When you have an improper curve in your spine it is called scoliosis. Your spine naturally has a front-to-back curve. However, if you view someone from behind, a side-to-side curve should not be visible. If you are suffering from scoliosis, you will be able to see a side-to-side or twisting curvature that does not belong. Often, scoliosis goes undiagnosed. This is unfortunate because finding scoliosis in its early stages can help to prevent it from getting more severe. There is a point where it is no longer able to be helped. It is vital to discover scoliosis before that occurs. Severe scoliosis can have a negative impact on:
Caring for scoliosis can be a challenge. Several options are available but with little success. Your medical doctor will probably recommend either a trunk brace to keep the condition from worsening or back surgery. People are looking for a more natural way to care for scoliosis. The good news is that it does exist. It can help those with newly discovered scoliosis to prevent it from becoming worse. For those who are dealing with scoliosis already in advanced stages, it can help alleviate some of the discomfort.
Drs. Biederman and Gutman have done extensive research into scoliosis and how upper cervical chiropractic care can help. They have been able to prove that an upper cervical misalignment in the C1 or C2 vertebra can indeed contribute to the development of scoliosis. Dr. Gutman’s research shows that not only scoliosis, but ear infections, colic, and a number of other childhood disorders can be connected to a misalignment in the neck. Dr. Biederman’s research pointed out how many babies actually endure neck misalignments due to birth trauma. This leads to the eventual development of health issues.
Visiting us here at Advanced Spinal Care can be just the right step for you. If you suspect you have endured a neck trauma at any time, we can examine you and confirm or deny this is the case. We can then work with you if you have a misalignment to correct it and keep you from developing scoliosis or other serious health issues because of it.
