Scoliosis

Scoliosis

There are many forms of scoliosis, the most common type of scoliosis is adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) and this can progress rapidly in growing children. Scoliosis can also occur in adults later in life or a pre-existing scoliosis can degenerate and progress in adulthood. Adult degenerative scoliosis is typically associated with lower back pain.

In AIS rehabilitation in combination with bracing has been shown to be the most effective non-surgical treatment of AIS. The best chance to control the curve and possibly make some correction is with early intervention.
Scoliosis in adults can be difficult to treat but specific rehabilitation programs can improve body alignment and increase comfort.

Here at ROCK Chiropractic Health Centre we use ScoliRoll spinal orthotic as well as specific spinal adjustments for members with scoliosis.

By implementing the ScoliRoll as well as specific spinal adjustments the following can occur:

  • Maintaining and improving spinal flexibility
  • Passive ligament and muscle stretching
  • Active training of the back muscles while the spine is in the corrected position
  • During stretching some cases can achieve curve straightening and derotation of the spine

New Members Receive £50 off Initial Consultation, Examination & X-Rays (if needed)
