Our Buffalo, NY, chiropractor and team can help with a variety of different issues, including scoliosis. We at West Buffalo Chiropractic are here to help.
What Is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine that often comes about around the teenage years and can last years or more. The spinal cord develops a curved side or twist that takes place during a growth spurt. A doctor can diagnose scoliosis and prescribe treatment. Scoliosis often varies in severity and cases can be mild or extreme, and can be quite painful. Common treatments include a brace, surgery, chiropractic treatments, and more. However, surgery isn't always necessary.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help Patients with Scoliosis?
A chiropractor can perform chiropractic adjustments that help align the spine and improve your posture. This can be achieved through manual manipulation. Some strength or force may be needed for this type of chiropractic adjustment. Once our chiropractor makes chiropractic adjustments, pain and discomfort in the neck, shoulders, back, and hips may be alleviated. Exercises and stretches can also be recommended by our chiropractor to help manage and improve scoliosis. A patient with scoliosis can see a chiropractor for scheduled adjustments over the course of a treatment period which might include multiple adjustments a week.
Manual and device driven adjustments may help improve pain, realign the spine, and improve posture. These techniques can help align the bones, muscles, and joints. Scoliosis can impact other parts of the body and create more discomfort when no treatment is received. The curvature of the spine can affect lung capacity which, in turn, can affect breathing. A curved frame can also make it difficult and painful to walk and stand as well.
Chiropractic care is a natural way to help achieve pain relief and to help get scoliosis treatment. We do not to rely on drugs or surgery to provide chiropractic care.
