Scoliosis is a complex condition affecting much more than just the spine. Numerous treatment options are available, but there is no single adjustment or therapy that is effective in all cases. As a result, it’s crucial that scoliosis treatment be customized to suit the needs of each individual patient.
At Beecher Chiropractic, Dr. Ward Beecher offers customized plans for scoliosis treatment in Houston based on key protocols that provide predictable and consistent results.
What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis causes the spine to curve to the side. The condition can affect any region of the spine, but it is must common in the chest area and the lower back. It can occur as the result of neuromuscular conditions, genetics, poor posture and several other factors.
Scoliosis Treatment in Houston
The exact treatment protocol for scoliosis varies from one patient to another, but there are certain components involved in nearly all treatment plans. Treatment begins with precision x-rays which are used to assess your spinal function and see your scoliosis. X-rays also provide a clear picture of what’s going on in other parts of your body, such as your neck and hips.
Using this information, we then develop a comprehensive treatment plan that includes advanced chiropractic techniques, exercises and, in some cases, additional therapies. The number of sessions required varies depending upon the severity of your scoliosis and a number of other factors.
Once your spine has been properly aligned, we will begin the rehab phase to ensure that the spine is properly “set” and the spinal curvature will not return.
When left untreated, the curvature of the spine can get worse and lead to more severe symptoms. At Beecher Chiropractic, we strive to provide effective scoliosis treatment to restore proper alignment and function and relieve pain. Chiropractic treatment is non-surgical and does not rely on the use of often dangerous and addictive pain medications.
