Affecting about 2-3 percent of the population, scoliosis is a condition in which the spine has an unnatural curvature. Instead of traveling straight up and down someone’s back with natural curves, it could lean and shift to one side, like a parenthesis. In mild cases, it can affect posture or overall alignment — something that our chiropractors are skilled at working with. In more severe cases, vital organs can be negatively affected and end up with resulting issues.
HOW A FAMILY CHIROPRACTOR CAN HELP:
A thorough examination helps detect scoliosis in its early stage, and a corrective care can begin at once. Our chiropractors have worked with many people who have scoliosis, and we can come up with a health plan to help make a difference.
Scoliosis is often diagnosed in childhood (or even in infancy). If you have concerns about your child’s posture, if it seems uneven, or if you notice their gait seems a bit off, our family chiropractor is the one to consult with. While pediatricians usually check for scoliosis at yearly appointments, it can still go undiagnosed — their way of checking is thorough, but pretty quick.
