Scoliosis Chiropractic Treatment in Garden City, MI
Scoliosis is a relatively common condition in the United States among adults and adolescents. Approximately three million new cases of scoliosis will be discovered annually.
Thought to be mostly a condition of the bones, scoliosis is a musculoskeletal condition wherein the spine, and its bones are curved in a direction they would not be in normal human anatomy. When looked at from the back, the spine may appear to curve laterally, or to one side. Most cases of scoliosis are noticed and first diagnosed in early adolescence, though diagnosis among adults is also not uncommon.
Many cases of scoliosis are only mild and do not require more intensive intervention such as bracing or surgical intervention. Many pediatricians and neurosurgeons favor a “wait-and-see” approach to scoliosis treatment. However, parents and people with scoliosis can be very concerned about what will happen if it left untreated or worsens.
The Role of Scoliosis Chiropractic Treatment
Scoliosis chiropractic treatment is a low-risk and non-invasive treatment for scoliosis that can effectively treat the condition and its associated symptoms. Chiropractic care is especially appropriate for scoliosis and related conditions of the back since the discipline specializes in the treatment of all disorders of the spine and nervous system.
Often, people with scoliosis suffer from considerable pain and discomfort associated with the condition. Their bodies may compensate for the curvature of their spine by using incorrect posture which can actually worsen the pain the scoliosis causes.
Chiropractic care works to provide spinal manipulations that can relieve pain caused by scoliosis. Scoliosis chiropractic treatment also works to help relieve problems caused by the body’s postural compensations for the curvature of the spine.
