Scottsdale Scoliosis Treatment
Two to three people out of every one hundred people in the US are experiencing scoliosis. Scoliosis is an abnormal, S-shaped curve that affects the spine. This curve can cause a series of uncomfortable symptoms that affect the quality of life of those who have it.
How Scoliosis Affects Your Life
Scoliosis often causes chronic back pain. Scoliosis can also contribute to impaired posture, decreased flexibility, indigestion, and nerve interference. Nerve interference occurs when the nerves of the body are impaired from functioning normally. This is often caused by spinal misalignment. When the spine is misaligned, joints and bones negatively affect the nerves in the surrounding areas. This can create inflammation and pain in the nerves, as well as impede their ability to transport electrical impulses from the brain to the spinal cord (and back).
Our Scoliosis Treatment in Scottsdale
If you’re experiencing chronic back pain and poor posture, you may be suffering from scoliosis. Scoliosis is not always diagnosed early in life and typically worsens over time due to aging and degeneration. If scoliosis is left untreated, it can disrupt the alignment of other structures in the body, notably the shoulders, hips, and knees.
At Functional Wellness Center of Scottsdale, Arizona, our chiropractors use an advanced chiropractic technique called Chiropractic BioPhysics® to correct the abnormal curvature of the spine. Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP) is completely unique in the way that it contributes to proper spinal alignment long-term. Using a combination of tools (which sometimes include the ScoliBrace® or the Denneroll), in conjunction with mirror-image adjustments and physics-based spinal traction, Dr. Sarah Little and Dr. Andrew Kellog strive to deliver the most effective scoliosis correction available today.
