Many people have a subtle to severe curvature of the spine that could create a lot of back pain. Scoliosis has many potential causes, from workplace accidents to genetic conditions that make it occur naturally. Discover Integrated Health serving Marietta, GA, and Kennesaw, GA provides effective and non-invasive chiropractic treatment for back pain that is caused by scoliosis. Scoliosis can affect almost anyone, and there is no single way to correct it. Most people with scoliosis undergo corrective surgical procedures if possible. Many use orthopedic devices such as lifted shoes to help mitigate differences in leg length caused by a curved spine. Others simply put up with the pain and take over-the-count pain medication as needed. Scoliosis also responds well to chiropractic care.
How Chiropractic Care Relieves Back Pain
Scoliosis can produce extreme pain that makes it very difficult to move and get work done. Our skilled and experienced chiropractor provides a variety of non-invasive treatments to reduce back pain and prevent it from returning in the future. Many people who experience back pain from scoliosis do so because of the uneven pressures on the spinal cord. That can lead to pain starting from within the spine and radiating outward.
We can also reduce soreness and inflammation caused by scoliosis with massage therapy, trigger point therapy, electrostimulation, and other effective treatments. We do not rely on pain medication or invasive medical procedures. Instead, chiropractic care helps to encourage your body’s natural healing powers while easing inflammation and soreness caused by scoliosis.
Scoliosis Symptoms and Treatment
Many people with scoliosis learn about the condition while they are teens or young adults. Many undergo sports physicals and other common examinations that can lead to a diagnosis of scoliosis early in life. Many times, it occurs due to uneven leg growth that creates uneven hips and curvature of the lower spine.
Scoliosis can arise from a car accident or similar mishap that damages a leg, hip, or another body part that affects the spinal cord’s natural shape. No matter the cause, chiropractic adjustments will reduce your pain, restore your mobility, and enhance your body’s natural ability to heal itself.
