Natural Scoliosis Treatment With Chiropractic Care
Do you suffer from scoliosis? While many cases are mild and go undiagnosed, severe scoliosis can cause pain and mobility issues in both children and adults. Roughly 2% of the population has some degree of scoliosis. The good news, however, is that the condition is treatable by chiropractors such as Longview Chiropractic Center in Longview, Texas. Our expert team has nearly 30 years of experience treating patients with mild and severe scoliosis.
What Is Scoliosis?
During a child’s development, sometimes the spine will curve sideways. This is scoliosis. When looking at the spine under an x-ray, a patient with scoliosis will have a curve towards one side of the back, whereas most people have a straight spine.
It is a fairly common condition that presents itself in either adolescents going through puberty, or early childhood. Most cases are mild and do not need much treatment, if any. However, it is possible for severe cases of scoliosis to cause debilitating back issues, including pain and uneven walking. In these cases, it is important to see an expert chiropractor for treatment. If caught early, adjustments and chiropractic care can help reverse the condition so that your child does not develop back issues as a result of scoliosis.
How Can Chiropractors Treat Scoliosis?
At Longview Chiropractic Center, there are several treatment options available for patients with scoliosis:

Your first visit to our office will start with a thorough evaluation of your condition.
