Youth and Scoliosis
It is extremely important to check the children’s spine for the early detection of a possible scoliosis. Scoliosis is a lateral curvature of the spine that can occur in children from 8 years to adulthood. It usually develops during puberty or the period of rapid growth, and may be due to a genetic predisposition and usually occurs more in girls.
What signs reveal the existence of a scoliosis?
- One leg shorter than the other
- Walks funny
- Uneven hips
- Back Pain
- A shoulder higher than the other
- A palette and prominent chest when bending forward
- Visible curvature of the spine
- Uneven wearing out of the shoes
When left untreated, scoliosis can cause severe deformity, causing psychological distress and physical disability. The fact that the vertebrae are poorly positioned, affect the rib cage, thus compromising the heart and lungs.
Chiropractic treatment is a specific adjustment program that will help improve the function and structure of the spine, strengthening the soft surrounding tissue and improving posture. Thus, avoid aggressive treatments such as corset and surgery. Chiropractic treatment is therefore, the most natural solution for scoliosis.
Unfortunately, a large percentage of cases of scoliosis are detected when it is too late to correct it, but Chiropractic continues to offer significant prospects for improvement. That is why we insist on the importance of early detection and prevention.
