Scoliosis is a sideways curving of the spine that often gets started in childhood when bones of the spine are still growing. In many cases, the exact cause of scoliosis is unknown. It is thought that scoliosis is the result of a hereditary problem or an adaptation to some type of trauma, such as the birth process, or an injury such as falling off a bicycle. It usually starts with problems in the lower back or pelvis.
Scoliosis is detected by uneven shoulder heights, loss of structural balance, or a change in posture. If a spinal curve exists, this can result in pressure on the joints, discs, and nerves. Because spinal bones can continue to grow well into the early 20’s, if left uncorrected Scoliosis often worsens.
Early detection and chiropractic correction are important for optimum results. Isn’t it time you tried chiropractic care for you and your family? If you are experiencing any of the common symptoms below, please call our office now to schedule an appointment.
