Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine, and has classifications of mild, moderate, and severe degrees of distortion. At Healing by Design, mild and moderate degrees of scoliosis are worked with. We do not normally work with severe scoliosis when it is in a rapidly progressive stage. When mild scoliosis (which is called functional scoliosis) is detected early on and treated with specific applied kinesiology approaches to balancing muscle function, it can often be entirely eliminated. Moderate scoliosis can he alleviated to a significant degree and helped so that it does not progress.
It is very important to have your child’s spine evaluated for scoliosis detection, as early chiropractic treatment of the base of the spine and the base of the skull can be an important part of management so that the condition can monitored, and so that effort can be made in order for the condition not to progress.
