Can scoliosis be treated by a chiropractor?

Like all other treatments for scoliosis, aside from the corrective brace prescribed to adolescents with scoliosis, chiropractic does not correct, cure or reverse scoliosis. Chiropractic adjustments and therapies help to improve form (therefore, improving function), and induce mobility into the joints.

Furthermore, what is a mild case of scoliosis?

Mild scoliosis is a term used to categorize cases of scoliosis that the orthopedic and medical community do not believe require treatment. It is also possible for mild scoliosis to cause pain and other health problems. Traditionally mild scoliosis is “treated” with observation.

Is minor scoliosis common?

Mild, Moderate, Severe. Scoliosis is a condition in which an individual's spine has lateral, or side to side curvature. Some patterns are more common than others, but hardly ever are two scoliosis patients' spines identical. most often, around 80-85% of scoliosis cases are idiopathic (meaning the cause is unknown).

Can you be cured of scoliosis?

Depending on the severity of the curve and the risk for it getting worse, scoliosis can be treated with observation, bracing, or surgery. Orthopedic surgeons or neurosurgeons are often consulted if surgery is needed. There is no cure for scoliosis, but the symptoms can be reduced.
