Scoliosis is a disorder of the spine that causes abnormal curvature. Scoliosis occurs most often in individuals when they are experiencing their growth spurt just before puberty. Many cases can be mild and with very few symptoms while other cases of scoliosis can worsen over time and become quite disabling.
Symptoms of scoliosis include uneven shoulders and hips, a bump in the lower back, numbness or weakness in the legs, pain in the extremities, trouble with mobility, trouble standing, exhaustion, and more.
Chiropractic can help reduce pain without drug intervention, not to mention help the spine and the rest of the body communicate in a more optimized capacity. Chiropractic adjustments can also correct spinal misalignment and help improve flexibility and range of motion.
Beyond that, chiropractic treatment can also help patients achieve a more restful night of sleep, reduce depression, and improve digestion.
