San Diego Scoliosis Care
*Effective Scoliosis care starts with early diagnosis. Scoliosis is a sideways curve of the spine. Unfortunately, it is often misdiagnosed as "poor posture" or overlooked as an unimportant cosmetic issue that patients are ineffectively told to wait, watch, and "see what happens". At Action Sports Chiropractic, we are commited to helping you and your family navigate through the confusion and discomfort that often arises with developing spinal curvatures.
* Research has shown that early identification followed by proactive, appropriate treatments such as chiropractic care, specialized exercises, and bracing can help to decrease progression of spinal rotation and curvature and reduce the chronic pain and spinal deformity that can follow if left untreated.
* Many people believe scoliosis is a condition which affects only teenage girls. Scoliosis, in fact, affects much more than the widely reported 2-4% of the adolescent population. Significant proportions of infants and children are affected and an estimated 38% of adults aged between 40 and 90 years*
* If you or a loved one has Scoliosis, there is Hope. New non-surgical scoliosis treatment approaches by ScoliBrace are now available in the United States, and we are proud to be a part of their growing organization of providers. This new method of bracing has proven to be effective in stopping progression and preventing surgery. Bulky braces and surgery are not the only options any more, so early detection can be acted on with effective early interventions such as specific exercise programs and custom 3D braces.
