Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine. At first, it is a postural distortion, but it can become a permanent deformity that affects the lungs, heart, and other vital organs. When the spine curves, it affects the nervous systems ability to communicate. Through spinal manipulation, chiropractic techniques are designed to align the spine and open neurological pathways. Dr. Angela Young and staff can advise stretches and exercises to help straighten the spine. If not corrected, scoliosis can lead to hip problems, arthritis, balance issues, loss of stature, and leg pain.
Do you think you have scoliosis? Has a doctor diagnosed you with scoliosis? Do you think the only way to correct scoliosis is through extensive and invasive spinal surgery? Did you know that scoliosis can cause immediate organ dysfunction, arthritis, and neurological deficits that cause disease? Ninety five percent (95%) of scoliosis is caused through daily functions such as trauma, muscle asymmetry; poor ergonomics at work, repetitious movements like bending, wearing heavy backpacks, etc.
