Scoliosis

Understanding Scoliosis

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 misalignment due to prior stress and injuries. 

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 in modern medicine have recognized idiopathic scoliosis as a complex disease. Scoliosis attacks the muscles and ligaments of the spinal column, causing a sideways twisting and rotation of the spin, 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 too 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 Scoliosis Therapy

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.

We have undergone extensive training and are certified in Applied Spinal Biomechanical Engineering (A.S.B.E.) and the procedures learned allows us to uniquely identify the direction of any misalignment or improper motion in your spine using specialized motion x-rays. From these x-rays, we develop spinal corrective exercises on an individual basis to fit the needs of each patient. The specific exercises designed for you are performed at home and at our clinic. The exercises performed have such a profound effect that in follow up x-rays restored motion will be quite apparent, depending on how consistently the patient has kept to the exercise schedule. In addition, the patient receives chiropractic spinal treatments to improve function. The combination of the two will restore position, motion, and flexibility of the spine.

"After the treatments here, my left knee pain is almost completely gone!"

"I had daily knee pain for 2 years that lasted all day long. It was a sharp pain and getting worse. It made it hard to walk and stand still. It would get worse going up stairs and walking. I tried medications and injections, but finally gave up on that. After the treatments here, my left knee pain is almost completely gone!"

"I can now play 18 holes of golf and walk the next day!"

“Before I started the treatment, my feet were on fire, like walking on broken glass and it was affecting my golf game! This had been going on for 5 or 6 years. Golf is my life. I couldn’t play 18 holes, and if I did I couldn’t walk the next day. My feet would swell and I couldn’t put on my shoes. I’m still receiving treatment but the pain has significantly reduced and the swelling is gone! The guys I play golf with noticed I don’t limp as much. I can now play 18 holes of golf and walk the next day!”

"I still have no pain at all in my legs, ankles, or knees!"

"They led me through a program that resulted in my legs and ankles becoming free of pain. Before the end of the treatment routine, an additional wonder was that my knees were free of any pain, also!! A month following my treatment, I still have no pain at all in my legs, ankles, or knees!!"
