Chiropractic Care and Adult ScoliosisAdvanced Chiropractic Relief‘s Dr. Gregory Johnson, an award-winning Chiropractor in the US, offers chiropractic care for the relief of pain caused by scoliosis and improve your quality of life. It’s important to understand that scoliosis is absolutely treatable, but it is not technically curable and it requires ongoing care.

The American Chiropractic Association estimated that around five to seven million Americans suffer from scoliosis. Minor cases of scoliosis are typically invisible to the untrained eye. As the degree of curvature increases, scoliosis becomes more noticeable and can cause various health problems.

Understanding Scoliosis

Scoliosis is an irregular spine curvature. The spine is naturally meant to have three curves that creates an “S” shape from the side. A person with scoliosis has a lateral curve that is greater than 10 degrees, which typically causes an “S” or “C” figure from the front or the back view of the body. Many individuals suffering from scoliosis have obvious uneven shoulders, waist, and/or hips. They may also have noticeable rib humps or protrusion of the lower back on the side with the curve.

Adult scoliosis is a protraction of adolescent scoliosis, which is typically detected during a person’s teenage years. Most adolescent patients are initially diagnosed with Idiopathic Adolescent Scoliosis. Some individuals can develop scoliosis during their adult life, but most of them have had this condition for much of their adolescent life.

Adult scoliosis can create issues with your balance, as well as reduce your height as the lateral spine curvature bends the body shape out of proportion. If left untreated, it can potentially lead to numerous health issues. Even minor cases of scoliosis that a young child may have can cause degenerative disc disease and spinal osteoarthritis when they get older. Degenerative changes can ultimately interfere with nerve functions to vital organs and muscles, which can cause a series of additional health problems.

Types of Scoliosis

Congenital Scoliosis – This form of scoliosis is caused by bone abnormalities. Congenital scoliosis develops before birth.
Degenerative Scoliosis – This is can either be caused by a traumatic injury, bone deformity, osteoporosis, or even by a spinal surgery.
Idiopathic Scoliosis – This condition develops unexpectedly without any known cause. This type of scoliosis is the most common form and has been detected to run hereditarily.
Neuromuscular Scoliosis – This is typically seen in people with cerebral palsy or spinal bifida. It is caused by abnormal nerve or muscle formations.

Chiropractic Care

Many individuals with adult scoliosis are surprised when they find out that the use of chiropractic care can help reduce their pain significantly, prevent further spine degradation and improve their overall quality of life.
Chiropractic adjustments in the hands of a highly experienced chiropractor, such as Dr. Johnson, a leading Your Houston Chiropractor, will help improve the range of your spinal motion. It can also help eliminate the pressure on your nervous system and help straighten the abnormal sideways curvature of your spine.

At Advanced Chiropractic Relief, we believe that chiropractic treatments, in addition to the use of torso braces, is an excellent non-surgical option. Undergoing a major spine surgery could potentially cause complications. Sometimes the surgery fails to relieve back pain associated with scoliosis. Chiropractic care is a non-invasive option that can help bring the spine back to its proper posture or keep the spine curvature from progressing, completely restoring your spine’s normal function.
