I know that a chiropractor once tried to tell me I had scoliosis. It was a few years ago and I found it odd since I have used acupuncture treatment for scoliosis back pain with many patients and knew I didn’t have it. Occasionally a client shares someone told them they’re back pain is caused by a curved spine. Their spine seemed fine. The truth be told we all have a slight bend in our spine.
Curvature Of The Spine
There are many names for Scoliosis another being curvature of the spine. In most people it is not a problem. For some though it can mean death or end their ability to walk. Usually it starts in childhood. Some adults develop Scoliosis due to sports or their career too.
That’s the problem; it doesn’t always start in childhood, and we all have curve to our spine especially by the time you hit your 40’s. It’s usually due to bending or being active. This is my case normal wear n’ tear. Not everyone is so lucky scoliosis is a serious problem. It often evolves surgeries to fix the problem.
In all this time, 22 years I have been honored to help some of the nicest people with back pain of curvature of the spine and yes true scoliosis cases. I am blessed to have this wonderful patient who wanted to share her remarkable story of growing up a child with scoliosis and surgeries to stand strong and tall.
Can You Still Enjoy Normal Things If You Have Scoliosis?
Scoliosis doesn’t have to slow you down. It doesn’t have to end your ability to enjoy things like walking, hiking, or riding a bicycle. With natural medicine like acupuncture you can reduce pain and increase flexibility. Even general back pain from muscle tightness or disc problems benefit from acupuncture.
I look forward to hearing from you and finding out more about your story and how acupuncture can help your curvature of the spine or other back pain.
