Did you know that scoliosis is the number 1 spinal problem among children and adolescents? It’s true, as this spinal disorder affects up to 5 percent of school-aged children. Scoliosis not only affects children and adolescents, but adults the same. There is good news, CORE Health Centers of Ashland KY can provide adults and kids chiropractic adjustments. The chiropractic adjustment for kids is a therapeutic manipulation that uses controlled force, leverage, direction, amplitude, and velocity directed at specific joints that can help with scoliosis. This is particularly important, because after diagnoses, many kids, adults, and their concerned families are given one of three scoliosis treatment options, either “wait and watch” the spine for progression, use a spinal bracing, or undergo surgery. All of these treatment options pose risks to a kid’s health and don’t always solve the underlying problem. CORE Health Centers of Ashland KY chiropractic care services can help adult’s and children’s health by reducing the curve of the spine or ultimately stopping scoliosis all together.
Chiropractic Treatment for Scoliosis
A CORE Health Centers’ chiropractor can diagnose scoliosis and is specially trained to treat the problems of the spine. We are able to accurately determine the extent of the condition. X-rays may be used to determine the rotation and direction of the curve. If scoliosis is left untreated, it can cause serious medical problems. Pain, stiffness, and sever spinal deformity can result. The spine and rib cage are connected and the abnormal curvature of the spine can change the position of the ribs and put pressure on nearly organs. Health risks from severe curvature include neurological problems from pressure on nerves, arthritis and even lung and heart problems.
