Suffering from scoliosis?

Scoliosis and how Green Chiropractic can help you.

Did you know that three out of every one hundred people have and suffer from scoliosis? Not everyone is diagnosed with scoliosis early in life. Many adults experience the side effects of scoliosis without knowing they have a curvature of the spine. Females are eight times more likely to progress to a curve magnitude that requires treatment. If you or someone you love has been experiencing forward head posture, slumped shoulders, or even a swayed or flat back, there’s a chance that you may have scoliosis. When the spine is in its ideal position, the body is aligned from head to toe. Aligned posture means that the head rests squarely above the shoulders, the shoulders rest above the hips, the hips rest above the knees, and the knees are above the ankles. If your posture is not aligned, you’ll find that your head sits forward, beyond your shoulders, your shoulders are slumped and middle back is hunches, and your hips are not aligned with your knees and feet. Scoliosis can cause pain, tension, and tightness in the neck and back, leading to discomfort in everyday activities such as sitting, sleeping, doing dishes, walking the dog, or playing with your children. Do you think you’re suffering from scoliosis? Chiropractic BioPhysics® can help, Green Chiropractic are certified Chiropractic BioPhysics doctors.

What exactly is scoliosis?

Scoliosis is a sideways spinal curvature/deformity that most often is diagnosed in adolescents. This S-shaped curve is not natural for the spine and places unnatural strain across the entire body, which can lead to pain, discomfort, and a variety of other conditions. Scoliosis usually begins in childhood, and the reason for it can vary for every person. For some, the birth experience or congenital factors can influence the onset of scoliosis. For others, scoliosis can originate from a childhood injury or accident, or any event that causes a physical impact on the spine and joints. Most cases of scoliosis are mild, but often the curves worsen as children grow. Severe scoliosis can be disabling.

If scoliosis is not treated, the curvature in the spine can become worse with every year of life.

Scoliosis and the Neck

While most people understand that scoliosis is a condition of the spine, they often fail to realize that the spine includes the neck—the cervical spine. If you’re wondering “does scoliosis affect my neck?” the answer is “yes!” The entire spine should be aligned in order to support good posture. If it’s not, like in the case of scoliosis, every area of the spine will be strained.

When the spine is experiencing scoliosis, this can result in pain, tension, and discomfort in the neck and shoulders. It can also cause forward head posture (frequently called “tech” or “text” neck). Scoliosis disrupts the structure of the spine, so holding up the head and body’s weight because more difficult.

Scoliosis can also strain and cause tension in the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the shoulders. The shoulders are meant to attach to an aligned spine, and their positioning and evenness rely on the upright position of the bones and joints. If your bones and joints are curved into an S-shaped curve, as in the case of scoliosis, it’s likely that the shoulders will be slumped, asymmetrical, or otherwise challenged.

While many people believe that it is possible to simply “stand up straight,” this is not the case. If you’re suffering from scoliosis, you are not going to be able to resolve it by changing your posture superficially. If it were that easy, you would already have done that. In one 20-year study, about 40 percent of adult scoliosis patients experienced a progression. Degenerative scoliosis occurs most frequently in the lumbar spine (lower back) and more commonly affects people age 65 and older. 


How Chiropractic BioPhysics® Can Help

Chiropractic BioPhysics® isn’t like any other kind of chiropractic care. Chiropractic BioPhysics® focuses specifically on a kind of treatment that is intended to deliver long-term results and produce life-changing transformation. Chiropractic BioPhysics® (also referred to as CBP) is based on scientific research focusing on the shape and function of the spine. Using advanced digital imaging technology and the expert assessment of a certified chiropractor, CBP stands out among other techniques as a lifetime solution for a variety of conditions caused by spinal deformities.

CBP utilizes mirror image® adjustments and customized spinal traction setups to move the joints and bones of the body back into proper alignment (shaping the spine). When the bones and joints are moved into their correct positions, they support the body more effectively, facilitating improved posture, the decrease or elimination of many conditions, and improved nerve energy transmission.

Obstructed nerve energy flow can contribute to many negative conditions and sensations in the body. When the spinal structure is out of proper alignment, the nearby nerves can become inflamed and prevented from functioning normally. This can lead to a wide variety of symptoms, many of which are considered normal or uncurable. If you’re experiencing pain, discomfort, or negative physical conditions—or if you simply want to experience the highest level of health available for your body—Call Green Chiropractic at 402-933-5392.
