Scoliosis Treatment in Knoxville
At Cornerstone Chiropractic, we provide treatment for scoliosis, which is a mild to moderate curvature of the spine. If you have been diagnosed with scoliosis, we may be able to reverse the curve in your spine with chiropractic. This can help you avoid a pricey and painful back surgery, with extended recovery.
What are Scoliosis Symptoms?
The main symptom of scoliosis is a curvature of the spine, which is visible to observers. As a result of this spinal twist, the waist can appear uneven. Scoliosis sufferers may look like they are leaning to one side due to the curvature of the spine. The spine's curve can also cause pain as well as muscle spasms in the back region.
Scoliosis may be caused by a birth defect, neuromuscular condition (such as spina bifida), spinal trauma, or osteoporosis. However, the majority of scoliosis cases have no underlying cause. These cases are referred to as "idiopathic scoliosis." Some medical professionals suspect there is an inherited component to scoliosis; however, this has not been proven.
Anyone who experiences these scoliosis symptoms, or has received a diagnosis, is encouraged to come see our chiropractor in Knoxville.
How our Chiropractor in Knoxville Treats Scoliosis
Chiropractic adjustments return the spine to its natural curvature, relieving pain and inflammation. Since our Knoxville chiropractor adjusts the position and curvature of the spine, it is no wonder that we are able to reduce the abnormal curvature of the spine associated with scoliosis. Chiropractic is most successful with mild cases of scoliosis.
We start scoliosis treatment by evaluating you and checking your health history. If we feel that your scoliosis cannot be treated using chiropractic, we will refer you out. If we believe we can help you, we will initiate a series of adjustments. In some cases, we may recommend a hybrid approach where you see us for adjustments and wear a back brace in between treatment.
As we shift the spine, we can relieve the tension on your muscles. This can help limit muscle spasms associated with scoliosis and may improve your day to day comfort. As we continue our series of adjustments, many scoliosis sufferers find that their mobility and range of motion increase naturally. Since our treatment methods use no medication, it is safe to combine chiropractic with a traditional approach to scoliosis treatments.
In addition to chiropractic, our Knoxville chiropractor offers therapeutic massage. Massage of the back and shoulders can relieve muscle tension and ease pain associated with scoliosis. We can also suggest lifestyle changes that can reduce pressure on the spine or healthy eating habits to give you energy all day long. Our holistic treatment method brings fast, natural pain relief.
