Postural correction/Scoliosis/Leg Length Discrepancy

Chiropractic care along with postural exercise can prevent progression of scoliosis, reduce pain and discomfort, increase mobility and function, and improve posture and quality of life.

We specialize in diagnosis and treatment of Leg Length Discrepancy. We have on-site, digital x-ray to determine if your LLD is anatomical or functional and provide proper correction to prevent future complications.

Leg Length Discrepancy

Leg-length Discrepancy is most often divided into two groups: anatomic and functional. LLD has been implicated in affecting gait and running mechanics and economy, standing posture, postural sway, as well as increased incidence of scoliosis, low back pain, osteoarthritis of the hip and spine, aseptic loosening of hip prosthesis, and lower extremity stress fractures.

Scoliosis

Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine. The spine is innately designed with three curves, creating an “S” shape from the side. Many people with scoliosis have noticeably uneven shoulders, waist or hips, a rib hump or prominence of the lower back on the side with the curvature. Chiropractic care along with postural exercise can prevent progression of scoliosis, reduce pain and discomfort, increase mobility and function, and improve posture and quality of life.
