Scoliosis is a medical condition in which the spine is curved in an abnormal manner (sometimes resembling an “S” or “C” shape). While surgery may be required in some cases, many patients choose to manage their scoliosis through more natural means. At Decatur Pain & Rehab in Dekalb County, our chiropractors offer scoliosis management to not only help our patient’s condition but to also relieve the painful symptoms associated with scoliosis.
The curvature of the spine is not what causes pain in patients afflicted with scoliosis; this is typically caused when the muscles, joints, bones, and tendons around the spine are unaligned, constricted, or stretched. To treat this pain, our Cobb County scoliosis management team may recommend chiropractic care, massage therapy or cold laser therapy.
Exercise can also help with scoliosis management. Our specialist can recommend customized exercises that will strengthen the muscles and tendons around the spine as well as stretch these soft tissues to ease the stress.
