Study Shows Chiropractic Effective for Adult Scoliosis Patients | Georgia Clinic of Chiropractic Blog - Augusta GA

Study Shows Chiropractic Effective for Adult Scoliosis Patients | Georgia Clinic of Chiropractic Blog - Augusta GA | Research Studies on Health and Chiropractic | Scoop.it

Scoliosis is a musculoskeletal disorder that adversely affects the shape of the spine (backbone). The spine is composed of bones called vertebrae. Normally, when viewed from behind, these bones (vertebrae) run down the back in a straight line. There are normal (front-to-back) curves of the spine; however, scoliosis is a side-to-side curvature of the spine. Therefore, a scoliotic spine (when viewed from behind) will not be straight and may instead look like the letter "C" or "S", due to the side-to-side (right-to-left) curvature. Adult scoliosis is relatively common compared to other musculoskeletal diseases.

Brian Foster, D.C.'s curator insight, August 27, 2014 2:57 PM
I have had a lot of patients who suffered from migraines prior to chiropractic, and now they are migraine free!
Voula Roumel's curator insight, June 6, 2015 2:18 AM

Despite its prevalence, migraines are still one of the most poorly understood disorders predominantly because experiences of those suffering from migraines vary greatly.

Some describe throbbing, searing pain, “auras” prior to onset, bizarre visual disturbances, nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, sweating, and/or sensitivity to light, sound, and smells. Most Chiropractors have seen a variety of symptoms over their careers and the most importantly a thorough examination must take place to exclude other conditions that can mimic Migraines. Chiropractic has the ability to change lives for Migraine suffers for the better.
