Scoliosis is a sideway curvature of the spine that can lead to a diminished quality of life. It keeps those affected from fully participating in physical activities due to pain, restricted respiratory function, and diminished self-esteem.
Despite this affecting over 7 million people, the cause of scoliosis is unknown, though it appears to involve hereditary traits.
While there is no sure cure for scoliosis, a chiropractor can help in managing the pain to improve the patient’s quality of life.
Since chiropractic care is a safe, non-invasive, and non-addictive alternate to pain medication, many patients prefer relying on chiropractors for pain management.
This is especially true for patients that are young since scoliosis most often occurs during growth spurt just before puberty.
At Yoon Family Chiropractic, we use treatments such as adjustments to provide a gentle reduction of joint restrictions and misalignments in the spine to reduce inflammation and improve function to the affected joint and the nervous system.
If you or your loved ones are suffering from scoliosis, a chiropractor may be able to help in alleviating their pain.
We, at Yoon Family Chiropractic, strive for everyone’s healthier and pain-free lives! ☺️
