Chiropractic care for Scoliosis
A natural solution to relieve and manage pain and discomfort caused by scoliosis.
Understanding scoliosis and how routine chiropractic care can help.
What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine. Most scoliosis cases occur during the growth spurt just prior to puberty, causing potential deformities. Other causes can include cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy.
Scoliosis affects almost 3 percent of the population, totaling over 7 million people. Those affected may suffer from pain, reduced respiratory function, or diminished self-esteem that can deter them from participating in many activities or sports.
Doctors are still not sure what causes scoliosis, but it does appear to involve hereditary factors. Although there is no determined cure, there may be ways to provide relief and improve the quality of life for scoliosis patients through chiropractic treatment.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help Those With Scoliosis?
Chiropractic care is a great non-invasive way to relieve pain caused by scoliosis. Chiropractic treatment offers a non-invasive, drug-free, and extremely effective option for reducing the limitations scoliosis causes. Chiropractic care can reduce the use of over the counter pain medications.
Chiropractors provide gentle, non-invasive adjustments that reduce restrictions in joints. The adjustment is helpful in reducing joint inflammation that causes pain, restores joint mobility, and improves the function of the nervous system. Spinal health allows the body to better manage symptoms associated with scoliosis.
Listed here are some of the benefits of chiropractic adjustments can provide to scoliosis patients:

Increased activity/better lifestyle
In addition to chiropractic care, there are other treatments for scoliosis such as physical therapy for scoliosis and scoliosis therapy. These treatments can help to strengthen the muscles that support the spine and improve posture. Chiropractic for scoliosis can also be effective in reducing pain and improving function.
