Using Chiropractic Care to Manage Complaints Associated with Scoliosis (Spinal Curvature).

Scoliosis is a disorder that affects 5 to 7 million Americans each year.  Scoliosis causes the spine or backbone to curve abnormally. In a normal situation, our spine’s curve is normally seen when looking at it from the sides and it looks perfectly straight when viewed from the front. If you have scoliosis, additional curves are added to either side and the bones of the spine looks to be twisted. Scoliosis can develop at any age although it is more common among adolescents. In general, girls are more prone to scoliosis than boys and it can be inherited. It is referred to as an idiopathic condition because the causes are unknown.

When it comes to scoliosis treatment, chiropractic care is recognized as a valid method of treatment. Chiropractic treatment does not only treat the current problems that are associated with scoliosis but it can also help in alleviating and controlling the symptoms that comes with it. Scoliosis patients who have been treated with chiropractic care have been reported to have noticeable improvement with regards to the size of the curves. But this doesn’t happen overnight, chiropractic for scoliosis requires multiple visits in order for the patient to experience its full benefits. Chiropractic treatment for scoliosis may involve several procedures depending on the severity of the condition. These treatments may include spinal manipulation, electric stimulation, active exercise methods, shoe lifts, postural counseling and so on.
