Scoliosis is a spinal deformity condition that’s on the rise, affecting as many as 5% of the population. Most cases of scoliosis develop in childhood and adolescence, and can lead to permanent deformity, pain, and disability into adulthood. The most common course of action when scoliosis is diagnosed or suspected is a “wait-and-see” approach, wherein the scoliosis is monitored, and when it progresses in severity the patient is referred for surgery.
For those scoliosis patients that are not satisfied to “wait-and-see” what happens, corrective chiropractic care offers a conservative and effective intervention to slow the progression, and even correct scoliosis without surgery.
The doctors at Foundation Spine and Posture are especially equipped to treat patients with scoliosis, as they are certified in Chiropractic BioPhysics® technique. Both Dr. Kate and Dr. Paul have successfully treated scoliotic patients with scientific and research-based Chiropractic BioPhysics® technique, using gentle mirror-image adjustments, exercises, therapeutic spinal traction and scoliosis bracing.
