In our first meeting, we examine your medical history and current condition to determine possible treatment options. This initial meeting will take about an hour and every appointment after will be about half an hour. However, times may vary based on the specifics of a patient’s treatment plan. One of the care options at Madeira Chiropractic and Rehab is chiropractic scoliosis care in Chambersburg, PA.
What Chiropractic Scoliosis Care Can Offer You
Scoliosis is the sideways curving of the spine. Growing children are the most vulnerable to develop scoliosis as their spines can curve 10 degrees in a matter of months. This is faster than any rate at any other time in life.
The curvature most often occurs during the growth spurt during puberty. While most instances of the condition, spines curved by 20 degrees or fewer, are no cause for concern, some children can develop spine deformations that worsen as they grow.
Regular screenings can catch early signs of scoliosis and our licensed chiropractors can provide a back brace if necessary. While testing and treatment can help prevent the curvature from worsening, patients will also need to exercise to strengthen the back. Exercises will vary based on the degree and location of the spinal curve as well as the patient’s age.
