Millions of people in the U.S. are affected by scoliosis, a curvature of the spine that usually develops during the growth phase of adolescence. Despite its prevalence, the good news is many people with scoliosis lead happy, healthy lives without the need for invasive surgery or long-term bracing used in people with extreme curvatures. However, while many cases of scoliosis are mild, they can still cause pervasive symptoms of pain and achiness that can have an impact on many activities of daily living.
At Health 1st, we help patients with symptomatic mild scoliosis relieve the pain and aches that can develop as a result of spinal curvature. Every treatment is preceded by a thorough examination and evaluation to ensure treatment is applied in a way that’s most effective for each patient’s needs and symptoms.
Scoliosis and Your Body
Scoliosis can be caused by accidents and other trauma, nerve or muscle diseases, and other physical causes, but in most cases, the cause is unknown. The characteristic spinal curve that’s the hallmark of scoliosis developed as the forces exerted on the spine shift during development, creating an uneven distribution that causes the spine to become deformed. The individual bones of the spine (the vertebrae) often rotate as well. Some types of scoliosis are severe, but most are mild enough so that invasive treatments to straighten the spine aren’t necessary.
Still, the uneven shape of the spine can cause symptoms. Because the body is designed to function with a spine that’s straight and properly aligned, scoliosis curvature can result in strains and inflammation that can cause pain and other symptoms in the back and elsewhere throughout the body.
How Chiropractic Can help
Chiropractic care relies on spinal readjustment using carefully applied force and gentle stretching to relieve strain and reduce pressures on nerves and other tissues, eliminating the irritation and inflammation that can block normal signaling between the brain and other organs and tissues. By preserving healthy nerve pathways, organ function is optimized and pain and other symptoms are relieved. Spinal alignment also promotes healthy circulation to help ensure organs receive an ample supply of oxygen and nutrients while carrying away waste and toxins.
