Can a Chiropractor Fix Scoliosis?Posted on by admin
This is a common question asked by people who want to seek help from a chiropractor. More often, this question is asked by folks who may have had a bad experience with a chiropractor in the past. Before we dive into the details, you must first understand what scoliosis really is and whether or not the condition can be “fixed.” Scoliosis can be described as an abnormal curvature of the spine. And while the condition is indeed treatable, it is not technically “curable”.
That being said, you can live a wonderful life (with a few limitations) once you have learned to manage your condition. However, this will involve staying dedicated to the plan dictated to you by your doctor or chiropractor (whichever you choose).
Managing Your Expectations
It is important to understand that quick fixes for scoliosis will rarely offer meaningful results. These treatment approaches typically have little impact on the patient’s life and at times can exasperate the situation. However, if you are prepared to manage your expectations and have your condition treated, you are sure to benefit from a chiropractor.
Chiropractor therapies and adjustments help improve form and induce mobility in the affected joints. Proper chiropractic sessions can increase comfort, improve posture and decrease pain. Chiropractors also address symptoms and discomfort that patients may be experiencing. In most cases this prevents further degradation of the spine. Visiting a chiropractor can help improve posture and help patients feel better about their appearance.
So, in conclusion, chiropractors might not be able to complete “fix” your condition, but the sessions will improve your overall life and appearance that may be just what you are looking for.
