Scoliosis: Recognizing It and Understanding Chiropractic Care
What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a spinal condition characterized by abnormal twisting and curvature of the spine.
This condition is prevalent in Singapore and requires a proactive approach. A “wait-and-see” method can lead to the situation worsening over time.
Who Does It Affect?
Scoliosis most commonly appears in girls during childhood. Signs include uneven shoulder heights, a change in posture, and one shoulder blade appearing more prominent than the other.
Importance of Early Detection
Scoliosis should be detected early to prevent it from worsening. It can cause visible physical changes, postural abnormalities, and potential discomfort.
If it progresses without monitoring, the postural distortion can lead to significant health issues due to the pressure exerted on vital organs.
An evaluation by a chiropractor is crucial if certain conditions are met. These include a family history of spinal abnormalities, complaints of discomfort, respiratory symptoms, or abdominal difficulties. The stress on the nervous system due to rotational and postural abnormalities can also potentially impact organ function.
