Scoliosis is a condition characterized by “a sideways curve of the spine, or backbone.” For some reason, girls are more susceptible to contracting scoliosis than boys but the exact reasons for this remain unclear. It will also show how scoliosis can be identified and how chiropractic care in Jacksonville can work to reverse its effects and return your body to full health. Unfortunately, the most common treatment approach has been to wait and see how bad it gets, resorting to unsightly braces or eventually surgery. Scoliosis is typically diagnosed in a child’s teenage years through a school screening or chiropractic evaluation. Finding a chiropractor who understands the most current techniques and approaches to addressing health problems, especially scoliosis, can be a daunting task. Future studies by this author will include home journals for patients to record their compliance levels, which can then be statistically analyzed. Most scoliosis diagnoses are classified as idiopathic, which means that the cause is unknown. Other factors that contribute to the development of scoliosis are classified into two different categories labeled as structural or non-structural.
A professional chiropractor is trained to complete a thorough examination that will determine the presence of scoliosis. If detected early enough, chiropractic doctors have excellent success in reducing the effects of scoliosis. Idiopathic scoliosis is the most common form of scoliosis (80% of cases) and there is no known cause or contributing factor.
