Scoliosis Treatment – Proven Safe & Effective
Chiropractic and Massage Therapy in Elkins, WV
If your child has been diagnosed with scoliosis, it is important to take the necessary steps to correct or halt progression of this condition. Although many doctors take a “wait and see” approach, this can be a dangerous gamble that may ultimately result in bracing – or even invasive surgery. After your doctor has ruled out tumors and other conditions that may require immediate correction, we can begin treatment right away. Chiropractic is a safe and proven effective therapeutic method of treating many types of abnormal spine curvature.
What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is an abnormal lateral curvature of the spine. The condition can be progressive and may result in muscle weakness, numbness, pain, and abnormal reflexes when treatment is not instituted in a timely manner. Diagnosis can be made via x-ray and corrective treatment can (and should) begin right away if there are no mitigating factors. At Collett Family Chiropractic, our skilled chiropractor offers safe and effective pain control and therapeutic adjustments for patients of all ages who are dealing with scoliosis and related conditions.
