Treatment and Management of Scoliosis
Our scoliosis treatment and management incorporate the best clinical practices of Chiropractors and Physiotherapists. Over the years we have treated thousands of spine patients non-surgically and through research-based holistic procedures. Our successes in scoliosis treatment have been significant. We have changes the lives of many patients and hope to do the same for you.
Scoliosis is the presence of an abnormal side-bending curvature in the spine. A Scoliotic curve is eight times more likely to occur in girls than in boys. Scoliosis is affecting millions of kids, and it is becoming more common than a few decades ago.
Chiropractic is one of the few health care professions that focuses on scoliosis. Chiropractic care is a natural method of treatment, without any involvement of invasive surgery or medication. According to the Foundation for Chiropractic Education and Research, chiropractic care can have a beneficial impact on scoliosis.
Research has shown that the chiropractic adjustments can result in a reduction of abnormal lateral spinal curvature. The researchers of this published research were studying the effect of chiropractic’s full-spine adjustment procedures, heel lifts and postural counseling for children 9-15 years old with mild idiopathic scoliosis.
In our centers, our chiropractors will take all the needed time to evaluate your child properly. Our methods of evaluation include assessments for pelvic rotations, muscular imbalances, short leg syndromes, congenital anomalies that could have predisposed your child to scoliosis and much more before we do any treatments. We will review x-rays, MRI and any additional information regarding your child before we establish a customized scoliosis plan.
Targeted low force spinal adjustments in scoliosis treatment of our patients is through an instrument known as the “Activator.”
The chiropractic adjustments rendered for scoliosis in our centers vary widely than those offered by others; this holds especially true for our younger scoliosis patients. We do not and will not use the side bending and twisting chiropractic methods, as kids with scoliosis already have too much bending and twisting in their spines.
The Chiropractors and Physiotherapists of a Chiropractic Specialty Center will suggest heel lifts if warranted. The purpose of heel lifts is to provide stability and balance the inequalities if discovered during the leg length analysis.
Apart from what we have said already, Chiropractic Specialty Centers offers flexion/distraction treatment. Flexion/ distraction is an effective, safe and gentle treatment used in conjunction with chiropractic care on patients. This procedure enhances therapeutic benefits and maximizes the effectiveness of each scoliosis treatment.
