What is Scoliosis?

Scoliosis is a condition that causes curvature in the spine. It can occur in different areas of the spine and the curve can be from side to side or from front to back. In some cases, the spine may also be rotated on its axis. Scoliosis can occur in differing degrees and should be monitored closely to avoid progression and more serious medical issues.

What causes Scoliosis?

Most cases of scoliosis have no known specific cause (idiopathic scoliosis), although heredity and medical, environmental or lifestyle issues affecting growth and development of the spine are believed to play roles. Other patients may develop scoliosis as a result of trauma, surgery, degenerative diseases, birth defects or neuromuscular diseases.

Common Symptoms of Scoliosis:

  • Muscle spasms
  • Neck/Back Pain or Stiffness
  • Limited Range of Motion
  • Weak Back
  • Bad Back
  • Back gives out
  • Lung & Heart Complications
  • Neck/Back pain (often described as painful aches)
  • Weakness (arms, legs)
  • Intermittent pain during certain activities
  • Pain that ranges from minimal to disabling
  • Pain centered in the lower back, but then radiates to legs and hips
  • Pain that seems worse when sitting, standing for long periods of time, bending forward, or lifting objects

I look forward and enjoy every visit in my road to back recovery. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. I will no longer be looking for another chiropractor office to meet my back needs. I also like the fact they provide other health needs.
