Treatments for Scoliosis
Treatment for scoliosis focuses on problems related to spinal discs, connective tissues, and conditions that could be causing your back pain. Our chiropractor can use massage therapy, electrostimulation, and other chiropractic treatments that help ease swelling and inflammation in soft tissues. As the swelling and inflammation decrease, the pressure on the nerve endings is alleviate, which might be causing muscle spasms and back pain.
Scoliosis can put a lot of pressure on spinal discs and cause them to become swollen. This can result in throbbing pain and makes it difficult to sleep or stand on your feet for extended periods. Our chiropractor can perform chiropractic adjustments that help align the spine, which reduces the pressure on the spinal discs and connective tissue. We can also suggest nutritional changes that can help eliminate any excess body weight that may be contributing to the pressure and resulting in pain that often accompanies scoliosis.
Another effective treatment that is highly beneficial for scoliosis is spinal decompression. We can use a special table to secures your upper and lower body while we gently stretch your back and spine just a to relieve the pressure that is causing the pain. Since scoliosis puts pressure on your spinal discs, decompression helps to straighten your spine and provide relief. Since scoliosis has no cure, the condition can’t be completely eliminated, however, treatment can identify the cause and help alleviate any pain.
