Can chiropractic or massage therapy help relieve pain from scoliosis? Scoliosis is a very common condition that is diagnosed to over 3 million people in the U.S. per year. It’s usually diagnosed around the time a child goes through puberty, but can last long into adulthood. Symptoms of scoliosis may include uneven shoulders or waist, leaning to one side, muscle spasms, or physical deformity. Along with these symptoms, a person diagnosed with scoliosis may have back pain.
Chiropractic treatment may help to gradually correct the spine into the classic curve through precise and gentle adjustments. Those who can benefit from chiropractic care include:
People recently diagnosed who are experiencing back pain
Teenagers who don’t want to wear a back brace
People who have been diagnosed but want to avoid surgery
People who have had surgery but want to avoid having another surgery
Those diagnosed with scoliosis can benefit greatly from receiving chiropractic care paired with massage therapy.
This combination therapy can help those diagnosed by:
Increasing quality of life
Improving the Cobb angle
Getting better sleep
Relieving muscle tension
Chiropractic care paired with medical massage therapy can help improve blood flow to stimulate healing along with relieving tight muscles. For more information about how chiropractic and massage can help your scoliosis symptoms, please visit www.praglechiro.com or call 850-508-5951.
