An abnormal lateral curvature of the spine. It occurs most often during the growth spurt just before puberty. Most cases are mild with few symptoms. Some children develop spine deformities that get more severe as they grow into adulthood. Consistent chiropractic care can greatly improve the scoliotic curve as the child grows.
An abnormally excessive convex curvature of the spine in the thoracic and sacral regions. Kyphosis refers to a forward rounding of the back or Hunchback. It’s most common in older women and often related to osteoporosis. Some people with kyphosis have back pain and stiffness, while others have no symptoms other than an exaggerated forward rounding of the back. Severe kyphosis can cause pain and be disfiguring.
Chiropractic care can treat both Scoliosis and Kyphosis to improve the function and movement of the spine and to give a healthier lifestyle to the individual.
