     Don’t think that curvature of the spine, or scoliosis, is only present in those people who seem to have noticeably poor posture.  Even a faily severe scoliosis can go unnoticed unless examined by a trained eye.

     There are many causes for scoliosis.  However, most spinal curvatures are of unknown origin.  Fortunately, scoliosis can be corrected if caught early enough.  The Doctor of Chiropractic is a highly trained specialist who can diagnose and treat it effectively. 

     Your child should carry himself or herself erect with symmetry between hip and shoulder levels.  If you feel that your child shows hip or shoulder imbalances or a head tilt, consult your Doctor of Chiropractic.  Scoliosis worsens with age.  That’s why early detection and treatment are essential for the most effective results.

Diagnosis and treatment of all health conditions should only be performed by the doctor or other licensed health care professional.
