Chiropractic Adjustments for Scoliosis
Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine where the spine develops a degree of curvature which often results in an “S” or “C” shape from the front or rear view of the body. Many patients with scoliosis have noticeably uneven shoulder blades, waist, or hips. In some cases, you will see a rib hump or prominence of the lower back on the side with the curvature.
Although scoliosis can be caused by conditions like cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, the cause of most scoliosis cases is unknown. Most cases of scoliosis occur just prior to beginning puberty when children go through a growth spurt.
Chiropractic care along with postural exercise can help in treating scoliosis and prevent further progression long term. Chiropractic scoliosis care can help to reduce or eliminate pain and discomfort, increase mobility and function, and help with good posture and quality of life.
