Scoliosis involves having an abnormal "C" or "S" curvature of the spine (sometimes noticeable and sometimes not), and 1 out of every 100 people in New York, NY are diagnosed with the problem.
While treatment often involves wearing some type of brace, especially in more advanced cases or stages of scoliosis, chiropractic may be another effective option. And its benefits may tend to be long-term.
Studies show that engaging in regular chiropractic offers patients with scoliosis benefits may not only immediately after treatment, but possibly for up to two years post-treatment or more. These benefits include possible less curvature, reduced pain, and lower levels of disability related to the curvature of the spine. Add these together and this makes chiropractic a possible treatment remedy both short and long-term.
Although no one really knows the cause of scoliosis, chiropractic may be part of the solution. If you live near New York, NY, give Phelts Chiropractic Applied Kinesiology, Dr. John W. Phelts, D.C. a call today at (212) 286-2012 for an appointment.
