Chiropractic Care for Scoliosis
Scoliosis is a common condition that can be debilitating in severe cases. This condition involves a curvature of the spine that is abnormal. It often develops before puberty, and many causes of the condition are unknown. At the Spinal Decompression and Chiropractic Center in Denton, TX, our team of experts diagnose scoliosis and provide ways to manage scoliosis pain, as well as to slow down the degenerative process associated with it.
Severity of Scoliosis
Many people have scoliosis, and a large percentage have no idea it exists unless they get a physical exam that focuses on the spine. In some cases, scoliosis can be mild and has no real impact on a person’s capabilities and mobility. However, in more severe cases, the curve of the spine is severe and often continues to worsen. And even moderate cases will eventually end up with significant degeneration at the apexes of each curve. This can lead to pain, decreased range of motion, and an inability to do daily activities.
Symptoms and Conditions of Scoliosis
Scoliosis can impact patients in different ways, depending on its severity. As the condition gets worse, it affects posture, gait, how people move, and their structural strength. Others realize limitations in flexibility and capability, such as children with severe scoliosis and back deformation. The body can also physically display the condition when it is severe. A common initial sign is uneven shoulders, hips, and legs. It can also cause the ribs to stick out farther on one side of the body.
Scoliosis is more common in females. It is also hereditary, so it is important to get frequent checkups if you are at risk.
Diagnosis and Management of Scoliosis
When you first visit our chiropractors, we will perform a thorough physical exam. If we determine that you have scoliosis, we will create a personalized treatment plan for you.
Chiropractic care can provide pain relief and offer a safe, non-invasive treatment option for scoliosis. Our doctors may use chiropractic adjustment techniques. These adjustments work to gently and safely realign the spine and neck. Doing so will alleviate tension and pressure in the back. We also may use spinal decompression, which stretches the spine to decrease inflammation, reduce pain and discomfort, and improve flexibility.
