Scoliosis and other Spinal Conditions

Spinal health is essential. More than 3 million people are diagnosed with scoliosis annually. Depending on the severity, spinal conditions could require a heavy surgical procedure. Yet, a chiropractor can gently guide the spine into alignment without unnecessary medications or surgery.

Our team at Mendota Heights will provide the best care for your condition. Our chiropractor will listen and give you treatment directed to your spinal problems. Read below to find out more about scoliosis and other spinal conditions.

What Is Scoliosis?

Scoliosis is a deformity of the spine that causes an abnormal spinal curvature. This condition affects more women than men, but the causes of children's scoliosis remain unknown. There are three main types of it:

  • Functional: This type is related to other problems in the body rather than the spine. The possible causes are the different leg lengths, unequal weight-bearing, or muscle spasms in the back.
  • Neuromuscular: This type is common among people with other conditions, including muscular dystrophy, congenital disabilities, Marfan syndrome, and cerebral palsy.
  • Degenerative: This type of scoliosis usually occurs in older adults. Usually, the leading cause of this type is arthritis. In addition, however, disc degeneration, osteoporosis, and other conditions can cause it.

Awareness of the risk factors for this spinal deformity is also essential. For example, you must be careful if your child is between 9 and 15 years old, their sex is female, or has any family history of scoliosis.

What Are Other Common Spinal Conditions?

Scoliosis can be debilitating for some, but other spinal issues require assistance. Our chiropractor can help you with scoliosis, but he can also ease any lasting pain from other problems. We will have a chiropractic adjustment waiting for them:

  • Arthritis: An inflammation of joints characterized by chronic joint pain and tenderness, swelling, and redness.
  • Herniated disc: It is a disc that shifts out of its place between the vertebrae.
  • Spinal stenosis: It is a condition characterized as the narrowing of the spine, caused by diseases and injuries, such as scoliosis and osteoarthritis.

How Can A Chiropractor Help?

Multiple studies have shown that chiropractic adjustments can help improve spinal curvature and reduce pain caused by spinal conditions. In addition, chiropractic care is beneficial when combined with other treatment options. Therefore, if you are experiencing any symptoms of scoliosis or other conditions, you should see a chiropractor as soon as possible.
