Scoliosis is a common condition that doesn't necessarily cause pain or limit movement, but it can. For those who feel their scoliosis daily, any treatment that brings relief is one worth trying, and chiropractic treatment at Nystrom Chiropractic Group in San Rafael is worth your time.
In scoliosis, your spine is curved to one side (as opposed to curved forward or backward). The curve can be C- or S-shaped and occur at different points along the spine but commonly in the upper or middle portions. This curve can be very mild all the way up to very severe. Symptoms include one shoulder being lower than the other, and the telltale curve becomes visible when the person with scoliosis bends over. It's very common for teachers to catch the condition in young children during a physical activity in class.
Most of the time, the cause of scoliosis is not known. A few conditions can cause rare cases, like cerebral palsy. But most people with scoliosis have no other health issues. Common treatments include specific exercises, back braces, and surgery for very severe cases.
Not everyone needs treatment; very mild cases may not be visually apparent to most people and there may be no pain whatsoever. But the condition can get worse with age (it doesn't always), and it can cause pain -- in fact, people with scoliosis are more likely to have back pain than people without the condition -- and limited movement because that curve in the spine can gradually twist your torso if it progresses.
