How Chiropractic Helps with Scoliosis

San Diego, CA Scoliosis Treatment

San Diego, CA scoliosis treatmentScoliosis involves having an abnormal "C" or "S" curvature of the spine (sometimes noticeable and sometimes not), and 1 out of every 100 people in San Diego, CA are diagnosed with the problem. Dr. Michael Ackerman has helped many patients with scoliosis.

While treatment often involves wearing some type of brace, especially in more advanced cases or stages of scoliosis, chiropractic is another effective option. And its benefits tend to be long-term.

Studies show that engaging in regular chiropractic offers patients with scoliosis benefits not only immediately after treatment, but for up to two years post-treatment or more. These benefits include less of a curvature, reduced pain, and lower levels of disability related to the curvature of the spine. Add these together and this makes chiropractic a great treatment remedy both short and long-term.

Although no one really knows the cause of scoliosis, chiropractic can definitely be part of the solution. If you live near our San Diego, CA office, give Dr. Michael Ackerman a call today at (619) 687-7676 for an appointment.
