Scoliosis Sufferers: Relief with a Holistic Approach
By Debra Rodzinak
Much more than a simple curving of the spine, scoliosis and its associated problems are being studied by experts in the chiropractic field. In the past, 1 in 4 people who had scoliosis as a child ended up having surgery as an adult. The “wait and see” approach taken by the medical profession for people with scoliosis has led to physical damage along with psychological damage and ultimately ends up with patients undergoing invasive surgeries.
The Underlying Issue of Scoliosis
Now that experts are taking a step back and looking at better ways to treat scoliosis, the underlying cause is also being rethought. Many professionals now discuss the option of “scoliosis as a neurological condition that affects the spine in the form of a curvature.”
Chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic take a holistic view of disease and the power of the mind and a correctly functioning spine in healing the human body without drugs or surgery. One chiropractor describes his approach to scoliosis as a three-step approach:
- Nutritional diet
What you eat is just important as what you don’t eat. Keeping weight under control and eating a variety of foods is key to living a healthy lifestyle. When the body does not receive all of the vital nutrients it needs, it cannot function as intended. The chiropractors at the Joint Chiropractic can help advise patients on nutritional needs.
Supporting the spine with strong back and abdominal muscles is necessary for the spine to stay in place. When the spine slips out of placement, the nervous system can no longer function as intended and pain is often the symptom. By developing an overall treatment plan with the doctors at The Joint Chiropractic, patients learn which exercises are best for their particular condition.
But even with proper diet and exercise, if the spine is not properly aligned, pain can develop in different parts of the body. The entire staff at The Joint Chiropractic works with patients to develop a treatment plan that puts the patient in charge. It’s on your terms, not ours.
