Scoliosis before and after treatment

Can Scoliosis be Helped by Chiropractic Care?

The definition of scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine. Scoliosis most commonly begins during childhood and affects approximately 3% of the population. Not everyone who suffers from scoliosis will require surgery, but they may endure pain and other complications as a result. If you’re looking for a noninvasive approach to help with your scoliosis symptoms, a chiropractor can help.

Diagnosis and Treatment

If you think you might be suffering from scoliosis, a chiropractor will complete a thorough evaluation along with imaging studies, which most often includes a few x-rays and a physical evaluation. These imaging studies show a clear picture of your spine, which is important when developing a treatment plan based on your individual needs.

The treatment plan outlines the frequency of your visits, the projected duration of your visits, what types of therapies will be utilized, and education on home exercises. Initially, your chiropractor will want to see you a few times weekly until your spine starts adapting to the changes and proper alignment. As treatment progresses, your visits will decrease in frequency to the point of only needing routine maintenance.

Talk with Your Physician

Since scoliosis is a lifelong condition, it is important to ask your doctor the following:

  1. How often do you need chiropractic adjustments?
  2. How many times should you get adjusted by a chiropractor?
