Scoliosis is not a disease, but rather a term used to describe an abnormal side to side curvature of the spine that shows up as an “S” or “C” shape.
Early Detection and Management is KEY
Patients especially young kids who haven’t reached skeletal maturity (those who are still growing) are more likely to have progression of curves. Therefore, it is vital to pick up on postural changes as quickly as possible.
Signs of possible scoliosis:
A non-surgical option for the management of scoliosis includes a combination of chiropractic care and active rehabilitation. Goals of care include preventing the progression of the curve, improving strength and range of motion which allow them to continue with their physical activities, sports and daily routines.
