Scoliosis is a condition that results in a lateral curve of the spine. It is when the vertebrae on one side of the spine deviate from their normal alignment to form an "S" or "C" shape. Sometimes it can be caused by genetics or hormonal issues during puberty, as the most common age of onset for scoliosis is between 10 and 15 years old, but it can occur at any age.
Upper Cervical Chiropractic can help with scoliosis because it focuses on neck vertebrae, which directly impact the rest of your spine. While many people know that chiropractic care helps address and manage scoliosis, few understand why.
It is believed that the adjustment of the upper cervical vertebrae causes changes in the workings of the cerebellum, affecting how your body processes and reacts to sensory information. This can result in greater balance, improved coordination, and an overall reduction in muscle tone. In addition to those benefits, it’s also reported that Upper Cervical chiropractic care has helped many patients with scoliosis who suffer from headaches or migraines. So, if you have been suffering from long-term discomfort and pain, help yourself and get in touch with a credible chiropractor for scoliosis.
