Scoliosis Treatment

NeuroStructural Chiropractic care is a gentle, conservative treatment designed to alleviate the dysfunction and discomfort associated with the abnormal spinal curvature known as scoliosis. There are several types of scoliosis, ranging from those that develop during gestation to those that develop spontaneously during adulthood. Regardless of the origin of the disorder, scoliosis demonstrates a hallmark lateral (sideways) curvature of the spine, which, depending on its severity, can significantly compromise proper neuromusculoskeletal function.

At Revolution Chiropractic, we address scoliosis discomfort and dysfunction by gently and progressively increasing range of motion and improving mobility. While we understand that adult scoliosis may not be completely curable, it is our goal to restore normal neuromusculoskeletal function, prevent further spinal degeneration and improve your quality of life.

What to Expect With Chiropractic Scoliosis Treatment

At Revolution Chiropractic, our evaluation and our individualised care is designed to address spinal misalignments at their source. As such, we perform a comprehensive physical examination for each of our new patients, which includes structural, digital x-rays (when clinically required) and a thorough neurostructural exam that includes 5 specific types of testing.

We will specifically examine the curvature of your spine and discuss your current concerns, history and daily activities. This in-depth process allows us to collect all of the information we need to create the most informed diagnosis and comprehensive treatment plan possible. After collecting and evaluating all necessary information, we’ll then formulate a customized plan to provide you with the best outcome possible.

Due to the nature of scoliosis, specific care is required with expert technique and precision. Dr. Mark Illguth is highly trained in the management of scoliosis and performs gentle adjustments and various corrective techniques to progressively improve the function and health or the spine.

Health Benefits of Scoliosis Spinal Care

Lateral curvature of the spine is far from normal, and as such, it can significantly affect a wide variety of systemic functions. Not only does scoliosis cause postural issues, muscular imbalances, discomfort and limited mobility, but the disorder has also been known to trigger cardiovascular problems and digestive difficulties. If you’re struggling with debilitating issues as a result of scoliosis, NeuroStructural chiropractic care may offer the following benefits:

Restored Spinal Function
When your spine features a sideways curvature, your vertebrae place pressure on your spinal discs, which can result in significant discomfort with certain movements. Because the vertebrae and spinal discs are misaligned, they also place pressure on the nerve roots that stem from the spinal cord, which can generate tremendous discomfort even while stationary.

Scoliosis also creates a glaring muscular imbalance, which causes muscles to tighten and even spasm, resulting in pain and fatigue. Gentle NeuroStructural chiropractic adjustments work to reduce joint restriction in the spine and restore function normal spacing between the vertebrae. As we relieve pressure on your spinal nerve roots, reduce joint restrictions and work to restore muscular balance, you’ll experience significant pain relief.

Improved Nerve Signaling
Abnormal spinal curvature affects the nerve roots that stem from your spinal cord. When vertebrae and discs are misaligned, they can irritate, stretch and exert pressure on your nerves, which impedes their ability to signal properly/function normally.

Often, compressed spinal nerves affect bodily systems that appear to be wholly unrelated to the spinal condition. As we gradually relieve pressure on spinal discs and restore space between vertebrae, we relieve pressure on your nerves, which allows them to function as intended.

Flexibility and Quality of Life
When your spine is misaligned, it creates muscular imbalances, ligament issues and potential stability problems that necessitate compensation in your movement patterns. When you alter the way you normally move, this generates muscular imbalances that can cause joint and soft tissue abnormalities and discomfort.

Through gentle NeuroStructural chiropractic adjustments, our aim is to progressively bring the spine toward an acceptable level of deviation. This opens up more space between the vertebrae, therefore improving your posture and reducing the need for altered movement patterns. You’ll experience improvements in mobility, range of motion, function and quality of life as a result.

What Conditions Can Benefit from Scoliosis Treatment?

Scoliosis is characterized by abnormal posture, uneven hips, uneven shoulders, abnormal gait and even visible spinal misalignment. These phenomena result in a variety of conditions that may can benefit from chiropractic care, including:

  • Muscle spasms
  • Fatigue
  • Persistent muscular discomfort
  • Joint pain
  • Gait abnormalities
  • Digestive issues
  • Breathing problems
  • Limited range of motion and mobility

Frequently Asked Questions

There is currently no cure for scoliosis. With ongoing treatment, however, we can prevent further spinal deterioration, strengthen the Neuromusculature around the spine, relieve pressure on spinal discs, restore muscular balance and provide significant relief.

Absolutely! In our Miami, Queensland clinic, we can provide you with the appropriate diagnosis and determine the degree of your spine’s curvature. We can then formulate an individualized plan of treatment to halt the progression of the condition, relieve existing discomfort and restore normal mobility. Early detection is paramount in progress of a patient.
