Chiropractic care for scoliosis allows you to re-stabilize the movement and correct position of the spine and relieve the back pain associated with it.
What is scoliosis?
Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature in the line formed by the vertebrae along the spine, which instead of being straight has an S or C shape. It is usually detected more frequently in girls and between 8 and 18 years old although it can occur at any age.
So far, classical orthopedic medicine holds that corsets and exercises are necessary to correct the curvature of the spine derived from scoliosis.
The results of this treatment have proven to be ineffective, as a last resort traditional orthopedics is committed to surgery, with an operation consisting of fixing the column with steel bars, to leave it straight, although immobile.
The chiropractic solution for scoliosis
Every chiropractic doctor has a complete training and knowledge of the spine and its nerves, is fully qualified to perform complete exams of the back and make the treatment of scoliosis with a program of specific adjustments.
By making very precise adjustments to the area of the spine that is affected by scoliosis, the chiropractor removes the pressure on the nerves and muscles. The goal is to re-stabilize the movement and correct position of the spine and relieve back pain associated with scoliosis.
