Scoliosis Medication in Waterford, MI

Scoliosis, a condition that affects around 9 million people in the United States, is curable when detected at its early stages. With the proper scoliosis medication, you can prevent your scoliosis from worsening to the point of being debilitating.

Scoliosis

Scoliosis is when the spine curves at an angle more than 10 degrees to either side. It typically starts out as a small curve resulting from spinal misalignment. In order for the spine to keep the head at the proper angle the muscles surrounding the unnatural curve buildup creating imbalances.

Diagnosis

Most elementary schools run tests to catch scoliosis in the early stages. A medical professional will ask the patient to slowly bend forward leading with the head. If scoliosis is present the examiner witnesses a C-shaped or S-shaped curve.

Once diagnosed let Drs. Adam and Amanda Apfelblat help bring you better health and a better way of life with scoliosis medication before your condition worsens.

Causes

In a majority of scoliosis cases, the exact cause is still a mystery. In some cases accidents, postural issues, and degenerative diseases lead to the development of scoliosis. Scoliosis develops in children most commonly during growth spurts at around the age of 10-12.

Risks

Without proper scoliosis treatment, your lung and heart capacity may diminish as the curvature worsens. If left untreated it can lead to physical disability, re-occurring injuries, and sciatica.
At the first sign of scoliosis seek out treatment immediately before this condition affects your health.
