As Seen On
This age group often is overlooked in the need for chiropractic care. This is when kids are the most active, whether they are participating in sports, dance or daily in gym classes. This is the prime years of growing and development especially of their skeletal system. Since their bodies are growing and developing this is also the best time to be assess for scoliosis. Scoliosis is a common problem with many adolescent and teenage children especially in females. A scoliosis is a significant curve in the spine. Typically a scoliosis is considered a curve or misalignment of 20-40 degrees.
This is an area in which we can help. If you already have a scoliosis or it is just starting, the earlier that it is detected the better chances you have of correcting and reversing any permanent effects. If you have a scoliosis, the spine is out of proper position and is putting pressure on the nerves that exit the spinal column where there is a curve. We work at correcting those spinal curvatures.
In addition to scoliosis, back and neck pain can be common for adolescents and teenagers. Many are sitting for seven to eight hours a day in school, many times with very poor posture. All that sitting can be hard on your spine especially if you are slouching or have poor posture. This is another reason to come in and get checked out for any spinal misalignments. We want to maintain a healthy spine and teach you how to maintain proper posture, which is so important while you are sitting all day in school.
