When left untreated, scoliosis can cause an array of long term problems to your comfort and spinal health. Understanding the signs of scoliosis will often enable you to detect it early on, which will aid in reducing the impact that scoliosis has on your quality of life. When you work with our experts at Grant Chiropractic, you will be able to access superior treatment for scoliosis, as well as diagnostic services to detect the presence of scoliosis.
Family History of Scoliosis
If you have a family history of scoliosis, you will be more likely to experience it yourself. Ask your parents about scoliosis that may run in your family. If scoliosis does run in your family, you may want to visit your chiropractor on a regular basis to identify the signs that you may be developing scoliosis.
Scoliosis places pressure unevenly on your spine, because your spine doesn’t maintain a straight line. This often results in spinal stiffness. If you find that you are abnormally stiff in your spine, it is possible that you have scoliosis. You will want to ensure that you visit your chiropractor to identify the cause of your spinal stiffness.
Scoliosis makes it difficult, and occasionally impossible, to maintain good posture. There are many different ways in which scoliosis can impact your posture. Uneven shoulders, leaning to a single side, having a slight limp, and many additional posture problems may be an indication of scoliosis.
Not only can scoliosis cause stiffness in the spine, but it can also cause a significant amount of back pain. Back pain is a sure sign that you should schedule a visit with your chiropractor. When you work with our team at Grant Chiropractic, you will be able to identify the underlying issue that is causing your back pain. We can also create a treatment plan to address the issue and restore your comfort and health.
Ill Fitting Clothing
Clothing generally isn’t designed for a spine with scoliosis. If you find that your clothing isn’t fitting properly, it is possible that you have scoliosis. A visit to your chiropractor will help to ensure that you can identify the problem and resolve it.
Scoliosis can have a huge impact on your health and comfort. If you have scoliosis, it is important to obtain appropriate treatment to ensure that you can minimize the impact that this has on your life.
