Scoliosis

Scoliosis

Scoliosis is not a disease, but rather it is a term used to describe any abnormal, sideways curvature of the spine. Scoliosis is often found in the adolescent and teen years and is more common in girls, although boys can get it as well. Scoliosis is a musculoskeletal disorder in which there is a sideways curvature of the spine, or backbone. When viewed from the side, the spine should show a mild roundness in the upper back and shows a degree of swayback, inward curvature, in the lower back. When a person with a normal spine is viewed from the front or back, the spine appears to be straight. This is the opposite with someone with scoliosis is viewed from the front or back, the spine appears to be curved. When scoliosis occurs, the spine can curve in one of three ways.

CORE Health Centers of Beaumont KY not only provides adults chiropractic adjustments, but kids as well. The chiropractic adjustment for kids is a therapeutic manipulation that uses controlled force, leverage, direction, amplitude, and velocity directed at specific joints that can help with scoliosis. This is particularly important, because after diagnoses, many kids and their concerned families are given one of three scoliosis treatment options, either “wait and watch” the spine for progression, use a spinal bracing, or undergo surgery. All of these treatment options pose risks to a kid’s health and don’t always solve the underlying problem. CORE Health Centers of Beaumont KY chiropractic care services can help children’s health by reducing the curve of the spine or ultimately stopping scoliosis all together.

Home Testing for Scoliosis

At CORE Health Centers we are dedicated to providing children, adults, and seniors with a healthier and more balanced way of life. With this in mind, we would like to provide you some ways that you can help determine if you or your child has scoliosis or not. There are several warning signs a CORE Health Centers’ chiropractor looks for that can help them determine if a child has scoliosis. You should refer yourself or your child to a CORE Health Centers’ chiropractor if you notice any of the following:

Treatment

Did you know that scoliosis is the number 1 spinal problem among children and adolescents? It’s true, as this spinal disorder affects up to 5 percent of school-aged children. Scoliosis not only affects children and adolescents, but adults the same. There is good news, CORE Health Centers of Beaumont KY can provide adults and kids chiropractic adjustments. The chiropractic adjustment for kids is a therapeutic manipulation that uses controlled force, leverage, direction, amplitude, and velocity directed at specific joints that can help with scoliosis. This is particularly important, because after diagnoses, many kids, adults, and their concerned families are given one of three scoliosis treatment options, either “wait and watch” the spine for progression, use a spinal bracing, or undergo surgery. All of these treatment options pose risks to a kid’s health and don’t always solve the underlying problem.

Adult Scoliosis

Adult scoliosis can develop as the result of an untreated childhood curvature. Adult scoliosis can also develop in a patient without any previous history of a scoliosis. When adult scoliosis develops in a patient with a previously straight spine, it is called adult degenerative scoliosis. Adult scoliosis typically arises from a combination of spinal degenerative conditions including disc degeneration, compression fracture, osteoporosis, and spinal stenosis. CORE Health Centers can provide adults chiropractic adjustments to help relief scoliosis. The chiropractic adjustment for adult scoliosis is a therapeutic manipulation that uses controlled force, leverage, direction, amplitude, and velocity directed at specific joints that can help with scoliosis. This is particularly important, because after diagnoses, many adults and their concerned families are given one of three scoliosis treatment options, either “wait and watch” the spine for progression, use a spinal bracing, or undergo surgery.
