Scoliosis is one of the most common reasons why patients seek chiropractic care. Scoliosis describes a condition where there is a sideways curve in the spine. The angle of the curve may be slight or extreme, depending on the severity. Sometimes, the letters “C” or “S” may be used to describe the curve.

Visible symptoms of scoliosis, in addition to curvature of the spine, may include uneven shoulders or hips, or ribs that stick out further on one side than the other. Scoliosis can also cause fatigue, muscle strain, back stiffness, pain and/or numbness in the legs, and lower back pain.

Types of Scoliosis

There are several different types of scoliosis. Regardless of which type of scoliosis you struggle with, chiropractic treatment can help relieve discomfort and correct curvature in the spine.

Idiopathic Scoliosis

Although this type of scoliosis has no known cause, it is the most common type. Nearly 80% of cases are idiopathic scoliosis. This type tends to run in families and more often affects girls than boys. This type of scoliosis is usually diagnosed during adolescence.

Neuromuscular Scoliosis

This type of scoliosis, also known as myopathic scoliosis, is caused by other disorders, such as spina bifida, cerebral palsy, or a spinal cord injury. These conditions can weaken or damage the muscles in the back, which leaves the spinal column unsupported and likely to curve.

Degenerative Scoliosis

Degenerative scoliosis occurs in adults and results from aging. Joint and spine degeneration happen slowly, and over time, the spine starts to curve. Luckily, this condition can be reversed, especially if chiropractic treatment is sought.

Congenital Scoliosis

Congenital scoliosis develops in utero and is caused by vertebrae in the baby’s spine that are incomplete or fail to divide properly. While this condition is typically diagnosed during infancy, it may go unnoticed until adolescence.

If you suspect your infant may have congenital scoliosis, schedule a consultation at our office and visit our pediatric chiropractic treatment page for more information on our chiropractic care for infants.

Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment for Scoliosis

When you start chiropractic care for scoliosis with Dr. Pitcairn, you can look forward to the following benefits and reliefs:

Pain Relief

Scoliosis can be painful, especially if it is accompanied by muscle spasms, difference in leg height, or inflammation. Dr. Pitcairn will work closely with you to establish short-term recovery goals that are centered around immediate pain relief. As you recover, you will continue to work with Dr. Pitcairn through wellness visits to maintain the relief you achieve.

Improved Mobility

Walking, sleeping, and other daily activities can be difficult when you are struggling with scoliosis pain. Chiropractic treatment for scoliosis helps improve mobility and functioning. Dr. Pitcairn will take into account all areas of your body that may be affected by scoliosis and use proven techniques to provide relief.

Drug-Free Treatment

Chiropractic care is effective without drugs, painkillers, or other medications. While short-term relief is possible with certain drugs, they don’t always effectively address the problem at its source. Dr. Pitcairn uses techniques and methods to gently correct your scoliosis and relieve your pain without reliance on drugs.

Non-Invasive Treatment

Sometimes, scoliosis may require surgery. However, most cases can be managed with the right chiropractic care plan. Chiropractic treatment for scoliosis is holistic, non-invasive, and safe to engage in often. Dr. Pitcairn will address your immediate pain and work with you long-term to sustain your recovery.

What to Expect: Working with a Chiropractor for Scoliosis

To effectively treat scoliosis, Dr. Pitcairn uses chiropractic techniques and adjustments to address the curvature in the spine and relieve discomfort. You will start with an initial consultation to discuss your primary symptoms, your family and personal health history, and any other discomfort you may be experiencing.

Then, you will undergo a series of tests to confirm a scoliosis diagnosis. These tests include a physical examination and computer testing, as well as in-house x-rays if necessary. Dr. Pitcairn will then review the results of your tests and come up with a care plan that is tailored to your condition and recovery goals.

The primary goal of your initial treatment is to address your acute pain and discomfort. Once you have achieved a certain level of relief, you will move onto maintenance treatments to help sustain any progress you have made.

Regardless of how long you have been living with scoliosis, chiropractic treatment can help. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Pitcairn at our office in Oregon City today to start feeling better.
