June is National Scoliosis Awareness Month. Scoliosis is an abnormal spinal curvature affecting about 6 million people. Chiropractic minimizes the pain, increases your ability to be comfortably active and helps improve secondary effects of scoliosis.
The ideal way to address scoliosis is to catch and treat it early. Once your child reaches their preteen years, you should be checking their spine periodically. Look for one hip/shoulder that is higher and/or a “hump” on one side of the spine. Although school screening can help you identify scoliosis, many states have discontinued this program.
So be pro-active and ask me to check your child for scoliosis.
