Your spine consists of 24 blocked-shaped bones called vertebrae. The bones stack up on top of one another to form a straight line from front to back. Typically, spines are not perfectly straight and that is perfectly normal. However, if the spine has excessive curves or twists from side to side, this is not normal, this is called scoliosis.
Chiropractic care can be extremely effective at correcting scoliosis and alleviating the pain that can be associated with the condition. Any serious medical diagnosis is scary, but knowing your options that do not involve the surgery, can help you to make the right decision for your care.
In most cases of scoliosis, the cause is unknown. The bones, discs, ligament, tendons, and muscles all appearing normal.
However, in rare cases, the cause is linked to a disorder or a disease, such as a tumor, an infection, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, a birth deformity, or disc problems.
Chiropractors are specially trained to treat the spinal abnormalities of scoliosis. With the use of X-rays, chiropractors can accurately determine the extent of the condition as well as the severity of the curves and twists.
Traditional medical management of scoliosis often involves the “wait and see” approach. However, a chiropractor’s goal is to detect scoliosis as a child. If started on an exercise and chiropractic treatment early enough, it is possible to slow, stop, or even reverse the progress of the spinal curvature.
Subluxations not only affect the spine but affect the entire body. In conclusion, regular treatment of subluxations allows the body to be in a better position to resist abnormalities and diseases of all kinds, including scoliosis. Therefore, with careful monitoring, regular treatment, and exercise, the spinal abnormalities of scoliosis can be minimized.
