Scoliosis is defined by an abnormal curve with the spine, and can affect a wide range of ages, from young children to older adults. This condition can lead to an unbalanced posture as well as back pain, and is known for pain to get worse unless the condition is treated.
From the side, the spine forms 3 curves at the neck, midback, and lowback. When you look at the spine from the back, it should form a straight line; if it curves, instead, it is called scoliosis.
According to the National Scoliosis Foundation: “Chiropractic care has been instrumental in the treatment of scoliosis for several years. Chiropractic care will continue to be recognized as a valid treatment .”
If you already have been diagnosed with Scoliosis as a child or an adult, your Physician may be able to help you lead a more active lifestyle through chiropractic care, progressive rehab, and wellness.
If you have a child that has never been screened for Scoliosis, it is one of the services that your physician offers to the community. The best time to catch scoliosis is before it begins to impact your child’s life!
So schedule a visit today to your Physician to schedule your Scoliosis screening for the entire family!
