Scoliosis describes a sideways curvature of your spine. This condition typically develops in childhood just before you reach puberty and can continue to get worse over time.
There’s no clear understanding of what exactly causes scoliosis, but your risk for the condition may be higher if you have a family history of scoliosis or if you have underlying neuromuscular conditions, like cerebral palsy.
Without proper treatment, scoliosis can become severe and even debilitating. A severe curve in the spine can also affect the function of your lungs.
A hallmark symptom of scoliosis is a visible curvature in your spine. In some children, you may also notice an uneven waist and uneven shoulders.
Children may also have one hip that’s higher than the other or a shoulder blade that’s more prominent than the other.
If left untreated, severe scoliosis can cause a twisting of the spine that forces one side of the ribs to stick out farther than the other.
As a skilled chiropractor, Dr. Marinaro has extensive experience in treating painful spine conditions. He can customize a treatment plan using manual and mechanical manipulations to improve spinal alignment and prevent a worsening of the curve in both children and adults.
Dr. Marinaro also uses chiropractic care in conjunction with rehabilitative exercises and stretches to improve the strength of your core muscles and promote good posture.
To relieve muscle tension and spasms that can also result from scoliosis, you may benefit from the on-site acupuncture and massage therapy services available at Pain Relief Center LA.
If you or your child is living with pain from scoliosis that makes it difficult to travel to the office, Dr. Marinaro can bring chiropractic care directly to your home. Through his mobile, concierge-style chiropractic services, he ensures you receive the consistent, regular treatment you need to protect and preserve your spine health.
