Scoliosis  typically  shows early signs between the ages of 12 and 14 years old. If left untreated, scoliosis often worsens through the teen years into the early twenties. It may lead to  neck pain, back pain  and limited range of motion in the young patient as well as a self conscious feeling towards how their clothes fit or their general appearance.
The treatment for scoliosis in our office begins with a thorough physical exam and may include  x rays. A complete review of findings  will be scheduled.  Should you decide to follow our recommendations, The treatment will consist of muscle balance evaluations and treatment, exercises, stretches and chiropractic adjustments as part of a complete package designed to help  get the most benefit from  care.

The treatment schedule for juvenile scoliosis varies,  but is usually no less than  2 times per week for several months. The exact schedule will be determined after the evaluations are complete and a full report of recommendations and costs will be provided.

If detected and treated early, scoliosis may be fully or largely correctable (depending on the cause). If left untreated, it can worsen through the teen years into the early twenties and create problems for a lifetime. Even if scoliosis may be  rated by visual observation as “mild,”  a more complete evaluation is highly recommended.  A wait and see approach or simply “hoping for the best” is not recommended with  juvenile scoliosis.

Chiropractic is proven to help scoliosis in the cases that can be corrected.  The first step is to call our office and schedule a thorough chiropractic evaluation and standing postural x rays to determine the cause of the scoliosis, and the extent to which it has progressed to date.
