Diagnosing and Fixing Your Scoliosis
As you go through life you will find yourself in many different positions. You might be leaning over to read your computer or slouched along the side of the sofa. You might even sleep in an unusual position. Well, different shifts in your body can, over time, shift your spine. There are several ways your spine may end up shifting out of position, and one of these is known as scoliosis. This condition can become painful, but our chiropractors at Lubbock Advanced Physical Medicine can help. Our staff will provide you with the pain relief treatments you need to correct your scoliosis.
What Is Scoliosis
Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine. The condition may develop due to a growth spurt during or just before puberty. Scoliosis is considered fairly common since 3% of adolescents in the United States have been diagnosed with this condition.
The majority of scoliosis cases are mild; however, some spinal deformities may continue to worsen as the child grows. Severe cases of scoliosis can be disabling. In some rare cases, the condition may make it difficult for the lungs to function properly.
When this happens to your back it causes your spine to get pulled out of place. It can lead to pain ranging from your neck down to your hips and feet. You will likely stand with a slight tilt and may put most of your weight onto one side. Without treatment, scoliosis will only become worse. That's why it is so important to come to see us.
