What New Techniques Are Scoliosis Specialists Using?

There are a number of forms of scoliosis which can be seen in children and adults which our chiropractic office in Hoover, Alabama can help in treating. The different types of scoliosis seen in adults and children can both be aided by the work of our chiropractor who has already had a large amount of success in relieving pain and reversing the curvature of the spine which defines your condition. New treatments are being discovered on a regular basis, including the growing level of chiropractic care involved in treating both adults and children affected by this commonly seen medical issue.

The first thing our chiropractor will want to do when you arrive at our office looking to receive treatment for your scoliosis is to make sure the diagnosis you have received is correct. You will first be assessed with the use of an x-ray still the best way of diagnosing your back issues and making sure the treatment we decide to use to treat your scoliosis. Once your diagnosis has been checked by our chiropractor, you will find your self undergoing a series of checks to determine how your scoliosis will be rated. The treatment you decide upon with our Hoover, Alabama chiropractor will often depend on the rating your scoliosis receives on the scale used to determine such matters.

Treating scoliosis is completed based upon the degree of curvature one sees in your spine. If your curvature of the spine is less than 20 degrees, it will be rated as mild, 25 to 40 degrees is seen as moderate, and above 50 degrees is rated as severe. The use of this rating system will assist our chiropractor in determining what level of a treatment plan is needed to complete your planned scoliosis treatments.

New techniques to treat scoliosis

The most often used treatment you will be given the option of using is that of a back brace, which can be customized to fit your body as the technology you are using continues to develop. The use of technology is one of the most important aspects of our treatment plans, but for scoliosis, the chances of success are often assisted by a treatment plan made up largely of spinal manipulation.

You may look back at the different treatments on offer and consider why you have not sought out chiropractic help in the past to deal with your scoliosis. However, the use of chiropractic treatments has not been a common way of dealing with scoliosis until the last couple of decades when advances began to be seen from the use of chiropractic treatments.

At our chiropractic offices in Hoover, Alabama we have worked to develop treatments for both types of scoliosis, idiopathic scoliosis, and secondary scoliosis. One of the problems we all face as chiropractors and medical professionals is the fact the causes of idiopathic scoliosis have never been fully uncovered. Chiropractors, like our own, are looking to make an impact on the research and treatment sectors through the work they are doing with patients and reporting to major medical institutions.

Chiropractors around the U.S. are now playing a more important role in the development of new treatments for scoliosis than ever before. Among the treatments being explored are a series of spinal manipulations designed to bring about a long-term change in the way the Cobb angle is seen which can see a significant decrease in its level when adjustments are undertaken over a long period of time. The use of spinal corrective measures is the best option for idiopathic scoliosis, which is known to be one of the leading ways of reversing the curvature you may see in your spine and the pain it is associated with.

Alongside the use of spinal corrective measures made using manipulation, our chiropractor may look to use the corrective nature of a back brace which is usually customized to fit you in the 21st-century. If you notice any of the common signs of scoliosis, such as uneven shoulders and misaligned hips you could be at risk from scoliosis which often develops at the tie just before the onset of puberty we often call the Tween years.
