Scoliosis

An Overview of Scoliosis from Atlantic Chiropractic and Rehabilitation

Scoliosis is one of the most common back issues that people face. While scoliosis can impact people of all ages, this often impacts children who might be born with back issues or develop them over time. There are many treatment options for the symptoms of scoliosis, and the team from Atlantic Chiropractic and Rehabilitation is here to ensure that everyone has access to a trained chiropractor in Chesapeake who can treat scoliosis.

What is Scoliosis?

Scoliosis is a disease that impacts the curvature of the spine. The spine is supposed to be relatively straight from the bottom of the skull down to the pelvis. Sometimes, the spine can curve from side to side. If the curvature is too great, this causes someone to develop scoliosis. When the spine curves from side to side, several complications can develop. Some of these include chronic back pain and discomfort that can impact someone's overall quality of life. A family history of Scoliosis can increase the odds of developing Scoliosis. Also, females are slightly more likely to develop the disorder over males. There is no cure for scoliosis, but the symptoms can be reduced.

Scoliosis Pain Management

One of the most important topics related to scoliosis has to do with pain management. The abnormal curvature of the spine can lead to back pain that might spread to other areas of the body. Doctors may recommend several different pain medications to help cope with the pain but of course, these can be dangerous and may lead to side effects. A trained chiropractor knows how to help manage Scoliosis symptoms and can perform adjustment and manipulation procedures as part of routine chiropractic care. A chiropractor may be able to use exercises and procedures that can gradually move the spine back into proper alignment without requiring a visit to the operating room. This can help people improve their scoliosis with fewer side effects and complications.

  • ""I first came to Atlantic Chiropractic 5 years ago with a pinched nerve in my neck. I was in so much pain, I could not even move my head. Dr. Eric diagnosed the problem almost immediately and confirmed it with the EMG. He set up a treatment plan and told me I probably would not feel significant relief for a good two weeks. I appreciated his thoroughness, expertise, and honesty. As it turned out, I was actually pain free in one week! I always refer my friends to Dr. Eric/Atlantic Chiropractic and Rehabilitation for the most trusted effective chiropractic care.""
