Meaning Of Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine that occurs most often during the growth spurt just before puberty. While scoliosis can be caused by conditions such as cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, the cause of most scoliosis is unknown. About 3% of adolescents have scoliosis.
Most cases of scoliosis are mild, but some spine deformities continue to get more severe as children grow. Severe scoliosis can be disabling. An especially severe spinal curve can reduce the amount of space within the chest, making it difficult for the lungs to function properly.
Doctors don’t know what causes the most common type of scoliosis although it appears to involve hereditary factors, because the disorder tends to run in families. Less common types of scoliosis may be caused by:
- Neuromuscular conditions, such as cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy
- Birth defects affecting the development of the bones of the spine
- Injuries to or infections of the spine
There are lots of misconceptions about scoliosis and pain. While many consider scoliosis to be a painless condition, those with a diagnosis might disagree. Part of the misconception about scoliosis being a painless condition is rooted in truth, but that’s only the case in certain forms of the condition and within a certain age group.
Benefit Of Regular Chiropractic Care For Scoliosis Pain?
Below are some of the health benefits chiropractic care and chiropractic adjustments can provide to scoliosis patients to relieve pain:
- Reduced pain and discomfort
- Decreased inflammation
- Improved range of motion
- Improved flexibility
- Increased activity and lifestyle
Chiropractic care can be a great way to manage and relieve pain and discomfort caused by scoliosis. Regular chiropractic care provides patients with scoliosis treatment that’s a safe, non-invasive, non-addictive alternative to prescription medications or over-the-counter pain medications which are commonly prescribed to patients to help them manage their pain.
Chiropractors deliver a gentle, non-invasive, non-addictive therapy, known as a chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic adjustments reduce joint restrictions or misalignments in the spine and other joints in the body in an effort to reduce inflammation and improve the function of both the affected joint and nervous system. By increasing joint mobility and improving your nervous system function and spinal health, your body has the ability to better manage symptoms caused by scoliosis
Conclusively, Chiropractic Adjustments can serve as a natural method of reducing scoliosis-related pain and discomfort. It can help restore functions, strengthen spine-supporting muscles, and improve the body’s overall ability to adapt to the spinal curvature.
