Scoliosis is a condition that involves a curvature of the spine.
It usually begins formation during adolescence and is more common in females than males. As we age, the condition can lead to severe and ongoing back pain if it is left untreated.
If you have a scoliosis you may notice:
- Uneven hips
- One leg seems to be longer than the other
- Pain in the lower back
- Discomfort in standing for long periods of time
- Crooked shoulders
- A visible curve in the spine
Using the Chiropractic approach stabilizes the spine and prevents the scoliosis curves from progressing. Chiropractic care for scoliosis can be very effective, especially when the deformity is in the early stages. The treatment program requires a commitment by the patient, but if undertaken enthusiastically it has the potential to prevent the need for much more drastic treatments later on.
