What is scoliosis?
Scoliosis is an abnormal sideway curvature of the spine. Some people are born with it, and some get scoliosis as they age. Although a small percentage of the U.S. population has some form of scoliosis, 90% of scoliosis patients have a curvature that is not severe enough to require surgery, yet it is extremely painful because of how it affects the body’s anatomy.
Being that Doctors of Chiropractic have a detailed knowledge of musculoskeletal conditions and disorders, they are able to identify patients with scoliosis through a comprehensive physical examination.
How can chiropractic help those with scoliosis?
Chiropractic care can help reduce pain and discomfort, decrease inflammation, improve flexibility and range of motion in scoliosis patients. This relief can be achieved by the chiropractic adjustment, which is non-invasive and drug free, providing a health alternative for scoliosis patients to treat their condition.
