Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine. Typically the abnormal curve affects teenage girls, and can be mild curve to a severe, life compromising curve. The good news, Chiropractic can help.
A recent study showed that adults who suffer from scoliosis can still benefit from Chiropractic care long after being adjusted.
28 patients, with a Cobb angle (severe scoliosis) of 44° ± 6° began Chiropractic care. After 6 months of Chiropractic care, improvements were seen in a reduction of the Cobb angle, pain scores, spirometry, and disability rating. Then 2 years after Chiropractic care, the reduction of scoliosis was still seen on x-rays.
Even 2 years after Chiropractic care, those in the study continued to report an improvement in reduction of pain, and activities of daily living.
