Scoliosis

Scoliosis is a sideways curve of the spine that causes stiffness and pain. Patients with scoliosis have a sideways curve in their spine that makes and “S” or “C” shape. Usually this curve makes the waist or shoulders uneven.

And unlike the normal curvature of the spine, adjusting your posture will not correct the problem. It is more common in females and begins in childhood, however merely 2 percent of the population is afflicted. If it is detected early, scoliosis treatment will prevent it from worsening over time.

In some instances, the degenerative diseases of the spine can cause scoliosis. Osteoporosis is when the bones soften and usually occurs in older people. This softening can cause the vertebrae to bend and shape the curve causing scoliosis or kyphosis (round back). If not treated properly, severe back pain, deformity, and difficulty breathing can be some symptoms that will arise. Chiropractic care can help improve this condition. Scoliosis can be treated in various ways to help alleviate pain and restore normal functionality. If needed, we will refer you to a specialist for further scoliosis treatment.
