Early Detection of Scoliosis
While slight curvatures in the spine are often ignored in traditional medicine, over time, even a slight distortion of the spinal curve can worsen and cause even more issues down the road. Because the spine houses the central nervous system, if it is out of balance, it can cause more problems than just a misalignment, such as immunity issues and congestion.
Chiropractic care enables early detection of scoliosis by pinpointing minor degrees of curvature or distortion before it’s too late. Detecting scoliosis at the earliest stages can stop the progression or treat the problem before the symptoms take over the patient’s mobility or quality of life. A chiropractor can develop a personalized treatment plan that can help fix scoliosis at the source.
Chiropractic Adjustments Can Relieve Pain and Bring Back Mobility and Function in the Body
Pain and mobility issues often come along with scoliosis. Adjustments of the spine through chiropractic care can greatly reduce the pain that is associated with the condition, bringing back mobility and function to the affected area, including the spine, joints, and the rest of the body.
As a gentle, non-invasive solution, chiropractic care can reduce restrictions in the joints or misalignments in the spine without the need for surgery or drastic measures. Getting a chiropractic adjustment has a number of amazing benefits for patients who have scoliosis, including:
- Decreases inflammation in the body
- Reduces pain and discomfort
- Improves range of motion
- Improves flexibility
- Improves spinal health
- Supports nervous system function
- Increases activity and lifestyle
No matter if your scoliosis is just starting or in the most severe stages, chiropractic care is an effective solution that can help improve your quality of life and reduce your pain
What Are Some Common Symptoms of Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine. While the normal spinal shape should be relatively straight with a slight curve at the top of the shoulder and a slight curve at the lower back, scoliosis is marked by a spinal curve that goes from side to side, like an S-shape or a C-shape.
Because of this abnormality in the spine, scoliosis can cause symptoms such as:
- One shoulder blade that is higher or sticks out more than the other
- Pain throughout the spine, shoulders, or hips
- Uneven hips
- A rotating spine
- Back pain
- Problems with breathing because of a reduced area in the chest for the lungs to expand
Chiropractic care can aid in relieving the pain caused by scoliosis, as well as bring back mobility and flexibility, and improve your overall quality of life.
