New Breakthrough Non-Surgical Scoliosis Therapy – A.S.B.E.

(Applied Spinal Biomechanical Engineering)

Scoliosis is a sideways twisting and bending of the spine, ribs, and pelvis. This affects the muscles and ligaments of the spinal column. In many cases, it is caused by spinal misalignments due to prior stress and injuries. Most cases of this type can be corrected or improved with the use of the non-surgical scoliosis treatment by Advanced Health Center of San Jose, California.

Throughout the centuries, physicians have regarded scoliosis as a spinal disorder, or a lateral curvature of the spine. During the later 20th century, internal bracing was recommended (surgery). Advancements of modern medicine have recognized idiopathic scoliosis as a complex disease. Scoliosis attacks the muscles and ligaments of the spinal column, causing a sideways (lateral) twisting and rotation of the spine, ribs, and pelvis.

Physicians now understand that symptoms of scoliosis may vary on an individual basis. Many may experience mood swings, headaches, digestive problems, menstrual-cycle disturbances, leg, hip and knee pain. The old “wait and see” or “no treatment is needed because the degree of the curve is to small” advice leads to painful adult scoliosis. This new knowledge reveals curve progression continues throughout life, but the degree of deformity may accelerate according to hormonal stress, diet, exercise, and genetic makeup.

Non-Surgical Spinal Correction

Your spine is designed to move, but misalignment and improper or lost movement of the joints can interfere with your nervous system, causing pain or other obvious symptoms, and lead to spinal degeneration if left untreated. While your spine can be adjusted to restore normal position with chiropractic adjustments, the ligaments supporting the spine may have become injured and accustomed to years of improper support.

Therefore, proper support and movement cannot be fully corrected by adjustments alone. When specific exercises or maneuvers recommended by our doctor are combined with spinal treatments , the supporting ligaments can be retrained and your spine has its best chance to return to normal position and movement on a more permanent basis.

The Advanced Health Center of San Jose, California, has undergone specialized additional studies in Applied Spinal Biomechanical Engineering. The principles and procedures learned in these clinical seminars helps the Board Certified Doctor to determine the direction of any misalignment or improper motion in your spine, using specialized motion x-rays . For patient safety, a state-of-the-art x-ray filtration system is used to extremely reduce x-ray dosage by an average of 94%. From these x-rays, spinal corrective exercises are developed on an individual basis and given to the patient. These exercises have such a profound effect, that when follow up x-ray views of your spine are taken, restored motion will be quite apparent, depending on how consistently you’ve done the exercises.

These specific exercises are performed by the patient at home and at the clinic. In addition, the patient receives chiropractic spinal treatments to improve function. The combination of the two will restore position, motion, function and flexibility of the spine.
