Worried about Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a spinal abnormality that is characterized by a twisting of the spine and is measured as a degree of curvature seen on the X-Ray from the front. We see this a lot in Singapore, and it needs a proactive approach. A “wait-and-see” method does not work as the situation will very often become more serious.
It occurs most frequently in girls and usually appears during childhood. Uneven shoulder heights, a loss of structural balance, or a change in posture are apparent signs of scoliosis. Often one shoulder blade will be more prominent than the other.
Scoliosis must be spotted early and prevented from worsening. If not it can cause visible physical change. Also, it may cause postural abnormalities and can be a source of pain in children. If allowed to progress unchecked by a chiropractor, the postural distortion can cause substantial health problems due to the pressure exerted on vital organs.
A chiropractor must evaluate an individual if the following is true. Common factors are a family history of spinal abnormalities if the child is complaining of any pain, respiratory symptoms, abdominal difficulties, or other abdominal and thoracic complaints.
The nerves of the mid-back and low back (scoliosis exists here) send strength, energy, and regulatory information to many of the vital organs. The stress on the nervous system due to rotational and postural abnormalities associated with this ailment can also cause severe organ malfunction.
Surgical options for scoliosis are painful, leave significant scarring, and unfortunately have a high risk for infection, nerve damage, and failure above and below the surgery. A more conservative approach should be your approach before considering surgery.
At Total Health Chiropractic Singapore, we provide a significantly different approach in the conservative treatment of scoliosis. If you or a loved one has scoliosis, we may have a solution that does not involve surgery.
