Yes, you can have an active life with scoliosis.
Scoliosis is defined by an abnormal curve of the spine. When you look at the spine from the back, it should form a straight line; if it shows curvature, it’s called scoliosis. The condition is usually, but not always, diagnosed in childhood. It’s not the result of an injury or bad posture, but the condition can lead to an unbalanced posture and back pain. And it’s common for discomfort to get worse unless the condition is treated.
According to the National Scoliosis Foundation, “Chiropractic care has been instrumental in the treatment of scoliosis for several years, and chiropractic care will continue to be recognized as a valid treatment for scoliosis.”
If you think your child may have scoliosis but has never been screened for it, ask your HealthSource chiropractor about community screening services. And if you or your child has already been diagnosed with scoliosis, your HealthSource chiropractor can help you lead a more active lifestyle through chiropractic care, progressive rehab, and wellness.
