Scoliosis: Cured vs Controlled

When we look at the spine from the front, it should be straight. Scoliosis patients have a substantial amount of ligament laxity, especially in the neck. Therefore, manual manipulation or adjustments of the neck may not be as useful as adjustments in the pelvis, low back or middle back. Scoliosis patients are not cured but are controlled with soft tissue therapy and exercises. If you have a scoliosis, doing some type of exercise therapy is better than doing nothing.

When the spine loses the good curves, it compensates by putting in bad sideways curves (scoliosis). In order to correct the bad curves, the good curves must be reintroduced and in my office I teach patients how to use ELDOA exercises to do this.

You can come into the office and work with our ELDOA specialist. Learn a home exercise program to help control scoliosis.

Scoliosis Treatment

Although scoliosis is most commonly asymptomatic in children, the presence of the disease more than triples one’s risk for developing spine pain as an adult.

Curve improvement correction is possible through conservative care, however conservative management of scoliosis can prove challenging, with some cases slowed or even reversed through appropriate management while others progress relentlessly.

In my office we use ELDOA exercises to manage scoliosis.
