Understanding Scoliosis: A Spinal Health Challenge

What is Scoliosis?

Scoliosis is an abnormal sideways curvature of the spine, starting as a postural distortion and potentially leading to permanent deformity if untreated. It can arise from congenital factors, habitual behaviors, or idiopathic causes.

Identifying Scoliosis

Parents might notice signs in their child like uneven shoulders, a high hip, or irregular shoe wear. Though often dismissed, back and leg pains can also be symptoms of scoliosis.

The Risks of Waiting

The “Wait and See” Approach

Ignoring scoliosis can lead to worsening conditions. In severe cases, this might necessitate wearing braces or undergoing surgery to attach steel rods to the spine.

Our Natural Approach to Scoliosis

Chiropractic Care for Scoliosis

We offer chiropractic adjustments aimed at improving spinal structure and function. These adjustments also strengthen and retrain muscles, aiding in posture improvement.

Comprehensive Scoliosis Evaluation

If you suspect your child has scoliosis, bring them in for a thorough evaluation. We’ll assess the spine’s curvature and determine the best course of action.

FAQs About Scoliosis Treatment

Is any sideways curvature normal?

No, any sideways curvature is abnormal. A healthy spine appears straight from the back.

When is scoliosis treatment necessary?

Treatment is typically recommended for curvatures beyond 10-25 degrees, with surgery considered for curves at or beyond 40 degrees.

Can heavy backpacks cause scoliosis?

While not directly causing scoliosis, heavy backpacks can contribute to spinal stress. Ensuring that backpacks are not overly heavy and are worn correctly is crucial.
