What Is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a disease that causes the spinal column to curve to the left or right. It usually causes the spine to take on a “C” shape. Each scoliosis case is unique with different factors and causes. A Chiropractor will correct misalignments in the spine to improve the posture and manage symptoms.A patient with scoliosis will usually lean to the side when standing or walking, which could lead to other problems over time. Here are some common causes:
– A physical genetic deformity, such as being born with one leg shorter than the other.
– A birth defect, such as down syndrome, cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy.
– Muscle spasms and inflammation of the spinal column.
– Subluxation in Pelvis or Upper Cervical area
