Scoliosis and curvatures of the spine are more common in society than we think, ranging from slight distortional curves to severe deformities. Scoliosis is defined as a pronounced curve and may cause spinal health and postural issues. Curves are often in a C or S shape.
There are different types of Scoliosis:
Treatment, management and curve reduction is different in all cases, but the earlier the diagnosis and earlier the intervention the better the outcome and essentially a better quality of life will prevail. Common procedures include Physiotherapy, exercise programs, casting, bracing and surgery. Alternatively a program of Chiropractic care through gentle spinal manipulations can offer an effective non invasive treatment option before resorting to high risk surgery. Again, the earlier this treatment commences the more effective it will be.
If you have any doubts or concerns about your child developing Scoliosis, get them checked at the earliest opportunity by a Chiropractor who can recommend a management plan that is suited to the individual. Call 07 5534 5005 today and speak to Palm Beach Chiropractic about your options.
