Providing Burlington With Natural Means to Manage Scoliosis that Are Both Effective and Affordable
Scoliosis is can be an aggravating condition.
You may experience stiffness or pain and quite commonly a noticeably abnormal posture.
If you or your child has been diagnosed with scoliosis then you may have been told that there are basically three choices — surgery, bracing or do nothing.
We will start with an in-depth consultation at our Burlington location about your child’s condition and well-being.
All three of these options come with complications:
Despite What You’ve Been Told, There Are More Options. A Less Invasive Treatment Can Help.
At Maximized Health in Burlington, our doctors have helped hundreds of scoliosis patients with chiropractic to straighten up, feel better, increase mobility, rid their bodies of back pain and return to a normal life. Chiropractic has a long record of helping people with scoliosis. If you have scoliosis, then this could be your best option!
A study in a scientific journal from 2001 (JMPT) showed an actual decrease in the abnormal curvature of scoliosis patients who received chiropractic care. The lead from the study, Dr. Charles Lantz, DC, PhD said…
“Chiropractic appears to offer a distinct advantage in the management and monitoring of early stage scoliosis.”
It was important to note that from this study it was concluded that the sooner a someone started treatment, the better the chances of change in the curvature.
Another study demonstrated that “the combined use of spinal manipulation [chiropractic care] and postural therapy appeared to significantly reduce the severity of the Cobb angle in all 19 subjects.” (BMC Muscoloskelet Disorders 2004). The Cobb angle is a measurement to determine the amount of improper curvature of a patient with scoliosis.
It’s time for you to find out if chiropractic can help your scoliosis. We will start with an in-depth consultation at our Burlington location about your condition and well-being and our doctors will listen…really listen…to the details of your case. We are very thorough with our exams and if indicated (and most likely it will be if you know you have scoliosis) we will request a full set of specialized x-rays to determine the extent of your scoliosis.
You will also have the opportunity to ask all the questions you have about what exactly is wrong, what other complications could scoliosis cause, and what will it take to correct.
