The term scoliosis is used for any sideways curving of the spine. This S-shaped or C-shaped spinal curve can be caused by several conditions or appear for no reason at all. Some are painful, others are not. A chiropractor is experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of scoliosis.
After first taking X-rays to assess each patient, chiropractic addresses muscular, skeletal and neurological systems through gentle and effective hands-on treatment. This reduces the inflammation and muscle spasm, decreasing the pain associated with scoliosis.
