What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine that occurs most often during the growth spurt just before puberty. While scoliosis can be caused by conditions such as cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, the cause of most scoliosis is unknown.
Why manual therapy like Chiropractic?
Correcting the shape of a scoliosis with manual therapy is an unrealistic goal. However manual therapy (such as Chiropractic Care) can improve function of the spine and treat the source of pain. Gentle joint articulation and soft tissue techniques help to increase joint movement and decrease stiffness and muscular tension. In changing the goal of treatment, the curve is still there, but it is easier to live with and an effective way to manage chronic pain.
