Treatment of Scoliosis


Scoliosis is a deviation of the spine. Few people have a perfectly straight spine, and this is nothing to worry about. On the other hand, if the deviation is too important, it is called scoliosis.

Minor scoliosis can be caused by major muscle spasms. However, the majority of scoliosis affects young girls at the age of puberty. In fact, it is during growth that the majority of scoliosis develops, for a reason that is still unknown.

That said, scoliosis is not a disease, it is rather a malformation of the spine.

Effects of scoliosis

For most people, the symptoms are mild and may go unnoticed. However, even mild scoliosis can lead to abnormalities in the function of spinal nerves, discs, vertebrae and ligaments that should be examined by the chiropractor.
Symptoms may include: abnormal posture, postural fatigue (feeling tired while standing or sitting, etc.), balance or muscle problems, breathing problems, digestive problems, heart problems and neck or back pain.

Treatment of Scoliosis

  • Variable according to the amplitude of the scoliosis and the time of its discovery.
  • Exercices
  • Orthopedic support
  • Muscle stimulation
  • Spinal manipulation and soft tissue work (Active Release Techniques and Graston)
  • Kinesio Taping
  • Surgery if too important.

What can chiropractic do?

Proper scoliosis treatment requires treating the cause and not just the symptoms. Your chiropractor is uniquely trained to diagnose scoliosis and can control, reduce or correct abnormalities:

  • He will review your entire health history
  • He will perform physical exams to find spinal problems.
  • Care may include adjustments to the spine as well as stretching and corrective exercises.
  • Early detection and regular examinations are the best way to achieve effective results.

Studies show that chiropractic is a safe and effective way to treat idiopathic scoliosis without the use of drugs or surgery.

If scoliosis is detected at puberty, early intervention can slow and limit its progression. This is why it is important to have your child examined at birth and during growth.

It should be noted that it is not necessary to be as straight as a post to have a healthy back, the important thing is the mobility of the back.


If you experience these symptoms see your chiropractor.
