How Can Chiropractic Help Scoliosis?

man with painful spine

Experts estimate that 9 million Americans currently have scoliosis. Diagnosed typically in early childhood, scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine. It is distinctly characterized by uneven shoulders, raised hips, or rib misalignment. However, there is no “cure” for scoliosis, only an ongoing treatment plan to manage living with scoliosis. The good news is that chiropractic care can help relieve the symptoms of scoliosis and treat pain. But, just how can chiropractic help scoliosis? Keep reading to find out.

How Can Chiropractic Help Scoliosis? By Helping You:

1. Improve Mobility

Chiropractors are able to take note of how scoliosis is affecting your range of motion. Then, they can come up with an effective treatment plan. One of the main goals with chiropractic care for scoliosis will be improving joint mobility and functionality. Your chiropractor can teach a set of exercises and perform specific adjustments carefully for scoliosis patients. In addition, scoliosis patients often suffer from muscle tension and poor posture. To address that, adjustments your chiropractor performs will be aimed at making movement easier. Over time, we seek to correct the restrictive posture that abnormal spine curvature often creates.

2. Stop Chronic Pain

Those diagnosed with scoliosis often report chronic back pain due to the misalignment of their natural spine curvature. This added pressure on affected nerves and muscles can create stiffness and pain – especially in the lower back. In addition, the weight of scoliosis braces can add more pain. Your chiropractor can use spinal adjustments, along with massage, to reduce pain. Because better posture is proven to reduce back pain, good chiropractic care will seek to re-teach proper posture to clients with scoliosis.

3. Regain Confidence

With improved movement and pain management, many scoliosis patients will regain the confidence they deserve – and feel physically and emotionally better. Seeking chiropractic care can help a patient with scoliosis build up their self-esteem since they are able to live a more comfortable life with better posture. When you can see the improvement chiropractic care can add, insecurity, or doubt caused by scoliosis may diminish.
