Suffering From Scoliosis in Huntersville?

scoliosis care is helped by with chiropractic care

Are you looking for the best chiropractor in Huntersville that cares for scoliosis? Typically, scoliosis begins as a minor bend in the spine that gradually progresses over a lifetime. A diagnosis of scoliosis is made when the spine curves more than ten degrees to the right or left when a patient is facing the examiner. Once the spine has advanced to more extreme stages of scoliosis there can be severe health consequences.

The good news is that if the bending of the spine is discovered early on, and Chiropractic care is received, it can be prevented from advancing to a debilitating state. This article will give you a brief glimpse into how scoliosis develops and the impact that it has on one's health. It will also show how scoliosis can be identified, and how chiropractic care in Huntersville can work to reverse its effects and return your body to full health.


What is Scoliosis?

People with scoliosis have a side-to-side curve in the spine that can look like an “S” or a “C”. Scoliosis is when the vertebrae form a curved line instead of being straight. This curve also is indicated by a rotation (twist), like a corkscrew. Scoliosis is a three dimensional manifestation of tension of your spinal cord which is why it takes a trained professional to analyze the three dimensions to individualize treatment. Each scoliosis is unique. Therefore, deserves unique treatment.


What are the Signs and Symptoms of Scoliosis?

Children of any age –even infants—can have scoliosis. The most common kind of scoliosis is called idiopathic scoliosis. This type of scoliosis is a bit of a medical mystery. No one knows for sure why people get it, but research shows that it can run in families.

  • This type of scoliosis isn’t caused by things like carrying a heavy backpack, bad posture, playing sports – or anything else you might do. You don’t have any control over whether you get scoliosis.
  • Sometimes it’s easy to see. A curve in the spine can make the body tilt to the left or right. If you have scoliosis, it might look like you are leaning to one side. Some people have one shoulder higher than the other or one shoulder blade that sticks out more than the other.
  • While xrays are definitive, other symptoms of scoliosis may include: poor balance, grinding or clenching of the jaw, consistent fatigue mid-day, forward head appearance, shoulder and hip rotation and poor lung capacity.
  • Scoliosis in children and young adults can get worse almost exponentially during growth spirts. As the body grows, so does the scoliosis. A proactive approach helps to limit the detriments that can occur due to either a lack of treatment or the lack of proper treatment.
