With two locations to serve residents of Spring Hill and Hudson residents, Family Chiropractic Center for Wellness addresses your spinal needs. We welcome patients of all ages who are struggling with spinal malformations such as scoliosis. If you suspect a spinal concern in your child or yourself, please visit us for a complete evaluation. Our qualified chiropractors, Dr. Brian Dahmer and Dr. Anish Patel, examine your spine and posture. We use visual and manual methods such as x-rays, postural screenings and flexibility measurements to determine your mobility range, shape of your spine and body alignment. Once we have a starting point, we develop a chiropractic care program to treat scoliosis naturally.
Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine. Instead of curving front to back, a spine affected by scoliosis, curves side to side. The shape resembles the letter "S" and depending on the severity, may be interfering with mobility or causing back pain. You may be the first one to notice a misalignment in your child in the form of one shoulder lower than the other or their head tipping to one side. A person with scoliosis may also experience headaches, back pain, breathing or digestive concerns if the curve interferes with internal organs. If scoliosis is left untreated, the curve may continue to grow and cause greater challenges with the digestive, respiratory and circulatory system. Effective treatment is available through chiropractic care to eliminate future concerns, provide pain relief and re-establish a healthy spine.
If you suspect scoliosis in yourself or a family member, you can be mindful of a few signs:
Our chiropractors evaluate these symptoms to determine if they are associated with scoliosis. Then, our health teams provide options for improvement.
Chiropractic adjustments to the spine are an effective, gentle and natural treatment for scoliosis. Our chiropractors gently move the vertebrae so the spine resembles a healthier curve. This process is gradual and over time, the muscles, vertebrae and tendons will learn to remain in a straighter position. Our chiropractors continuously evaluate the spinal position to determine the progress and make adjustments to treatments as needed. Early treatment and adjustments are most effective to eliminate future concerns and we have had success in reducing the need for surgery or back braces through chiropractic care. Our services are natural, drug-free and provide successful care for scoliosis. We welcome those living in Spring Hill and Hudson to visit Family Chiropractic Center for Wellness for all your health needs. Our two convenient locations make it easy to get to appointments and begin your scoliosis treatment today. To schedule your appointment in Spring Hill, call us at 352-340-5936.
