Scoliosis Chiropractic Treatment in Waterford, MI
Scoliosis is a condition in which the spine develops in a curved trajectory rather than a straight line. This can cause several problems, including back pain and discomfort, pinched nerves, and compacted organs. When organs such as the lungs or heart become compacted due to scoliosis, it can have serious side effects.
How Does Scoliosis Happen?
Scoliosis can have several causes. Improper development during the pubescent growth spurt is the most common reason for scoliosis. Girls are typically more prone to serious bouts of scoliosis that require treatment. Some studies also suggest that scoliosis could be due to hereditary factors.
Other conditions that can cause scoliosis include muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, or improper development in the womb.
While living with scoliosis is a long-term reality, there are effective management options. Chiropractic treatment for scoliosis is a safe and natural approach to managing pain and discomfort associated with the condition.
Chiropractic care for scoliosis addresses the spine, muscles, and nerves. This is because as the spine curves and twists, it pulls the muscles and puts pressure on the nerves causing pain and discomfort.
One of the first steps your chiropractor will take is assessing your spine’s range of motion and rigidity. They will also monitor how well your brain is communicating with the electrical signals that make up the nervous system. When these signals become blocked due to misalignment in the spine, it can lead to ongoing issues including pain, infection, and digestive issues.
Your chiropractor will use gentle stretching, massage, and realignment techniques to relieve pain and pressure and to retrain your brain and spine to work together. Working with the professionals at Michigan Chiropractic Specialists for your scoliosis treatment can dramatically increase your quality of life.
