Scoliosis Pain

Columbia Chiropractors Helps with Scoliosis Pain & Treatment Options

Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine when viewed from the back, often taking the shape of a C or an S, and typically developing during adolescence. Many individuals with this curvature were diagnosed in early adolescence by a school nurse or pediatrician but received no treatment aside from occasional monitoring by an orthopedic doctor. Our Columbia Chiropractors have firsthand experience with this situation. Chiropractic care can provide relief, and Compass Chiropractic & Wellness offers successful treatment for patients dealing with scoliosis-related pain and injuries.

Scoliosis in Childhood Can Lead to Pain in Adulthood—Chiropractic Care Offers Relief

During adolescence, when the spine is still growing and susceptible to significant developmental changes from injury or improper posture—such as consistently carrying a backpack over just one shoulder—the curvature of scoliosis may develop. In moderate to severe cases, orthopedists may recommend bracing or surgery to implant metal rods for straightening the spine. However, in milder cases, no treatment is typically offered, and the condition is only periodically monitored to prevent worsening. As the child grows into an adult, the abnormal curvature of the spine becomes more solidified, potentially leading to back pain even in mild cases.

It’s crucial for parents to understand how chiropractic care can aid in developing a healthy spinal curvature for their children, thereby avoiding problems in adulthood. While adolescents are still growing, regular chiropractic maintenance and lifestyle advice from our chiropractors can minimize or eliminate abnormal curvature, preventing issues later in life.

Adults experiencing scoliosis-related back pain can still find relief through chiropractic care. Our chiropractors, drawing from personal experience, understand this well—regular chiropractic treatment has significantly reduced their scoliosis-related back and neck pain. While the curvature of the spine cannot always be fully corrected in adult scoliosis cases, chiropractic adjustments can greatly alleviate the painful effects of pinched nerves. In some rare instances, regular spinal adjustments have even minimized the degree of scoliosis curvature in adult patients.
