Scoliosis Care in Boulder

checking girl's spine for scoliosisScoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine most often seen in adolescents. There are three classes of this abnormal curvature of the spine. Idiopathic, no known cause, congenital, resulting from an issue during pregnancy, and neuromuscular, related to muscular diseases such as cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy. The most common type of this spinal condition is usually diagnosed in adolescents during puberty.

Most cases are mild; curves may worsen as children mature. An especially severe spinal curve may reduce the chest cavity, making it difficult for the lungs to function properly.

What Are Some Symptoms?

There are several signs that may indicate scoliosis. If one or more of the following signs is noticed, schedule an appointment today at our clinic:

  • Shoulders are uneven—one or both shoulder blades may stick out
  • Head is not directly centered above the pelvis
  • One or both hips are raised or unusually high
  • Rib cages are at different heights
  • Waist is uneven
  • Changes in the appearance or texture of the skin, such as dimples, hairy patches, or color
  • The entire body leans to one side

An abnormally curved spine is usually diagnosed by physical examination, X-ray, spinal radiograph, CT scan, or MRI. The Cobb Method is used to measure the curve—the higher the number of degrees, the more severe the condition.

Case Study

A case study involved a 75-year-old male patient who came to our practice for wellness care complaining of mild to moderate shoulder pain. A lumbar scoliosis with a Cobb angle of 11 degrees was found on a standing radiograph. Our doctors implemented a care plan using a low-force, tonal chiropractic adjustment technique to make the necessary changes.

The patient received NS care for a two-year period. The patient was also given two stretches for rehabilitation at home. The Cobb angle reduced to three degrees after one year, and less than one degree after two years. The patient’s general health improved as a result of these changes.

The study concluded that NS care, and other low force techniques, may be effective healing methods that address structural deformities in the spine and restore normal curvature. More research is needed in this area.

This form of healing involves a change of structure, behavior, and perception. NS uniquely works with all three—spinal behavior, perception, and structural posture—at the same time, recognizing there’s a real person in your body controlling your spine. This makes the postural results more sustainable, complete and profound, supporting and being supported by the life you’re meant to live.
