Non-Invasive Scoliosis Treatment for Teenagers or Adults
In Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, teen scoliosis treatment, or adult scoliosis treatment requires an intelligent, non-invasive, non-surgical treatment approach. Too many scoliosis doctors recommend forceful, or outright invasive scoliosis treatment, when non-invasive scoliosis treatment should be recommended first. Your best first choice for a scoliosis doctor is an integrative chiropractor. Otherwise, you or your adolescent could face very expensive and invasive treatment.
Do You Believe Scoliosis has a Quick Fix?
Anyone who tells you that treatment for scoliosis in teenagers can be just a few daily exercises or stretches is not giving you an expert opinion. A good scoliosis doctor in Los Angeles will not use an overly simplistic one-cause/one-cure methodology. It's not a quick fix. Successful scoliosis treatment requires a comprehensive plan that includes all the factors contributing to scoliosis in the first place such as: brain function, spinal mechanics, the neuro-emotional, and the environmental/biochemical/clinical nutrition aspects. This care is best given by an integrative chiropractor.
Scoliosis Doctor's Expert Opinion:
Scoliosis (spinal curvature)
is NOT just a mechanical condition. It's not just a misalignment that needs stretching. Scoliosis is not corrected by strengthening exercises alone. Teen scoliosis treatment and scoliosis prevention need to address root neurological causes including how the brain is telling the muscles of the spine what to do. The treatments are not limited only to mechanical factors, like: exercises, spinal adjustments, and stretching. Stopping pain from scoliosis does not require full correction of the curvature. You just need a doctor who uses a comprehensive, multifactorial, neurological, chiropractic model of care.
The founder of chiropractic, Dr. D.D. Palmer, said that subluxations of the vertebrae (which may be translated as spinal malfunction and nerve dysfunction) are caused by three things: trauma (physical strain or injury), toxins (environmental factors, including diet), and stress (thoughts/emotions).
In the the category of excessive environmental toxins, recent research has found that gene expression (which is not unchangeable "genetic") can play a role in adolescent scoliosis development. This is due to epigenetics (things that influence our gene expression), which are influenced by our environmental surroundings. This is treatable. Clinical nutrition factors also play a role in "idiopathic scoliosis." So our comprehensive, integrative chiropractic plan integrates all of these factors into our comprehensive non-invasive scoliosis treatment program.
In teenagers, we want to stop the progression of teenage scoliosis. In adult scoliosis, it is more about finding the specific keys to re-balancing, to reduce and eliminate the roots of the symptoms. As your condition, or your teenager's condition gets more stable we will be able to see signs of better spinal segmental function. As you or your teenager's spine functions better, the scoliosis becomes less of a threat to future health problems.
