What Is Scoliosis?

Scoliosis is an irregular sideways curvature that occurs in the spine, most often in adolescents during a growth spurt or just before puberty. The curves will commonly appear S or C-shaped. This curving can be caused by conditions such as muscular dystrophy or cerebral palsy, but the most common cause of scoliosis is unknown. While children are most commonly affected by this condition, adults can experience it as well.

Signs & Symptoms To Look For

While most cases of scoliosis in children are mild, some can develop spinal deformities that can become more severe as a child continues to grow. In some severe cases, scoliosis can become disabling. More aggressive types of scoliosis may require the attention of an Orthopedic specialist. You should seek treatment options as soon as possible to prevent the condition from worsening. Be on the lookout for certain signs and symptoms such as:

  • Uneven Shoulders
  • One More Prominent Shoulder Blade
  • One Hip Higher Than The Other
  • Uneven Waist

Scoliosis In Adults

Adults can suffer from Adult Idiopathic Scoliosis and Adult Degenerative Scoliosis, in addition to scoliosis developed early in life or caused by a separate syndrome. Adult Idiopathic Scoliosis is basically the continuation of Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis where the spine is slowly continuing to curve. Adult Degenerative Scoliosis is caused by degeneration of the discs, arthritis in the joints, or wedging of the disc spaces. Chiropractic treatment can help improve ease of motion and reduce pain caused by adult scoliosis.

Chiropractic Care For Scoliosis

Chiropractic adjustments and therapy can help improve form as well as joint mobility. Similar to most other treatments for scoliosis, chiropractic adjustments do not correct, cure or reverse the condition. It is effective in the care and management of scoliosis and can possibly reduce the symptoms of the condition, especially in children diagnosed early on. Chiropractic manipulation can help improve the alignment and function of the spine and is commonly recommended in addition to other treatments.
