How Regular Chiropractic Care Can Help Increase Joint Mobility For Those With Scoliosis
Scoliosis is a condition where there is a curvature in the spine. While it’s usual for the spine to curve slightly from front to back, a sideways curve is regarded as abnormal. It could be a single curve (c-curve scoliosis) or two or more curves (s-curve scoliosis). Scoliosis can lead to back pain and can affect other parts of the body too, including the ribs, shoulders, hips, neck, and knees. Scoliosis is usually noticed before puberty when children go through a growth spurt, but it can be spotted later in life too.
When scoliosis is causing you problems, there are various treatments that can help. One option available to you is to see a Chiropractor, who can help you to manage the effects of your condition.
How Can Chiropractic Treatment Help?
Chiropractic treatment doesn’t cure scoliosis or immediately straighten the spine. However, it is used to help with joint mobility. It is used to help clients improve their posture, the quality of their movements, and how they function physically.
The aim is to reduce pain and discomfort and help people with scoliosis to benefit from a greater range of movement and overall better quality of life.
A chiropractor can offer a natural approach to address the issues caused by scoliosis, which can be particularly useful for people who might want to avoid the use of drugs or invasive treatments.
Chiropractors are knowledgeable about the muscles, joints, and various musculoskeletal conditions. According to the American Chiropractic Association, up to seven million people in the US have scoliosis. The expert chiropractors at Vida Integrated Health offer chiropractic adjustments and other treatments to help with scoliosis and the discomforts that it can cause. We provide comprehensive chiropractic care to help with misalignment’s, muscles and tendons, joints, and soft tissue manipulation.
Some of the symptoms that you might want help with include:
- uneven hips
- one shoulder blade higher than the other
- difficulty breathing due to problems with the ribs
- chronic back pain or muscle spasms
Treatments a Chiropractor Can Use for Scoliosis
Chiropractors can make recommendations for care to help reduce or relieve pain and discomfort caused by scoliosis. They can help to improve posture and increase range of motion, as well as help patients to strengthen their core and reduce pressure on their nervous system. Chiropractors can recommend advice such as strengthening exercises for the joints, the best ways to move and rest for minimal pain, and how to stay active in a healthy way.
Long-term chiropractic treatment is most beneficial for people who have scoliosis. The accumulative effect of chiropractic adjustments and other therapies over time can provide results that last longer.
Studies have shown that chiropractic treatment can be beneficial for people with scoliosis, improving the angle of the curvature, reducing pain, and lowering disability ratings too.
