Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine, in which the spine develops an “s” shape, rather than appearing as a straight line when viewed from the back. Normally found during a school screening, and affecting approximately 2%-3% of American teenagers, scoliosis results in muscle strain and off-center vertebrae that impact the surrounding nerves, causing pain and limiting range of movement.
Traditional scoliosis management has involved a rigid orthopedic brace or, rarely, surgery. Surgery is not considered as an option unless the curvature of the spine exceeds 40°, which only occurs in about .01% of cases. Causes of scoliosis include bone abnormality at birth (congenital scoliosis), injury, trauma, illness, or surgery (degenerative scoliosis), and muscle or nerve abnormality (neuromuscular scoliosis). In most cases, however, there is no apparent identifiable cause, leading to a diagnosis of idiopathic scoliosis, which accounts for 80% of all scoliosis. Scoliosis specialists now recommend SpineCor bracing for idiopathic scoliosis treatment, and we are proud to offer SpineCor at Fort Bend Corrective Health Center.
At Fort Bend Corrective Health Center, we take a holistic approach to healing and wellness, preferring natural therapies and treatments like chiropractic, massage, good nutrition, physical therapy, and plant-based supplements, rather than medicinal or surgical options. Our goal is to empower patients to live in an optimum state of wellness, leading happy, healthy, active lives. Our scoliosis doctors, in keeping with this approach, offer scoliosis treatment emphasizing the primary goals of optimal posture and spinal alignment, striving to improve a patient’s pain and mobility. These goals are accomplished through natural, rehabilitative therapies.
