Visible signs you should look out for when assessing you or your family member may include:
- Unevenly Fitted Clothes
- Asymmetrical Shoulders
- Awkward Change In Gait
- Trouble Breathing
- Back & Neck Pain
What Causes A Curved Spine
Scoliosis can be caused by birth defects, genetics, and other preexisting conditions, but for most, the cause is unknown. It often appears in children, more commonly during growth spurts in teen years. Girls are more likely than boys to develop this problem and chiropractic care during these years is vital because this is a condition that won’t just go away as the child grows into adulthood.
Chiropractic Care For Spinal Curvature
Strange walking strides and awkward standing positions are more noticeable to the trained eye. Chiropractors who specialize in scoliosis treatment can assess the curvature of the spine with both visual and mobility tests. Surgical procedures may be best for severe cases.
