What Is Scoliosis?
Have you or someone you love been diagnosed with Scoliosis? Are you wondering what this term means for you? Technically speaking, scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine, which can manifest in a few different ways. We'll explore these variances further, but let's address the biggest concerns, which are back pain, mobility, and the ability to lead a normal life. Unfortunately, there isn't a simple cure for this condition. Exercises, stretches, medical therapies like chiropractic care, and, in extreme cases, surgery are all potential patient assistance methods. Scoliosis pain management can be complicated, as different areas of the body can be affected by abnormal spinal curvatures.
Fortunately, Dr. Couillard and his team at Lake Marion Chiropractic Center have numerous years of training and experience, which in turn, makes him a premiere chiropractor in Lakeville & St. Paul, as well surrounding areas. Through chiropractic care, many of the issues surrounding scoliosis can be diagnosed, treated, and relieved, helping patients to enjoy healthy and happy lives. Let's examine some specifics of this spine disorder and what treatment options may be available for you.
Scoliosis Pain Management through Chiropractic Care
There are three main versions. Lordosis, or swayback, is an exaggerated inward curve of the lower back. Kyphosis, which can be identified as a rounding of the upper back, and scoliosis, mainly referring to a sideways curvature of the spine, out of its normal vertical alignment. All of these disorders not only cause back pain but can also add stress and pain to other related muscles and nerves, usually through the body's compensation for spinal misalignment. Although extreme cases may warrant surgery, chiropractic treatment and care is an excellent method for managing back pain and related issues, without invasive surgical options.
