What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is defined as an abnormal curvature of the spine. In the vast majority of cases, the curvature is sideways, but there may be more than one curvature issue in scoliosis victims. It’s estimated that almost three percent of the population suffers from scoliosis. Diagnosis is conducted by visual and x-ray methods.
Scoliosis can form as the result of a birth deformity or as an effect of an underlying condition such as cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy. It’s commonly believed that scoliosis is a hereditary condition, although there are cases where no hereditary link is found. Whatever the cause of scoliosis, Dr. Rudiak can help alleviate the resulting discomfort and pain associated with scoliosis.
The Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment for Scoliosis
There are a tremendous number of benefits of chiropractic treatments for scoliosis. For starters, scoliosis patients may have undergone corrective surgery for the condition. However, with chiropractic treatment, no surgery is required.
Dr. Rudiak performs a completely non-invasive procedure, so the patient does not have to worry about surgery. Secondly, chiropractic treatment is often effective immediately. That means that, for a scoliosis patient in intense pain, immediate relief may be available after just one visit. Follow up visits will likely be necessary for adjustments.
