Having been diagnosed with scoliosis as a teenager, Dr. Long is very familiar with scoliosis (abnormal lateral curvature of the spine) and its effects on the body.
- If younger scoliosis patients are treated before their growth spurt, chiropractic can help diminish the abnormal curve and assist the spine in growing as straight as possible!
- For adults with scoliosis, adjustments can help to keep the spine flexible instead of building tension on the misaligned vertebrae
- Chiropractic treatments for your spine are like braces for your teeth
- You cannot expect change to happen overnight, but gradual correction helps the bones to align straighter
