Scoliosis Types & Treatments

Scoliosis Types & Treatments

Scoliosis is when there is any curve more than 10 degrees in the spine. In most cases, our chiropractors will use the letter “S” or “C” to describe the shape of the spine. Common obvious symptoms are back pain, leaning to one side or the other, or uneven hips.

Usually scoliosis has no specific cause, which is known as idiopathic scoliosis. When scoliosis does have a cause, it is either nonstructural or structural. Some causes are Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, birth defects, and certain genetic conditions. Scoliosis will not go away on it’s own, and is not caused by poor posture, heavy lifting, or any other mis-use of the back.
