Scoliosis Hallandale Chiropractor Amunategui II. coliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine that most often is diagnosed in adolescents. While scoliosis can occur in people with conditions such as cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, the cause of most childhood scoliosis is unknown. Most cases of scoliosis are mild, but some curves worsen as children grow.
Typically, scoliosis begins as a minor bend in the spine that gradually progresses over a lifetime. A diagnosis of scoliosis is made when the spine curves more than ten degrees to the right or left when a patient is facing the examiner. Once the spine has advanced to more extreme stages of scoliosis there can be severe health consequences.
The good news is that if the bending of the spine is discovered early on, and Chiropractic care is received, it can be prevented from advancing to a debilitating state. Amunategui II Chiropractic Center will show how scoliosis can be identified, and how chiropractic care in Hallandale Beach, Florida can work to reverse its effects and return your body to full health.
