If you are planning to have your health check by Chiropractic professionals, Sciatica (坐骨神經痛) has the right people to offer. Scoliosis is a condition that leads to an abnormal curving of the spine. This is an intricate type of illness because health experts cannot tell the exact causes of about 80 percent cases that are associated with it.

It is a normal thing for a person’s spine to naturally curve, but not too much which is totally different with people living with this illness. Individuals who suffer from this disease have their spines curving too much to an extent of the shape of later S or C.

This disease can affect almost any part of the spine with the most common areas being the lower area of the back, known as lumbar scoliosis and the area of the chest known as thoracic scoliosis.

It has been hard identifying the reasons behind the change of shapes of these spines but factors like muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy and spina bifida are closely associated with the growth of this disease.

Since experts cannot tell the primary cause of this disease, no proper cure has been found. But despite all that, there is still hope to those who are battling it. Scoliosis has several types, but the most common ones are neuromuscular scoliosis, congenital scoliosis, and idiopathic scoliosis. Understanding the signs of this disease is very important since through that will a person identify the sign he is exhibiting and therefore get the right treatment.

Chiropractic Treatment Of Scoliosis

There are however ways that have been proven to treat this disease and subsequently lower the symptoms. Doctors use x-rays so that they can be able to measure the 3D curve of each’s spine so that a suitable method of treatment can be determined.

Chiropractic treatment has been proved as one way, which can help treat this disease. It mainly involves constant adjustments, which can be done with special devices or with hand. These adjustments are made so that bones, muscles, and joints can be realigned.  This type of treatment comes in two types, which an individual can choose from; the scoliosis-specific chiropractic and the traditional chiropractic.

The traditional chiropractic focuses on the general focus and is exquisite for relieving pain but does not straighten the Cobb angle in patients. It is where the rib cage and spine are pressed down while the patient lies down to straighten the curve and analyze the spin.

The scoliosis-specific treatment on the other side are gentle and is suitable for anybody especially those who had undergone surgery and did not want a repeat.

To treat scoliosis correctly, you will have to choose from the two chiropractic methods, according to your symptoms.
