Dr. Johnson Wants To Help You End Scoliosis Pain Now
Scoliosis occurs when an irregular curvature takes place along the spinal column. This condition may have been present since birth. This condition occurs along the spine when the spine becomes abnormally curved and rotated sideways. While there is generally no known cause for the condition, it has been observed to occur in families. While the specific genes related to scoliosis are still being identified, the cause could reach beyond genes as well.

Because we take a whole-person approach to your chiropractic wellness in St George, our chiropractor will look to the potential underlying causes of your pain to correct the curvature you are experiencing. Scoliosis can affect us as early as infancy and why Dr. Johnson suggests bringing your little one for a visit early on to rule out scoliosis or any other potential spinal issues.

There are three types of scoliosis:

  • Infantile idiopathic scoliosis which develops from birth to 3 years old
  • Juvenile idiopathic scoliosis which develops from 4 to 9 years old
  • Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis which develops from 10 to 18 years old

You may or may not be experiencing pain as a result of scoliosis. Identifying whether or not it exists is key. Even in the absence of pain, our experienced chiropractor will create a treatment plan that works preventively. We will determine the right amount of relief and corrective care based on your personal situation. Because a scoliotic condition involves a spinal curvature, it is considered a musculoskeletal concern where other vertebrae, muscles, tendons and ligaments may be affected.

Typically, without chiropractic care, a doctor will merely suggest observation for a scoliotic curve that has not yet reached 25 degrees. Every 4 to 6 months, another X-ray of the spine will be performed to see if the scoliosis is progressing. This however exposes the patient to unnecessary radiation and does nothing active to help prevent the curve from reaching 25 degrees. It is our endeavor to prevent the curve from reaching clinical status by performing regular, maintenance care.
