Chiropractic for Scoliosis in Campbell, CA
Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spinal vertebra. This twist of the spine puts pressure on the nerves which exit the through the sides of the vertebra. This will cause compression or irritation to the nerves (subluxation) that go to the neck and back posture muscles. If undetected, the abnormal position and motion of the spine may cause accelerated degeneration of the vertebra and the discs.
When Does Scoliosis Occur?
- It usually begins as a result of the misalignment of vertebra over time. This deformity caused by the vertebral misalignment is difficult to recognize and is only noticed once there is an obvious deformity in the pelvis or shoulders.
- It may occur due to genetic disorders or a degenerative disease afflicting the patient.
Scoliosis could also be caused as a result of the abnormal structure of another part of the body such as one leg being shorter than the other.
- It could also be due to a birth defect related to irregular spinal formation.
