What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a chronic medical condition suffered by an estimated 6 million people in the United States. It is a common condition that affects the spine, causing it to curve in an abnormal shape. It can cause poor posture, difficulty in breathing, pain, stiffness, difficulty moving around and even fatigue. While this condition is not curable through conventional medical treatments, chiropractic care has been known to help those suffering from scoliosis. This article explains how chiropractic care helps with scoliosis and reduces the symptoms, and why it should be your first step in getting your health back.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Scoliosis
Chiropractic care is a form of healthcare that focuses on the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders and structures using manual manipulation of the spine and other joints, to correct any misaligned vertebrae or joints. The goal of chiropractic care is to reduce pain, improve mobility, and restore balance of the nervous system that affects the mental-emotional and physical body. It is often used as an alternative or complementary therapy for people suffering from chronic pain or injury-related conditions such as scoliosis.
A study published in 2018 found that after a series of regular chiropractic adjustments, patients experienced improved posture, decreased pain levels, increased flexibility of the spine, better joint mobility, reduced curvature of the spine, improved range of motion and more – all without resorting to surgery or medications. Additionally, regular chiropractic care can help prevent further spinal deformities associated with scoliosis by realigning misaligned vertebrae.
Chiropractic care is also beneficial for overall health and wellbeing. Regular adjustment sessions can help reduce stress levels, improve sleep quality and increase energy levels. By improving overall physical health and reducing stress levels, it can also help to alleviate some of the mental strain associated with living with a chronic condition like scoliosis.
No Quick Fixes, But Take Action Now
Taking action is always difficult when it comes to long-term medical conditions like scoliosis because there are no quick fixes or easy answers. It is, however, the first step towards better health—and this includes starting a course of chiropractic care. If you are suffering from this condition or know someone who is, consider consulting a professional chiropractor about how chiropractic care could help manage your symptoms and give you back your life.
Scoliosis can be a debilitating condition, but with proper management through chiropractic care, many people have seen great improvements in their symptoms over time—including reduced pain levels, improved mobility, and overall improved quality of life.
