How Do You Know You Need Scoliosis Treatment Melbourne
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may suffer from scoliosis.
- Reduced range of motion.
- Severe muscular tension in your back.
- An S or C-shaped curve in your spine.
- Acute back pain.
Scoliosis is the development of an S or C-shaped lateral curve in the spinal column. Three types of scoliosis affect patients at different stages of life, and they may require intervention from a spinal stenosis chiropractor.
- Developmental or adolescent scoliosis affects about 10% of people and occurs seven times more frequently in girls than in boys.
- Late-stage degenerative scoliosis develops with ageing, resulting in a narrowing or stenosis of the spinal canal.
- Idiopathic scoliosis comes on for reasons that are not fully understood.
How Do We Treat Scoliosis?
When you come from scoliosis treatment by Cox® certified chiropractors at Melbourne Spine Clinic and Malvern Chiropractic Clinic, we will use the Cox® Flexion-Distraction approach. This is a gentle, low-force, non-surgical therapy.
Combined with joint mobilisation and soft tissue therapy, the Cox® technique shows significant success for spinal stenosis treatment.
The goal with scoliosis is not necessarily straightening the curve but rather keeping mobility and flexibility in the curve and promoting a good quality of life for the patient.
