Scoliosis is curvature of the spine. Scoliosis can be a serious condition and in rare cases can require surgery. Chiropractic can be a great asset when it comes to scoliosis. Scoliosis is much more prevalent in females and often has a genetic history. It is important for all girls to get a checkup before the age of 11. Research shows that if scoliosis is identified before the age of 11 the prognosis is good when a corrective program of chiropractic is administered. Except for the most severe cases of scoliosis, when surgery is required, chiropractic can still help, however correction is unlikely. Scoliosis is often incorrectly diagnosed, and patients will come in to our clinic having been advised by someone in the medical profession that they have scoliosis when in fact they don’t. Not all curvatures of the spine are scoliosis, in fact most curvatures of the spine are not scoliosis, and a lot can be done to correct the spine back to a normal posture, taking stress off the nervous system and allowing the body to heal naturally, and symptoms to abate.
