Scoliosis is a sideways curve of the spine that generally results in stiffness and pain. Alot of times it is referred to as idiopathic, meaning the cause is unknown.
More girls tend to be afflicted than boys and it begins in childhood. It is very important that ALL children are screened by someone trained in scoliosis detection. When scoliosis is detected early enough chiropractic treatment will prevent it from worsening overtime.
Spinal adjustments can help improve this condition. Your chiropractor looks at your overall health, examining your spine as well as other factors of your lifestyle.
