Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine. Some people are born with this type of spinal deformity, but most people develop scoliosis from poor posture or from injuries to their spine.
All children should receive a chiropractic check-up twice a year to detect scoliosis. If discovered early enough in a child's life, scoliosis may be reduced or even reversed.
How Chiropractic Can Help You
In order to properly heal your back, chiropractors perform "adjustments", or manipulations, to your spine. These treatments reduce or eliminate the inflammation on the nerve or in the surrounding soft tissue, like your muscles, tendons or ligaments. With the inflammation gone and your range of motion is restored, you can enjoy a pain free spine that's less likely to become arthritic as you age.
Dr. Schillinger uses a variety of adjusting techniques, which allows you to choose a treatment style that's most comfortable for you.
A major benefit of chiropractic care is that it does not require medications or surgery.
Because Schillinger Chiropractic and Wellness Center is focused on patient education, you'll learn the lifestyle changes you'll need to make (in exercise, diet, stress management) in order to maintain your spinal health on your own.
