Scoliosis is an abnormal sideways curve of the spine. Everyone’s spine has natural curves; however, those suffering from scoliosis have spines that also curve from side to side, independent from posture. The spine of a person with scoliosis looks more like an “S” or a “C” rather than a straight line. It usually begins as a postural distortion, but may eventually become a permanent deformity. When allowed to advance, it may interfere with the lungs, heart and many other vital organs.

Why Does Scoliosis Occur?

Scoliosis is called an idiopathic disease because the cause is unknown. It is often caused by neuromuscular conditions (cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy), birth defects that affect bones of the spine to develop, and infections of the spine. Other causes of scoliosis include bone collapse, major back surgery, and osteoporosis.

How Chiropractic Can Help Scoliosis:

Usually, scoliosis care depends on your age, how much you’re likely to grow, how much curving there is, and whether the curve is temporary or permanent. Significant research suggests that the function and structure of the spine can be manually manipulated by a chiropractic adjustment, thus relieving the discomfort associated with scoliosis.
