Chiropractic Treatment for Scoliosis in Campbell and Los Gatos

What is Scoliosis?

Scoliosis is a problem that causes curvature of the patient's spine over the course of time. Every person's spine has a regular curve, but those afflicted with scoliosis have additional curves due to the twisting of the spinal vertebra. Therefore it is important for the patient to be vigilant about such problems before it gets out of hand.

When does Scoliosis Occur?

There are many different reasons why scoliosis can occur in a patient's life:

  • It usually begins as a result of the misalignment of a single 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 a regular spinal formation.

How can Chiropractic Care Help People with Scoliosis?

The chiropractor studies the patient's medical history and devises a treatment based on the diagnosis. Chiropractors provide treatment that is centered around improving the overall condition of the patient through a holistic process, without traditional medication and surgical procedures. The chiropractor’s main role in this process is to perform spinal adjustments and then help in the restoration process of the spine. Good chiropractors study your day-to-day life, lifestyle habits, and examine any previous traumas that could be the cause of scoliosis, in order to further prevent its onset.

If you are facing problems with your back and feel that it is affecting your life then it is necessary to contact a chiropractor. The chiropractor will provide you with help and support that conventional methods cannot. With such extensive care and help, the problems that are afflicting you will no longer seem like such a bother.
