Scoliosis

Scoliosis is the medical term for an abnormal curve in the spine. It has many implications for people suffering with it, most notably, frequent and severe pain. Scoliosis is a condition that must be managed well to prevent further bouts of pain and/or increases in abnormal spinal curve.

Often the changes are not reversible with conventional therapy.

The right combination of chiropractic techniques and the appropriate retraining exercises can have profound benefits. Dr Mike has extensive experience in the treating of patients with scoliosis. He has completed the Scientific Exercise Approach to Scoliosis Accreditation Program (SEAS).

Causes of scoliosis:

The cause of scoliosis is not well documented. However, here are some possible links:

  • Neuromuscular conditions (cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy)
  • Birth defects
  • Injuries to, or infections of the spine (especially as a child)
  • Age
  • Underlying disease or pathology (rare)

Scoliosis is most common in young girls. When assessing scoliosis, it is important to identify the degree of the curve. This allows the chiropractor to monitor changes, thus being able to act early if bracing or surgery become a necessity.

Scientific Exercise Approach to Scoliosis

The SEAS approach utilises corrective neuromuscular exercises to prevent the potential need for bracing and fusion for scoliosis patients. Creating spinal stability to prevent the condition hampering daily activities. That coupled with specific chiropractic adjustments to the spine help the patient to live well, and prevent other more invasive therapies.
