Scoliosis Treatment From Our Indianapolis Chiropractor at Hull Chiropractic

You might think you only need to search listings for "chiropractor Indianapolis" when you suffer injuries after a car accident. However, a chiropractor has the power to identify chronic issues like scoliosis. Once our chiropractor at Hull Chiropractic, serving Indianapolis, IL, and the surrounding area, diagnoses the issue, you receive treatments that manage your condition effectively.

Scoliosis Defined

Scoliosis is a problem with the curvature of your spine. Generally, you already know you have scoliosis that's causing a problem before you reach adulthood. Usually, our chiropractor focuses on identifying the problem in children since it commonly arises when a kid goes through a growth spurt shortly before puberty. A majority of the time, scoliosis is mild and doesn't affect a person much, but when it's severe or worsens, it may cause pain and even interfere with the normal function of organs in your chest. 

Symptoms of Scoliosis

When scoliosis is only mild, it may not cause any issues. However, it's possible for scoliosis to cause uneven shoulders or one shoulder appearing more prominent than the other. An uneven waist or having one hip higher than the other can occur. If the issue worsens, the spine could rotate or twist, which causes one side of your ribs to protrude farther than the other. In the more severe cases, scoliosis limits the amount of space in your chest cavity, which makes breathing difficult. 

Causes of Scoliosis 

Certain health conditions cause the onset of scoliosis, such as neurological condition like cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy. A birth defect, injury, or infection may cause scoliosis as well. In some cases, it's not known what causes scoliosis. 

Some people are more at risk for scoliosis than others like children before they reach puberty. Gender appears to play a role also. Girls are more likely to have the curvature worsen to the point where they need to have treatment. Those with a family history of it develop it more often than those who don't have anybody in their family with it. 

Chiropractic Care for Scoliosis 

Chiropractic care for scoliosis begins with a diagnosis using a visual analysis and possibly imaging. After the diagnosis, our chiropractor uses techniques to manage pain and other issues. Additionally, part of your treatment consists of tracking the progression of the disease. During treatment, you're guided through exercises and will possibly receive chiropractic alignments to help. In the more serious cases, you may need to be sized for a brace.
