Scoliosis

Definition

A lateral (to the side) curvature of the spine. Scoliosis affects boys and girls between the
ages of 8 and 18. It is more common with girls.

Scoliosis can be diagnosed and treated by your chiropractor.

Signs and Symptoms of Scoliosis

  • Backache
  • Fatigue
  • Head being off center
  • Head tilt
  • Hips appearing uneven
  • Leg pain
  • Low back pain
  • Shoulders uneven (a high shoulder)
  • Spine curving abnormally to the side (laterally)
  • Stooped posture

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.

Treatment

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.
