Scoliosis

Scoliosis Treatment in Emmett Idaho

Scoliosis is the technical term for the condition where the spine or spinal column as a whole curve at an unnatural angle. This can be caused by a wide range of factors, such as bone disease and growth problems, as well as appear during a growth spurt with no prior signs of spine curvature. The treatment plan for patients with scoliosis varies depending on the severity of the curve and the age of the patient. Children are easier to treat overall, but in many cases, traditional treatments are gradual and may not start until the child is done growing. For many older patients, invasive surgery may seem like the only option to help treat scoliosis. That is where chiropractic care comes into play.

Chiropractic treatment can help readjust slight spinal curvature and can help reduce the symptoms of more severe scoliosis, allowing you to live your life more comfortably. Severe scoliosis can cause nerve and leg pain, making day to day activities difficult or impossible depending on the intensity of the pain. By seeking out a chiropractor to help treat your scoliosis, you may be able to more easily manage your symptoms and get back to living your life pain-free. While chiropractic and traditional medical care are useful for managing scoliosis, keep in mind that scoliosis is not a one and done illness. For many people, scoliosis requires constant treatment throughout their life in order to ensure that the spine does not migrate back to the same position it was in before.

Here are some of the ways chiropractic care can help treat and manage scoliosis.

Chiropractic Treatment for Scoliosis

Your chiropractor can help treat your scoliosis through a wide range of treatment plans ranging from gradual therapy to general realignment. While your chiropractor cannot simply shift your spine into perfect alignment, they can help gradually adjust more slight spine curves back to a more natural position. For more severe cases of scoliosis, while surgery may still be the only option to fully fix more debilitating back issues, your chiropractor can help ease some of your long-term symptoms before and after surgery. Through pain management techniques and total spinal health treatment plans, your chiropractor will work with you to help ensure that your spine is as healthy as possible despite your scoliosis.

Scoliosis can put strain on other areas of the back and body as well as the spine and can lead to regular misalignment along the lower back as your body tries to compensate for a curved spine. Your chiropractor can use gradual treatment processes to shift your body closer to a more balanced alignment, taking some of the strain off of the more delicate nerves and tissues in your body. While your chiropractor may be unable to completely cure your scoliosis, they can help reduce your symptoms and prevent more serious damage on other parts of your body.
