Curved Spine Treatment in Inver Grove Heights
Many children and adults deal with a curved spine, though they may or may not experience pain related to that defect. A curvature of the spine is known as scoliosis. At Cahill Back & Neck Care Center, our chiropractor is an expert in using chiropractic care techniques to treat pain caused by scoliosis.
What Is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis, or a curved spine, is most commonly diagnosed in adolescence. Some people do not learn that they have a curved spine until adulthood. For some people, the curvature of the spine is so slight that there is no pain associated with the curve, and no treatment is needed. For others, the curvature of the spine is more severe, and it's important that corrective measures be taken to help realign the spinal column to prevent health problems and pain later in life. For many adults, scoliosis is found after they seek treatment for lower back pain. The curvature of the spine can cause pain down the spinal column, due to vertebrae being under an unusual amount of pressure. Many adults have lived with scoliosis for their entire lives, but have learned to live with or ignore the pain related to their spinal curve. Age related conditions, injury, or weight gain can all cause scoliosis pain to become worse over time. Patients are often surprised to learn that they do not have to live with the pain of scoliosis forever.
Curved Spine Treatment
While chiropractic treatment cannot fix scoliosis, it can help patients to improve joint mobility and improve the form and function of the spine. Often, chiropractic treatment for scoliosis is used in conjunction with a brace prescribed by a doctor to reverse or stop the curvature of the spine. Chiropractic treatment can help to decrease pain associated with a curved spine without relying on the use of painkilling medications. For patients who are interested in working through their scoliosis with a holistic approach, chiropractic care can provide a variety of options.
