Evaluation A thorough evaluation is achieved through pictures and x-ray analysis with angle measurements. We will evaluate all aspects of the scoliosis curves that include rotational aspects of the vertebra and overall mechanical function of the spine. Many times patients are not aware they have any scoliosis curves until they're evaluated. They can be helped most of the time if caught before 50's. Also, if caught early enough in adolescence we may prevent further progression of the curves by proactive treatments.
Treatment Treatments are done through Biophysics protocols that involves opening and stretching the concaved side of the curves along with spinal manipulation and strengthening the weak muscles. Treatment can take some time as we rehab the spine to reduce the curve angles and improve the function of the spine allowing for better mobility and less wear and tear. Scoliosis usually cannot be "fixed" but it can be reduced and improved. Most cases are mild, however over time with aging and gravity, the curve angles can increase so it is encouraged to address any degree of scoliosis and reduce as much as possible then learn how to maintain any corrections through exercise and proper foam rolling exercises throughout life.
