Learn About Your Different Options Before Rushing into Surgery
While we might not know why the majority of scoliosis cases occur, the scientific community is very clear on how curves develop and behave over time. In short, a small curvature for older patients with a more mature spine, will likely have no issues without treatment. On the other hand, a bigger curve seen in a younger patient has a high chance of progressing and needing treatment.
The key message: treatment should be undertaken as soon as possible to help stop progression
At Precision Spine, we’re trained in safe and effective treatments other than bracing or surgery. These treatment methods can be done by nearly all patients, and will not only stabilize the scoliosis curvature, but the majority of patients dramatically reduce the curve they already have. Why not try a safe, natural method before going into surgery?
Are there side effects after chiropractic scoliosis treatment?
A recent study* found that the rate of moderate side effects was one per 533 visits. This study involved 189 scoliosis patients surveyed from 9 chiropractic offices over a timeframe of one calendar year.
In short, mild side effects can be expected after scoliosis treatment but are generally benign. This means there was no serious adverse events that required medical attention, hospital stays, or surgical intervention.
