Scoliosis Relief from a Chiropractor in Marysville, WA

As many as three percent of Americans, an estimated seven million people, suffer from scoliosis. While most consider it a childhood affliction, it can strike anyone from infancy to adulthood, according to our chiropractor in Marysville, WA. Fortunately, patients with this condition can find relief from discomfort thanks to natural, non-invasive treatment from Health First Chiropractic Marysville.

Scoliosis Overview

Human bodies are able to bend and execute other motions thanks to the curve formed by the arrangement of spinal vertebrae. Healthcare professionals diagnose scoliosis as a spinal curve in excess of 10 degrees. Scoliosis causes the spine to assume an “S” or a “C” shape.

Our chiropractor notes that as many as eighty percent of cases are idiopathic, meaning they have no identifiable cause. Neurological disease, trauma, and tumors are common culprits for the remainder.

Both males and females can have this disorder. However, females are eight times more likely than males to reach a curve with a magnitude that makes treatment necessary.

Among children, this condition typically occurs by age fifteen, but might already be present at birth. While some suffers of scoliosis show no symptoms, the most common signs include:

  • • Head appearing off center
  • • Shoulders measuring at different heights
  • • Pushed-out appearance of ribs
  • • One hip appearing higher than the other
  • • Differing heights of each side of the back
  • • Failure of arms to fall straight down in a standing position

Scoliosis affects the quality of life in many ways, particularly in children. Among them are pain, limited activity, reduced respiratory function, and lowered self-esteem. All of these make it important for a symptomatic youngster to visit our chiropractic practice and undergo an evaluation by a pediatric chiropractor in Marysville, WA. Typical problems affecting adults include shortness of breath, difficulty walking, losing height, and fatigue. 

How Chiropractic Treats Scoliosis

When a comprehensive chiropractic evaluation results in a positive scoliosis diagnosis, our doctor will create a customized treatment plan to relieve the pain. Children benefit most from treatment provided by our pediatric chiropractor in Marysville, WA.

Our goal is to keep patients as physically active as possible during treatment. Many benefit from bracing.  Spinal manipulation and exercises prescribed by our chiropractor are especially helpful in relieving back pain.

Testimonial

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Clarke is the best in the business!!! He is knowledgeable, thorough, passionate, kind compassionate, and always professional. He worked me into his already busy schedule, when I was having severe vertigo, caused by a pinched nerve in my neck. Dr. Clarke had me back to good in just a few short weeks."

  • "I have had a hard time finding relief for my back pain, I've been a chronic 7 for almost 5-6 years now (on a pain scale from 1 -10). After about 6-7 visits and after 3-4 adjustments, I was amazed to realize I no longer had any back pain. Dr. Clarke was careful about doing adjustments until he saw all my x-rays, which I appreciated, as my mid-back was literally like a 'brick' and I didn't want to get hurt in the process. He is very gentle with the adjustments and I'm still somewhat speechless that my chronic pain is completely gone. I'm happy to recommend this place, as they helped me tremendously."
