Two broad categories of scoliosis that respond great to chiropractic, muscle work, and exercises

Depending on scoliosis curvature measurement chiropractic has been shown to help with these types of scoliosis

  • Scoliosis without a known cause is called idiopathic. In as many as 80% of cases, doctors don’t find the exact reason for a curved spine.
  • Degenerative scoliosis affects adults. It usually develops in the lower back as the disks and joints of the spine begin to wear out as you age.

These Conditions need to be com-managed and a trial treatment of chiropractic can be tried once spinal stability has been confirmed 

  • Congenital scoliosis begins as a baby’s back develops before birth. Problems with the tiny bones in the back, called vertebrae, can cause the spine to curve. The vertebrae may be incomplete or fail to divide properly. Doctors may spot this rare condition when the child is born. Or they may not find it until the teen years.
  • Neuromuscular scoliosis is caused by a disorder like spina bifida, cerebral palsy, or a spinal cord injury. These conditions sometimes damage your muscles so they don’t support your spine correctly. That can cause your back to curve.

Frequently asked questions with scoliosis
Life hacks to help stop annoying scoliosis pain

Q: What life hacks do you have for hip pain? 

A: Use small pillows or rolled towels under your rib cage or shoulders to support your curve while you sleep on your side

Q: Will I pass down scoliosis to my children? 

A: Scoliosis is hereditary and passed down in families. If you have scoliosis you should monitor for the signs/symptoms listed above (shorter leg, curved spine, one shoulder higher than the other etc...). It is important to monitor scoliosis in people who are not skeletally mature because the curvature can increase during normal growth spurts.  

Q: How do I get myself or my child diagnosed with scoliosis?

A: The first step is getting imaging, typically an X-ray, where a cobb angle will be given. This is a measurement of the degree of a side-to-side spinal curvature. It takes at least 10 degrees of deviation from straight before scoliosis is defined.

Q: How is scoliosis treated?

A: This depends on how skeletally mature the person with scoliosis is and how many degrees the curvature is. Typically curves under 25 degrees are monitored, over 25 degrees are braced and surgery is considered on curves over 40 degrees. It is extremely unlikely in healthy patients who are skeletally mature for the curveture to significantly increase over time. For patinets who are skeletally mature who have 10-40 degree curves chiropractic can be used to treat the associated joint and muscle pain.

Q: Can you re-align my scoliosis?

A: Previously, chiropractic adjustments were linked to an outdated theory where it was believed that bones could be put back into the place. Chiropractic can help acute scoliosis where the body has shifted away from the injuried area and is holdng a laterally swayed position, this is very common in disc bulge flare ups.  



Scoliosis 101

Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine that occurs most often during the growth spurt before puberty. Scoliosis can be caused by conditions such as cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, the cause of most scoliosis is unknown. About 10% of adolescents have scoliosis.

Most cases of scoliosis are mild, but some spine deformities continue to get more severe as children grow. Severe scoliosis can be disabling. An especially severe spinal curve can reduce the amount of space within the chest, making it difficult for the lungs to function properly.

Children who have mild scoliosis are monitored closely, usually with X-rays, to see if the curve is getting worse. In many cases, no treatment is necessary. Some children will need to wear a brace to stop the curve from worsening. Others may need surgery to keep scoliosis from worsening and to straighten severe cases of scoliosis.

My experience was great! Dr. Hendrix really helped with my scoliosis and my shin splints as well.
 He was super kind and helpful by giving me exercises to do at home. I will definitely be going back for adjustments and treatments in the future.
