How Scoliosis Bracing Helps Treat Scoliosis
Scolioisis bracing is one of many different treatment options. But what is scoliosis? Scoliosis is a medical condition that causes a visible curvature in the spine of people, mostly children and adolescents. Most cases of scoliosis are mild however in some cases, the condition becomes severe and worsens as the person grows. Scoliosis affects about 2% females and 0.5% males.
Types of Scoliosis:
There are three main types of Scoliosis. They are functional, neuromuscular and degenerative scoliosis.
1. Functional Scoliosis:
This is situation where an abnormal curve develops in the spine because of problems in another part of the body. This could arise from deformities in the leg or from the occurrence of muscle spams in the back.
2. Neuromuscular Scoliosis:
This form of scoliosis occurs when the bones of the spine are formed. This condition may arise if there is an incomplete formation of the bones of the spine or there is an incomplete separation of the bones from each other during fetal development.
3. Degenerative Scoliosis:
This is a form of Scoliosis that is commonly found in adults. This is caused by changes in the spine due to arthritis and the weakening of the ligaments and soft tissues of the spine.
Regardless of what type of scoliosis you have you want the help of one of our doctors.

Symptoms of Scoliosis:
One of the symptoms of scoliosis is that the head appears off the center of the body. Another symptom of the condition is that the ribs in the rib cage would be disjointed. This means that the ribs would not be aligned as it is supposed to be. Scoliosis may also lead to the non-alignment of the hips. Clothes not hanging properly on the body is another symptom of scoliosis. Scoliosis can also result in unbalanced shoulders. Moreover, people suffering from scoliosis have a tendency to lean sideways when they stand or when they are walking. Scoliosis may also result in uneven leg lengths. But if you’ve been diagnosed with scoliosis, what then?
Then your scoliosis chiropractor should go over treatment options with you, one of which is scoliosis bracing.
A scoliosis brace is a way of halting a spinal curvature and beginning to reverse it. There is no cure for scoliosis, there are only treatment options such as observation, surgery, or scoliosis bracing.
