Treatment Options and Chiropractic
Depending on the severity of the scoliosis curve, physical therapies such as chiropractic may help prevent further curvature or may help address some of the musculoskeletal issues. An early diagnosis may help with the effectiveness of treatment options. Surgery may be a last option for advanced scoliosis sufferers.
Chiropractic adjustments work to mobile both the pelvis and spine. In scoliosis cases chiropractic is used to improve lower limb and pelvic biomechanics, free restrictions in your system, prevent further fixation and prevent further damaging curvature.
