Scoliosis is an abnormal, curvature of the spine. Scoliosis has many causes, some due to injury while others are inherited. One common reason for scoliosis is abnormal development of the vertebra in the spine. The most common form of scoliosis is an abnormal pattern of muscle and ligament growth as a teenager grows in height.
Doctors of Chiropractic are trained to recognize scoliosis or the potential for developing scoliosis. With early detection, chiropractic treatment can correct many cases of scoliosis.
If you or your child have been diagnosed or think you may have scoliosis, consult a Doctor of Chiropractic for evaluation.
