in many cases.
Chiropractic care may be effective in treating the symptoms of this condition, especially when treated in the early stages of the deformity. Our experienced chiropractors will provide a tailored program for each patient. With the correct treatment it may be possible to avoid the more unpleasant, expensive and invasive treatment options. Treatment methods may include:
- Specific Chiropractic Adjustments – specific adjustments aimed at reducing torsion in the spine and aimed at correcting dysfunction of skeletal structures
- Foot Orthotics and Heel Lifts – aiming to lift the pelvis and balance the spine
- Exercises – specific exercises designed to stretch or strengthen muscles, correct postural changes, address balance and body awareness problems
- Nutritional Support
A complete scoliosis program from our experienced chiropractors may identify the underlying problems areas and tailor methods that have the potential to prevent the need for more drastic treatments later on.
