What specific problems can chiropractic help?
Scoliosis is characterized by a lateral curve(s) in the spine that deviate from the central line of the vertebrae. It can affect the nerves that exit the spinal column through the vertebrae and cause premature degeneration of the vertebrae or the discs.
Chiropractors perform a series of exams, both neurological and structural, to verify where in the spine the nerves and surrounding structures are compromised and how they affect the body’s health.
Back pain can occur suddenly and increase in severity over time due to various factors such as a fall or improper lifting. There are many different degrees of pain, from mild to constant pain, to sudden sharp twinges, that hinder normal daily movement.
The chiropractor will assess the bio-mechanics and posture of the spine to verify which areas need to focused on in order to reduce the pain and degeneration of the spine.
The loss of the natural curves of the spine can contribute to unequal distribution of body weight on the spine. This can cause certain areas of the spine to become overloaded eventually leading to degeneration and herniated discs.
The chiropractor will focus both short and long term care to not only alleviate pain in the affected area but also help to prevent further degeneration.
