Scoliosis and Chiropractic Care

Scoliosis is defined as an abnormal curvature of the spine and is a condition that affects millions of people. Some have such a mild case that they never notice any symptoms. On the other side of the line are those with such a severe curvature that it can cause intense pain and suffering. Unfortunately, it’s not a condition that can be cured, but the symptoms can be addressed through chiropractic care. Learn how in the guide below from Dr. Marranca of Exeter, PA.

What’s So Wrong With a Curve?

Though your spine naturally curves at some points, such as in the lower back, the bones are still neatly stacked on top of one another. With scoliosis, there’s an abnormal and unnatural sideways curve in how the bones sit. As such, it causes undue pressure on the spinal discs, muscles, connective tissue, and other spinal components. In severe cases, it can put undue pressure on organs and make it difficult to breathe.

How Is It Treated?

Surgery is available to correct scoliosis. However, the curvature has to be pretty intense for surgery to be an option. Additionally, surgical procedures always come with risks and take time to recover. Chiropractic care offers a natural way to reduce symptoms and even prevent the curvature from worsening.

Adjustments are one of the top methods utilized. These involve using a controlled amount of force to improve spinal alignment.

Decompression therapy is also beneficial, as it focuses on stretching the spinal column. This stretching helps create space for the various spinal components and removes undue pressure from them.

Therapeutic exercises are also recommended. These are very targeted movements that help keep the spine stretched and more flexible, as well as strengthen core muscles to improve your spinal column support. Regular visits to your chiropractor – in addition to the recommended exercises – can help relieve your symptoms and potentially prevent surgery from ever being needed.
