Scoliosis Treatment

Chiropractic care is a conservative, gentle, non-invasive treatment designed to address the abnormal lateral curvature of the spine brought on by scoliosis. At Fox Integrated Healthcare, we take an integrated health approach to scoliosis treatment by offering a variety of synergistic, in-office therapies that function to gradually direct the spine into a healthier state. It is our goal to help your body restore normal neuromusculoskeletal function, limit further spinal degeneration and improve your overall quality of life.

Conditions That Can Benefit from Scoliosis Treatment

Hallmark indications of scoliosis include poor posture, uneven shoulders, uneven hips, visible lateral curvature of the spine and gait abnormalities. When scoliosis causes a significant imbalance of the musculoskeletal system, a variety of limiting, uncomfortable symptoms can result. Chiropractic care can help improve many of those symptoms, including:

  • Low range of motion and limited mobility
  • Abnormal gait
  • Joint pain
  • Muscle spasms
  • Breathing problems
  • Digestive issues
  • Chronic and acute muscle pain
  • Fatigue

Health Benefits of Scoliosis Treatment

Scoliosis can trigger a wide range of systemic symptoms that, on the outside, appear to be wholly unrelated to the condition. If you struggle with irritating or debilitating issues as a result of the lateral curvature of your spine, chiropractic scoliosis treatment offers the following benefits:

Pain Relief
Lateral curvature of the spine places excessive pressure on spinal nerves, which can trigger significant discomfort, either local to the spine or radiating outward. Scoliosis can also result in significant muscular tension and imbalance, which often triggers painful muscle spasms and associated fatigue. As we gradually restore space between your vertebrae and reduce joint restrictions, we relieve nerve pressure and muscle tension, which promotes significant pain relief.

Mobility & Postural Improvement
A misaligned spine creates muscular imbalances and tension that often result in abnormal movement patterns, which exacerbate joint and muscle pain. Depending on the degree of compensation, overall mobility may be significantly restricted. Chiropractic adjustments work to bring the spine toward a more acceptable degree of lateral deviation, which helps improve overall posture, movement patterns and mobility.

Increased Spinal Nerve Signaling
Lateral spinal curvature can result in mild to severe spinal nerve compression, which impedes normal, healthy nerve communication. Often, spinal nerve compression elicits various symptoms that may appear unrelated to the presence of scoliosis, but which are, in fact, a result of nerve compression. By restoring space between your vertebrae and relieving pressure on your spinal nerves, we allow those nerves to resume normal signaling, which can alleviate a variety of irritating, seemingly unrelated bodily symptoms.

What to Expect With Scoliosis Treatment

If you suffer from scoliosis, the first step at Fox Integrated Healthcare is a no-obligation consultation, during which you’ll meet with one of our highly trained chiropractors: Dr. Derek Fox or Dr. Audrey Kenyon-Fox. Together, you’ll discuss your current health concerns and goals of chiropractic treatment, so that we may determine if you are a candidate for treatment.

If you are a candidate, we’ll perform a comprehensive evaluation using both manual diagnostic tests, as well as advanced digital imaging technology. We’ll also discuss your medical history, current limitations, lifestyle habits and other factors that allow us to reach an informed diagnosis and determine how we can serve you best. We’ll use the results of your evaluation to design a custom, individualized treatment protocol and discuss our findings with you in depth.

Depending on the severity of your condition, we may recommend a variety of synergistic treatment modalities that function to improve spinal health, restore muscular balance and help you experience relief. Recommended treatment duration varies on an individual basis, but for the vast majority of scoliosis sufferers, ongoing chiropractic care provides significant systemic improvements.

Scoliosis Treatment: Frequently Asked Questions

Unfortunately, there is currently no known cure for scoliosis. However, routine chiropractic care can help prevent ongoing spinal deterioration, relieve excess pressure on spinal discs, restore muscular balance around the spine and provide significant relief from uncomfortable symptoms.

If you believe you currently suffer from scoliosis but have not been diagnosed with the condition, you’ll need to have a comprehensive diagnostic exam to determine the degree of your spine’s lateral curvature. At Fox Integrated Healthcare, we perform extensive diagnostic testing using manual evaluation techniques and advanced digital imaging. Our chiropractic doctors are extensively trained in the diagnosis of scoliosis and recommend an appropriate treatment plan to improve your condition.
