Scoliosis is a medical condition in which a person’s spine is curved from side to side. The spine of an individual with scoliosis may look more like an “S” or a “C” than a straight line.

Our chiropractors have been trained to check for the curvature of the spine that indicates scoliosis. Scoliosis is not a condition that will correct itself. If scoliosis is not treated, it will gradually worsen over time and can lead to any of the following problems: headaches, loss of balance or coordination, constant stiffness, neck and/or back pain, nerve related issues and visual abnormal curves of the sign.
