What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a disorder that affects the normal curvature of the spine. Adult scoliosis begins in adolescence usually, causing the patient to exhibit the following symptoms:
- Difference in the length of legs
- A visibly curved spine
- One shoulder being higher or more prominent than the other
Scoliosis, if left untreated, can result in the worsening of the normal curvature, and cause the patient to experience extreme pain and shortness of breath.
Chiropractic Care for Scoliosis
Scoliosis is a unique spinal condition which cannot be treated using any medical or alternative therapy. However, the use of supportive braces and chiropractic adjustments can help improve the symptoms of scoliosis, as well as the posture and mobility of the patient. In addition to this, spinal adjustments done by an expert professional can prevent degradation of the spine.
At HealthFirst Spine & Wellness, we use a multitude of techniques to help a patient with scoliosis live a pain-free, independent life. Using advanced diagnostic procedures, such as functional movement analysis and digital posture analysis, we identify the postural imbalances that may worsen the symptoms of the disease and suggest rehabilitative exercises to improve the posture and strengthen the affected muscle groups.
Since each patient has unique health-related needs, our chiropractors develop a customized treatment plan for each patient that’s based on their degree of spinal curvature, symptoms, and bone age.
