Causes of Scoliosis
There are several causes of scoliosis, the two most common are congenital and habitual. Congenital scoliosis occurs when someone is born with a lateral curvature of the spine.
Habitual causes are environmental or situational depending on the habits of the individual. Carrying backpacks improperly can contribute to a spinal distortion. Poor sitting habits and practicing poor posture can also affect spinal development in children.
Chiropractors treat scoliosis by working to correct the unnatural curve in the spine and relieving symptoms and complications associated with scoliosis. Early detection makes treatment easier.
