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 and your adolescent could face very expensive and invasive treatment.
No such thing as a quick fix
Anyone who tells you that treatment for scoliosis in teenagers can be just a few 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. Successful scoliosis treatment requires a comprehensive plan that includes brain function, mechanical, neuro-emotional, and 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, or just strengthening exercises. Teen scoliosis treatment and scoliosis prevention need to address root causes including how the brain tells the muscles of the spine what to do. The treatments are not limited to mechanical only, like: exercises, spinal adjustments, and stretching. To help a teen's spinal curvature you need a doctor with a comprehensive, multifactoral, 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. Nutrition is also a factor that plays a role in "idiopathic scoliosis." So our comprehensive, integrative chiropractic plan integrates all of these factors into our comprehensive non-invasive scoliosis treatment program.
Realistically, a good treatment outcome for scoliosis in teenagers is a reduction in the severity of the scoliosis (degrees), without the harm seen with scoliosis surgery solutions. But just as important, the main purpose of the treatment is first, to stop the progression of teenage scoliosis. As your teenager's condition gets more stable we will be able to see signs of better spinal segmental function. As your teenager's spine functions better, the scoliosis becomes less of a threat to your teenager's health.
