Scoliosis Q & A

What causes scoliosis?

Scoliosis happens when the spine is not straight like an arrow but is curved to resemble an “S”.

It can be difficult to diagnose any given case’s exact cause, but some factors might include:

  • Hereditary disposition: If scoliosis runs in your family, you may be more likely to develop the condition.
  • Birth defects: If the spine development is affected during pregnancy or birth, this can cause scoliosis.
  • Health conditions: Diseases of a neuromuscular nature, like muscular dystrophy or cerebral palsy, can impact the shape of the spine.
  • Injury or trauma: A blow to the back or one area of the spine can also cause scoliosis.

The symptoms of scoliosis may be absent in childhood, but they tend to appear just before puberty. Females with the condition may experience more complications than males.

How does chiropractic treat scoliosis?

Scoliosis can cause many symptoms, but one of the most common complications is chronic back pain. Chiropractic care can address the structural issues of scoliosis that cause nerve compression and joint misalignment.

In addition to precise adjustments, Dr. Megan might also incorporate specific massage techniques or stretches to help support your spine health. Since scoliosis can affect muscle tension and coordination, exercises geared toward relieving stress and creating balance might also be part of your treatment plan.

When the spinal joints are repositioned, the brain must adapt to new movements and a different sense of mobility. Dr. Megan’s strives to ensure that this transition is safe and painless.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care?

Many patients experience immediate pain relief after just one adjustment, while they also learn how to move and manage their bodies for long-term stability and health. Plus, as a holistic and safe treatment method, chiropractic care can be an excellent complement to traditional medicine.

With Dr. Hondru’s proven expertise in treating children, teenagers, and adults, you can manage your scoliosis and experience more mobility at any age. Call the office or book your appointment today with the easy online scheduler.
