Scoliosis

Life Chiropractic CentreThis is when the normal straight spine progressively begins to curve or bend in a sideway manor and even twist leaving the person with a disfigured appearance. There has yet to be any conclusive reason for this deforming disease, but it appears to be more prevalent in patients with family history. It most commonly affects teenage girls as compared to boys and is classified as either structural or non structural (fuctional). Poor posture can play a significant role in its development. Chiropractic can help to slow or stop its progress and prevent painful symptoms and degeneration.

Patients with advanced osteoporosis, a chiropractor will determine whether the painful joint or spine is caused by fractures or a misalignment. An Xray is usually required. Chiropractic manipulation is very safe under a trained doctor. Nutrition, exercise and rehabilitation are crucial to prevent secondary problems.

Bad Posture/Uneven Posture and Gait

Posture and gait are determined by our skeletal structure. Bad Posture like slouching, uneven shoulders, pelvic or leg length is commonly due to spinal or joint misalignment. When the spine is unevenly stressed keeping a straight posture is a tiring process.

Shoes are often unevenly worn out. If left unattended this may lead to more serious problem like scoliosis. We should often analyse our body in front of the mirror for uneven shoulders, pelvic and leg length. It is wise to visit the chiropractor for a thorough check-up especially for young children and toddlers.
