San Diego Scoliosis Care & ScoliBrace Treatment
*Effective Scoliosis care starts with early diagnosis. Scoliosis is a sideways and spiral curveature 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 don't believe this is acceptable. Why wait until levels of pain and deformity are so bad that surgery is the only option? We are committed to helping you and your family navigate through the confusion and discomfort that often arises with developing spinal curvatures.
* 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 Dr. Hackett is proud to be a part of their growing organization of providers. Currently, she is the only ScoliCare provider in all of San Diego County. This new method of bracing has proven to be effective in stopping progression and preventing surgery in all ages. ScoliBraces are an innovative new form of "over-corrective brace"; a 3D, truly custom made brace that can be comfortably worn to assist juveniles, adolescents, and adult scoliosis cases!
* Improvement IS possible! Research has shown that early identification followed by proactive, appropriate treatments such as chiropractic care, specialized exercises, and the appropriate use of new, specialized bracing such as ScoliBrace and KyphoBrace can help not only to slow the progression of spinal rotation and curvature, but can help to reduce some curvatures, and decrease the chronic pain and spinal deformity that can follow if left untreated.
* Many people believe scoliosis is a condition which affects only teenage girls. This is simply not true. Scoliosis, in fact, affects much more than the widely reported 2-4% of the adolescent population. Significant proportions of infants and juvenile children are affected and an estimated 38% of adults aged between 40 and 90 years*
