Scoliosis is a sideways curving of the spine, and a condition that usually starts in our childhood when the bones are still growing. We don’t really know much about the exact cause of scoliosis. It is thought to be hereditary, or an adaptation to trauma during the birth process or falling of a bicycle. We do know that it usually starts with the lower back, and if left untreated it will get worse.
If detected and treated early enough, a chiropractor can really help with scoliosis. Dr. Beaber’s approach is to use specific spinal adjustments combined with traction and corrective exercises.
The key is early detection and correction. If you would like help, or maybe have a younger child that might have scoliosis, please visit us for a free consultation. Our phone number is (317) 776-1061 and you can make an appointment for our Noblesville office via our website 24 hours day.
