Scoliosis is a Greek term meaning “crooked,” it is a condition of the spine where the bones (vertebrae) have curved as opposed to the normal straight up and down alignment. Scoliosis is not a fatal condition, and most people with scoliosis can live normal lives. In severe cases, sometimes the person may have difficulty breathing or heart functions if the curve is bad enough. Chiropractic helps the body without surgery or braces, using only gentle, hands-on adjustments. The goal of chiropractic is to free the body from neurological interference: subluxation. Once the nerves are functioning properly and the body is allowed to heal, this can help improve overall health and wellbeing, even positively changing the scoliotic curve.
