Chiropractic adjustments and therapies help to improve form (therefore, improving function), and induce mobility into the joints in patients with adult scoliosis. These improvements can decrease pain, increase comfort and improve posture. Chiropractors can also address other symptoms or issues the patient may be experiencing, and help prevent further degradation of the spine.
Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine. The human spine is innately designed with three curves, creating an "S" shape from the side. An individual with scoliosis will have a lateral (side-to-side) curve, greater than 10 degrees, which often results in an "S" or "C" shape from the front or rear view of the body.
