Scoliosis can impede your health and happiness. If you’re suffering from scoliosis, Specific Care Chiropractic offers scoliosis treatment in Coconut Creek.
Our team will complete a thorough evaluation of your scoliosis. We will put together a Coconut Creek scoliosis treatment plan tailored to you. Our various therapeutic approaches may relieve or completely eliminate your symptoms. Our doctors use a combination of chiropractic adjustments and physiotherapy.
An Overview of Scoliosis and Its Symptoms
Scoliosis occurs when the spine curves in an unnatural way, and children, adolescents, and adults may suffer from it. This condition may become worse over time. Per Mayo Clinic, symptoms of scoliosis may include:
- Slanting or uneven shoulders
- Uneven shoulder blades
- An uneven waistline
- A prominence in one side of the rib cage
- A prominence in one side of the back
Complications of scoliosis may be most worrisome. You may experience breathing issues because your rib cage presses against your lungs. You may have chronic back problems, develop an abnormal gait that leads to injuries, and feel uncomfortable with your appearance.
Effective treatment may ease one or more of your scoliosis symptoms. At Specific Care Chiropractic, we aim for the best possible health outcomes that you can achieve.
What Happens If You Don’t Seek Treatment for Your Scoliosis?
In addition to providing relief, scoliosis treatment may save you from worsening symptoms and avoidable scoliosis-related injuries. If you’ve yet to have complications of scoliosis, they may emerge with time.
No matter your age or the severity of your symptoms, it is generally worth seeking treatment.
Our Team Crafts Treatment Based on Your Specific Needs
When you come to Specific Care Chiropractic, we provide personalized treatment. Rather than recommending a catch-all treatment, our team will generally:
Complete Necessary Imaging
We’ll typically take X-rays of your spine. This simple procedure will provide insight into the nature and severity of your scoliosis. If we believe they’ll be helpful, we may recommend other imaging tests to aid our diagnosis.
Assess the Rigidity of Your Spine
Spine rigidity is a factor in our treatments. We will never perform any treatment we believe to be unsafe. By gauging the rigidity of your spine and the possible presence of nerve damage, we can develop a treatment plan that’s right for you.
Gauge Neural Communication Throughout Your Body
We will measure your sensorimotor integration (SMI), which tells us how well your brain and body are communicating. The state of communication may tell us about the state of your spine. Balance tests may be among the ways we test your neural communication.
With these steps, we can determine your treatment needs. We’ll explain how much chiropractic care you may require based on your goals. Our scoliosis treatment in Coconut Creek generally involves at-home care. Our team will explain how you can continue your treatment even when you’re not in our office.
What Treatment Does Specific Care Chiropractic Offer for Scoliosis?
Specific Care Chiropractic offers several forms of treatment. Our treatment recommendations for those suffering from scoliosis may include:
One of the pillars of our treatment offerings, chiropractic adjustments may prove effective for scoliosis symptoms. Also known as spinal manipulation, chiropractic adjustments realign your spinal joints and vertebrae into proper position.
Chiropractic adjustments come in several forms, including:
- Diversified adjustments
- Seated diversified
- Extremity manipulation
- Toggle recoil
- Sacral-occipital technique (SOT)
- Side posture
- Thompson Drop-Table Technique
Our trained, licensed chiropractors will explain these specific procedures to you. Before you receive any adjustments, we’ll ensure you’re properly informed.
Another bedrock of our treatment offerings, physiotherapy produces significant results for many of our patients.
Our physiotherapy offerings in Coconut Creek include:
- Corrective care
- Rehabilitative therapy
- Electrical muscle stimulation (E-STIM) therapy
- Stretching and strengthening exercise therapy
- Massage therapy
- Ultrasound therapy
One or more types of physiotherapy could help your scoliosis. Like our chiropractic adjustments, we’ll fully explain any recommended therapy before administering it.
Is Coconut Creek Scoliosis Treatment Safe?
We administer all treatments in a safe, controlled manner. The International Journal of Community Based Nursing and Midwifery has concluded that the quality of chiropractic care varies between practitioners. That is why we urge you to receive treatment from Specific Care Chiropractic, as we never compromise on patient safety.
You must also consider the question: Is chiropractic care or physiotherapy safe compared to other types of medical care? The Journal of Evidence-Based Alternative Medicine concluded that chiropractic care poses no greater risk than medical care one would otherwise receive for the same symptoms. For many patients, our treatments may be alternatives to far riskier procedures like surgery.
Are Specific Care Chiropractic’s Treatments Effective?
Every patient is different. They come into our offices with unique symptoms, and each patient responds differently to treatment. With that being said, we don’t administer any treatment unless we believe it could be effective for you. The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) aggregated several studies showing the effectiveness of chiropractic care. Those studies show that chiropractic care:
- May relieve both acute and chronic pain
- Is often effective for those with back-specific problems
- May relieve symptoms that would otherwise qualify the patient for disability
These studies speak to the general effectiveness of chiropractic care. Several studies also found that chiropractic care may be safer than certain medical alternatives.
Our team may provide similar citations for any physiotherapy we recommend. You should be satisfied with the reasoning for any treatment. We will do our best to help you understand why we recommend the treatment that we do.
