Chiropractic Treatment for Scoliosis Pain Management

Scoliosis is a condition in which the spine curves abnormally to the left or right side. It is a condition characterised by an abnormal sideways curvature of the spine. It can occur at any age, but it is most commonly diagnosed during the growth spurt that occurs just before puberty. Scoliosis is more common in girls than boys, and it tends to run in families.

Scoliosis is classified as either structural or functional. Structural scoliosis is caused by a permanent deformity in the spine, such as a malformed vertebra or a congenital condition. It tends to occur in childhood or adolescence and can progress as the individual grows.

Functional scoliosis, on the other hand, is caused by a temporary condition or imbalance in the muscles and is often reversible. It can occur at any age and may be caused by conditions such as muscle spasm, inflammation, or leg length discrepancy.It is important to seek medical attention for any suspected scoliosis, as early diagnosis and treatment can help prevent the condition from worsening.

The Signs and Symptoms of Scoliosis

The symptoms of scoliosis can vary depending on the severity of the curvature and the age of the individual. Here are common signs and symptoms associated with scoliosis:

  1. Uneven Shoulder Heights: One shoulder blade may appear higher or more prominent than the other when standing or sitting.
  2. Uneven Waist or Hips: The waistline may be uneven, with one side appearing higher or more pronounced than the other.
  3. Asymmetrical Rib Cage: In some cases, the ribs on one side of the body may be more prominent or stick out further than those on the other side.
  4. Visible Spinal Curve: In more severe cases of scoliosis, the curvature of the spine may be visibly noticeable when the person bends forward (Adam’s forward bend test). This can result in a “C” or “S” shape in the spine.
  5. Uneven Leg Length: Scoliosis can sometimes cause a functional leg length discrepancy, where one leg appears longer than the other due to the spinal curvature.
  6. Muscle Imbalances: Scoliosis can lead to muscle imbalances in the back and trunk, which can result in muscle fatigue, tension, or discomfort.
  7. Back Pain: Some individuals with scoliosis may experience back pain, particularly in the area of the spine that is curved. However, not all scoliosis cases are associated with pain.
  8. Reduced Mobility: Severe scoliosis can limit spinal mobility, making it challenging to move or twist the spine comfortably.
  9. Breathing Difficulties: In very severe cases, where the curvature affects the chest and ribcage significantly, scoliosis can lead to breathing difficulties.

Key Features of Scoliosis Management

In Australia, chiropractic care can be a form of therapy for scoliosis management. Chiropractors focus on the musculoskeletal system, including the spine, and use various techniques to address alignment and structural issues. Some individuals with scoliosis may find chiropractic care helpful in relieving symptoms and improving their overall well-being. Here are some key points to consider:

    1. Goals of Chiropractic Care for Scoliosis:
    • Chiropractors who work with scoliosis patients typically aim to:
      • Reduce pain and discomfort associated with scoliosis.
      • Improve spinal mobility and flexibility.
      • Enhance overall musculoskeletal function.
      • Promote better posture and body mechanics.
      • Provide supportive care to complement other treatment approaches, such as bracing or physical therapy.
    2. Types of Chiropractic Techniques:
    • Chiropractors use various manual adjustment techniques, including spinal manipulation, mobilisation, and soft tissue therapies, to address spinal misalignments and improve joint function.
    • Chiropractic care for scoliosis pain management often involves a combination of techniques tailored to the individual patient’s needs.
    3. Complementary Care: Chiropractic care is often used as a complementary approach in conjunction with other treatments for scoliosis pain management, such as physical therapy, bracing, and exercise.
    • Chiropractors may work in collaboration with orthopaedic specialists or other healthcare providers to develop a comprehensive treatment plan.
    4. Safety Considerations:
    • When seeking chiropractic care for scoliosis, it’s crucial to choose a licensed and experienced chiropractor who has expertise in treating scoliosis.
    • Chiropractic adjustments should be tailored to the patient’s specific condition, and the chiropractor should take into account the degree of curvature, age, and overall health of the patient.
    • Patients with severe scoliosis or other underlying medical conditions should consult with a spine specialist or orthopaedic surgeon for a comprehensive evaluation and appropriate treatment recommendations.
    5. Regular Monitoring:
    • Individuals receiving chiropractic care for scoliosis management should undergo regular monitoring to assess progress and ensure that the treatment plan is addressing their needs effectively.

Techniques used for Scoliosis management

There are several ways to check for scoliosis in adults and children:
  • Visual inspection: An individual or healthcare provider can look for signs of scoliosis by standing behind the person and looking for the curvature of the spine, uneven shoulders or hips, or tilting of the head.
  • Adam’s Forward Bend Test: In this test, the individual bends forward at the waist and the healthcare provider looks for any abnormalities in the spine, such as a rib hump or unevenness in the skin folds.
  • Scoliometer measurement: A scoliometer is a tool that measures the angle of curvature in the spine. It is a small, portable device that can be used to quickly and easily measure scoliosis.
  • X-rays: X-rays can be used to visualize the spine and confirm a diagnosis of scoliosis.
It is important to seek medical attention if scoliosis is suspected, as early diagnosis and treatment can help prevent the condition from worsening. Treatment options may include observation, bracing, or surgery, depending on the severity of the curvature and the age of the individual.

Say goodbye to posture pain with our comprehensive treatment options

Take the first step towards a pain-free life by booking a consultation with our posture pain treatment team. Our personalised treatment plans are designed to help you improve your posture and reduce discomfort. Let us help you live your best life.

We manage our patients with major scoliosis through habbit exercises and manipulating the spine to reduce the pressure on the body. We understand that you will never fix the scoliosis to perfection and so we correct the areas around it to not let the pressure get to the scoliotic part in the first place. That in turn reduces the scoliosis pain and makes it managable.

That depends on your scoliosis. Everybody is different so it causes pain in different parts. Its most likely scoliosis will occur in the mid to lower back so that’s where the pain usually ends up.

Scoliosis can be considered as uncontrollable bad posture due to genetic or environmental factors. Anything from slouching to carrying heavy objects could cause the pain from scoliosis to flare up.

Depending on the severity it can range from low grade anti-inflammatories to chiropractic treatment but in some more severe cases a scoliotic brace may be required. Please consult your healthcare professional before jumping to any conclusions.

There is no single answer for this. Pain is dependant entirely on the individual and no pain scale is the same. All we can answer is, “ it can get relatively intolerable”.

  • Again pain depends on the individual. The most common symptoms can be moderate to severe pain, Inability to breath due to collapsing of spine and severe loss of movement due to pain.

Do not self diagnose or self treat. Scoliosis is often made worse by the individual trying to correct their spine without medical consultation.

Wherever the scoliosis is located is where the weakness in the muscle is. Consult your medical professional so they can tell you exactly where the location of the scoliosis is and what potential muscle group is weak.

As scoliosis is defined as an abnormal bend of the spine in any direction or shape from the AP plane, it would mean that sleeping on your back would prevent any change from scoliosis occuring due to a lack of bending. However the spine does not work only in one direction as we must consider the natural spinal curves from the side. A medical professional from Posture Pain Correction would be able to tell you what position works best for you by understanding your spine on a 3D level.

This answer depeds on each individual case. Most scientific advise states that movement helps with the pain. In most cases the answer is yes but it varies on the individual. Consult a healthcare professional to get the best advice for you.
