What Patients Want To Know About Scoliosis

(First panel)

Subhead: Can It Be Prevented?

Scoliosis is tragic. It causes both physical pain and emotional suffering. This sideways bending of the spine shows up as abnormal posture and then finally, deformity. If allowed to advance, it can interfere with the lungs, heart and many other vital organs.

There is hope.

Headline: Scoliosis Seems to Affect Mainly Girls Between the Ages of 8 and 18.

Scoliosis affects boys, but not as frequently as girls between the ages of 8 and 18. The cause varies. Some are born with this spinal deviation (congenital). Others get it from assuming a distorted head or hip position (habitual). Sadly, in many cases the cause is still unknown.

In the beginning, when easiest to correct, there are rarely symptoms. However, an alert parent may notice that a high shoulder or low hip makes clothing fit poorly. Back and leg pains may develop but overlooked as merely "growing pains." Neglect is the biggest danger.

If allowed to run its course, scoliosis can steadily worsen.

Early detection is critical. Severe cases can involve surgery. This procedure attaches steel rods to the spine to force it to straighten.

Chiropractic care has helped many you women avoid the unhappy effects of scoliosis. The procedure is simple.

First, a thorough examination helps detect scoliosis in its early stage. Then, corrective action can begin at once. The primary course of care is a program of specific chiropractic adjustments. These help improve the function and structure of the spine. Muscles strengthen. Posture can improve.

Chiropractic care has helped countless young women reclaim their health, posture and self-esteem.

Subhead: Isn't a certain amount of sideways curvature normal?

Any type of sideways curvature is abnormal. From the back, the spine should appear straight. When scoliosis is present, there are usually two curves. A primary curve in one direction and a compensatory curve in the opposite direction.

Subhead: Does a lack of calcium or carrying a heavy book bag cause scoliosis?

No. However, there are a growing number of people who believe uncorrected spinal damage from the birth process may be involved. Others suggest that using walkers to encourage early walking may be a culprit.

Subhead: What's the best time for a scoliosis examination?

As with other types of health problems, early detection can improve the likelihood of correction. Wise parents consult our office soon after the birth of their children. Then they follow up with periodic chiropractic checkups throughout their child's developing years.
