Scoliosis is a spinal condition that results in an abnormal curvature, producing a lateral "S" or "C" curve greater than 10 degrees in the spine. Although most people will not notice the side-to-side (lateral) curve, you will still be able to identify uneven shoulders, hips, and maybe even a hump in the rib area.
Scoliosis can cause pain, stiffness, and tension in the back, which can also affect other areas of the body. Scoliosis can begin as a child and increase with age, but with early detection and treatment, the symptoms of scoliosis may have a better chance of being relieved.
By monitoring overall health and making significant lifestyle changes, a person can learn to live a healthy life even with scoliosis. Chiropractic care can help to reduce the symptoms of scoliosis by allowing the central nervous system to communicate freely with the rest of the body. Although chiropractic care will not fix spines with scoliosis, this treatment can help with the pain and stiffness associated with this condition.
