Chiropractic Care and Curved Spine Treatment
The human spine (also known as backbone) is made up of small bones that are stacked one on top of another. It is normal for a healthy spine to have gentle curves, the purpose of which is to absorb stress from gravity and body movement. However, if there are any abnormalities of the spine, the normal and natural curves become exaggerated and misaligned, which is often associated with such spine disorders. We at Corrective Chiropractic in London, ON, know all about chiropractic care and the care of curved spines and scoliosis.
What Are the Causes of Curvature Disorders?
There are various health issues that can lead to spine disorders. Some of the most common of them may include:
- Abnormal spine development in the uterus
- Poor posture
- Tumors in the spine
- Spine infections
- Discitis that is characterized by inflammation of spine discs
- Trauma, accidents, and injuries
What Are the Symptoms of Curvature Disorders?
Scoliosis, hypo - lordosis, and hyper - kyphosis are characterized by the following symptoms:
- One shoulder blade is higher than the other one
- Leaning toward one side
- Fatigue in the back and legs
- Movement issues
- Back discomfort and pain
- Curve or hump in the upper back
What Is the Role of a Chiropractor in Curved Spine Treatment?
A chiropractor from our practice can identify a curvature disorder and recommend care that can reduce pain and discomfort caused by this disorder. Many patients with scoliosis, hypo - lordosis, or hyper - kyphosis (dowager’s hump) who see chiropractors regularly find non-invasive chiropractic treatments helpful in reducing pressure on the nervous system and strengthening their bodies' cores. Specific spinal adjustments and stretching exercises are some of the most common chiropractic treatments for curvature disorders.
The primary focus of chiropractic care in treating spine disorders is strengthening the spine in order to reduce pressure on the nerves, get rid of stiffness in the muscles, and improve the flexibility of the muscles in the back.
