Get Expert Scoliosis Treatment in Knoxville
One of the many things a chiropractor can treat is scoliosis. Our practice is highly skilled in this area of treatment, and can successfully treat most cases of mild to a moderate curvature of the spine. With a combination treatment of spinal adjustments and scoliosis brace therapy, we are often able to reverse the spinal curve of scoliosis and allow you or your child to avoid painful and expensive back surgery to correct it in the future.
We have special diagnostic equipment for scoliosis patients to let us determine the exact type of treatment needed, and can refer you out to a surgeon if the scoliosis is too severe. In most cases, however, we can provide treatment, and we even offer custom braces to give even more efficacy to our methods of healing. We are the only chiropractor that does scoliosis treatment in Knoxville who provides custom bracing, which makes us the ideal choice as your treatment provider.
Treating Scoliosis with Your Chiropractor in Knoxville
At your chiropractor in Knoxville, we begin scoliosis treatment by doing a thorough evaluation of you (or your child) and your health history. Chiropractic treatment is most effective in beginning or mild cases of scoliosis, but can sometimes also be beneficial for moderate cases of it. If we believe you or your child are a good candidate for chiropractic treatment for scoliosis, we will begin with mild spinal adjustments to gently move your vertebrae back into their proper places.
Sometimes, the adjustments alone work to heal and correct scoliosis. Other times, we may recommend a combination treatment approach of adjustments and back bracing. The best time to begin back bracing is just before the big growth spurt in early adolescence. Spinal curves usually get worse right around this time. When a brace is worn before and during this growth spurt, it can keep scoliosis from becoming a severe spinal deformity. The closer an adolescent is to full spinal maturity, the less effective bracing may be, so it is important to start it early, if possible.
The brace keeps the spine in place and prevents it from shifting any further. Combined with regular chiropractic adjustments that gradually move your vertebrae into their correct positions, your spine can, indeed, straighten into its proper shape and stay that way for life. As your spine is gently eased into its natural shape, any tension on the muscles around it is relieved, and you become less in pain and much more comfortable. Your range of motion increases, as well. Soon, you may very well be scoliosis-free, and all without drugs or surgery.
