Scoliosis typically begins as a minor bend in the spine that gradually progresses over time. Common symptoms include widespread pain throughout the spine, but a child might also complain about pain when exercising. Children are often checked by a PE teacher, so if your child’s school suggests that you make an appointment with a physician, it’s important to take it seriously.
If the spine curves more than ten degrees to the right or left when a patient is facing the examiner, a diagnosis of scoliosis is made. Once the spine has advanced to more extreme stages of scoliosis, there can be severe health consequences. The good news is that if a bending of the spine is discovered early on, and chiropractic care from Glowaki Chiropractic is received, it can be prevented from advancing to a debilitating state.
