Scoliosis is a sideways curve of the spine that causes stiffness and pain. It is more common in females and begins in childhood. If detected early, scoliosis treatment will prevent it from worsening over time. Children should be examined before age 12 or 13, especially if there is a history of scoliosis in your family. The chiropractic approach is to use specific spinal adjustments along with a program of corrective exercises. With early detection and early treatment, chiropractic doctors have seen excellent results with scoliosis cases.

In some cases, degeneration diseases of the spine can cause scoliosis. Chiropractic can help improve this condition by restoring motion in the affected joints and providing pain relief.
