Scoliosis is a condition that can affect any age group but is most commonly found in children aged between 10 and 15. The condition is characterised by a curvature of the spine which causes it to lean to one side rather than being straight as in a healthy individual. The condition is not usually indicative of a serious problem. However, it is worth noting that it will not improve without treatment.
Here at Blue Tree Clinics, our chiropractors in Dubai have been specially trained and certified to provide effective treatments to help manage the effects of scoliosis. Scoliosis should never be treated like any other spinal condition and to do so could cause further damage. By choosing Blue Tree Clinics, you can have peace of mind that our experts know exactly what they are doing.
What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is where the spine twists and curves to one side, which will need effective and professional medical treatment to resolve. At Blue Tree Clinics, our highly knowledgeable and experienced team of medical professionals can offer just that. We understand that each case of scoliosis is different. With this in mind, we pride ourselves on providing care that is tailored to our patient’s individual needs.
While it isn’t typically a sign of anything serious, Scoliosis can cause pain and discomfort, as well as issues such as ill-fitting clothes and the need to wear a back brace. While scoliosis can affect anyone at any age, the condition typically starts in children aged from 10 to 15 years old. At Blue Tree Clinics, our team possess a wealth of knowledge about the treatment and management of scoliosis in infants, children and adults, making us the ideal option to assist.
In the case of idiopathic scoliosis, the cause is usually unknown though it is agreed that genetics may play a large role and that this form of scoliosis is hereditary. It is also not preventable. Congenital scoliosis occurs as a result of the spine not developing correctly while in the womb. Neuromuscular scoliosis is a result of a muscle or nerve condition such as cerebral palsy. Finally, degenerative scoliosis is, quite simply, a result of wear and tear that affects those of advanced age.
Whatever the cause, those suffering from scoliosis in Dubai typically report experiencing the same symptoms which include:
- Uneven shoulders
- Visibly curved spine
- Shoulder or hip that sticks out
- Ribs that protrude on one side
- Back pain
Scoliosis Treatment in Dubai
While scoliosis is not curable, it can be managed and thanks to our effective treatments, you can lead a fulfilling life. In order to keep scoliosis under control, the condition must be kept in check by an ongoing treatment plan. Our approach to scoliosis is different to other spinal conditions – we recognise that treating it in the same manner can result in more serious damage.
Our chiropractors in Dubai are fully trained and qualified to effectively diagnose and treat scoliosis. As scoliosis typically affects the positioning of joints rather than the person’s mobility, the care plan that we devise is tailored accordingly. As part of our treatment for scoliosis in Dubai, we combine stretching and exercise with spinal adjustments for maximum effect.
It can be difficult to adapt when you are required to use your muscles and bones in a different way to what you are normally accustomed to. Our Dubai chiropractors will assist you with advice and lifestyle coaching so you can go about your daily life unhindered.
