Scoliosis: Definition and Chiropractic Treatments
Updated: Dec 1, 2020
Scoliosis is a spinal condition that results in an abnormal curve to the spine. When left untreated, a patient’s quality of life and happiness drops. That’s why Drs. Mark Freund and Nicole Gopaul offer chiropractic services for scoliosis patients. You can trust the staff at Natural Care Chiropractic to give you the help you need. To learn more, contact our office in Lindenhurst, IL.
When it comes to most chiropractic care, understanding the root of the cause leads to proper treatment. That isn’t the case with scoliosis. There is no known cause for the development of scoliosis. It starts to begin almost randomly when a child begins puberty. Some factors increase your risk, like muscular dystrophy or cerebral palsy, to be aware of. What your Lindenhurst chiropractors do know is that this is a lifelong condition. The biggest impact is your physical condition, with many activities being limited due to pain or discomfort.
Chiropractic treatment is a recommended supplement for patients with scoliosis. Other doctors prefer to prescribe unnecessary medication. These often lose effectiveness, create undesirable side effects, or don’t work. This isn’t the case with your local chiropractors. We provide you with chiropractic adjustments that reduce your inflammation.
Here are just a few of the benefits of chiropractic adjustments:
-Improved range-of-motion and flexibility
-A decrease in pain and discomfort
-An increase in all physical activity
