Scoliosis Treatment With Chiropractic Care
Scoliosis is a medical condition in which there is a sideways curvature in the spine. While not especially common, scoliosis is certainly not rare with an estimated 3% of the American population being affected by scoliosis by some degree -- which accounts for over 7 million people. So, if you or someone you love has been diagnosed with scoliosis or suspect that scoliosis may be diagnosed, know you are not alone. The good news is that there are several treatment options out there and as your local chiropractor team, we are here to help you and your family seek relief.
Understanding Scoliosis and How Chiropractic Care Can Help
Many scoliosis cases occur due to a growth spurt happening just before puberty. Research is still ongoing on what causes this growth spurt to happen, with some evidence that factors may revolve around hereditary factors. Other causes of scoliosis not related to this pre-pubescent growth spurt include muscular dystrophy and cerebral palsy. Whatever the cause, for those with scoliosis, they may suffer symptoms including pain, reduced respiratory function, and/or reduced self-esteem due to the physical appearance of scoliosis.
How Seeing a Chiropractor Can Help
There is no definitive cure for scoliosis, at least not once a person has completed growing. There are, however, several trusted chiropractic techniques that can assist in managing and relieving the pain and discomfort that is caused by scoliosis. This is done via the use of gentle, non-invasive, and non-addictive therapies of chiropractic adjustments and massage therapies. Therapies that can help improve your activity and lifestyle by reducing the pain and discomfort associated with scoliosis.
Chiropractic adjustments are a unique therapeutic technique that a trained and licensed chiropractor will use to reduce joint restrictions, make realignments in the spine, and realign other joints with the aim to reduce the inflammation that commonly causes pain and improve the entirety of the spine's range of motion. After a spinal readjustment, you should feel in less pain and feel greater flexibility throughout your body so that you can better continue on with daily activities or even work towards activities you may have before thought impossible, such as sports or other activities.
