You may never know you have a herniated disc because it doesn't always cause symptoms. However, the herniated disc may irritate the nearby nerves or soft tissue. In this case, you may have pain. Weakness, numbness, tingling, or a burning sensation are also possible as well. Depending on the location of the herniated disc, you may experience symptoms that extend throughout your legs or your arms. If the symptoms worsen, they could interfere with your daily life.
What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is defined as an abnormal curvature of the spine. In the vast majority of cases, the curvature is sideways, but there may be more than one curvature issue in scoliosis victims. It’s estimated that almost three percent of the population suffers from scoliosis. Diagnosis is conducted by visual and x-ray methods.
Scoliosis can form as the result of a birth deformity or as an effect of an underlying condition such as cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy. It’s commonly believed that scoliosis is a hereditary condition, although there are cases where no hereditary link is found. Whatever the cause of scoliosis, our chiropractors can help alleviate the resulting discomfort and pain associated with scoliosis.
The Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment for Scoliosis
There are a tremendous number of benefits of chiropractic treatments for scoliosis. For starters, scoliosis patients may have undergone corrective surgery for the condition. However, with chiropractic treatment, no surgery is required.
Our chiropractors perform a completely non-invasive procedure, so the patient does not have to worry about surgery. Secondly, chiropractic treatment is often effective immediately. That means that, for a scoliosis patient in intense pain, immediate relief may be available after just one visit. Follow up visits will likely be necessary for adjustments.
