An estimated 2-3% of people suffer from scoliosis, many of whom are children between the ages of 10 and 15.
Scoliosis is a disorder of the spine that causes this part of the body to curve. These curves can resemble “C” or “S” shapes on X-rays. An estimated 2-3% of people suffer from scoliosis, many of whom are children between the ages of 10 and 15. Females are more likely to have scoliosis than males, and many of the cases of this disorder do not have a known cause, making them more difficult to treat. Some of the warning signs of this ailment include uneven shoulders or hips, as well as a hump in the lower back or rib when you bend over.
If you are impacted by the challenges that come with having scoliosis, our team at Mapleview Chiropractic Centre can help. We offer treatment options for this disorder, including using braces and physical adjustments to reduce the curvature of the spine. Although many of those suffering from scoliosis are children, the disorder also impacts adults. Our treatments are designed to help you manage pain and treat the underlying problem.
We don’t use invasive techniques or drugs to provide that relief. Instead, we offer traditional manual adjustments, myofascial release therapy, activator instrument adjustments, sports injury rehabilitation, interferential current therapy, massage therapy, therapeutic ultrasound therapy, and kinesiology taping. We can also fit you with custom orthotics to treat conditions that cause your body to misalign when you’re walking or standing on your feet.
