Scoliosis is a condition in which the spine, instead of being straight, has a curvature to the side. The curve can occur in any part of the spine, but is most commonly found in the mid-back region.
Symptoms may include:
Scoliosis can also lead to other health problems such as breathing difficulties, as well as decreased range of motion in the spine. The severity of the curve, as well as the location of the curve, will determine the potential for these complications.
Once diagnosed, treatment options for scoliosis may include:
We can use spinal adjustments and other manual techniques to improve the alignment of the spine and reduce pain. Regular maintenance care and exercise can also help to slow the progression of the curve.
It is important to note that there is no one-size-fits-all approach. The best treatment plan will be unique to each individual patient and will depend on factors such as severity of the curve, the location of the curve, and the patient’s age and overall health.
