How to Identify and Treat Scoliosis | Pediatric Chiropractor in Lubbock, TX

Hello, I’m Dr. Greg Marin, coming to you from 1-Spine Chiropractic. Today, we’re addressing a crucial topic that affects many individuals: scoliosis. Our focus is on the importance of early detection and the specialized treatment options we offer for scoliosis patients at our clinic.

The Importance of Early Detection

Scoliosis, a condition characterized by abnormal curvatures of the spine, benefits greatly from early identification and treatment. For this reason, we actively collaborate with local schools, a partnership that has spanned 10 to 15 years, to conduct scoliosis screenings. Early detection is key to managing scoliosis effectively and improving patient outcomes.

Conducting Scoliosis Screenings

Our screenings involve a simple but effective procedure known as the Adam’s Test. This test helps us identify any abnormal S-shaped or C-shaped curves in the spine. For demonstration, let’s take Grant, who will serve as our model today. We ask Grant to bend forward and touch his toes, a position that allows us to observe for any irregularities, such as rib humps, which can indicate the presence of scoliosis.

The Impact of Modern Lifestyle on Posture

In addition to screening for scoliosis, we also assess posture, particularly given the prevalence of electronic device usage among the younger generation. This lifestyle can lead to postural issues like hyperkyphosis, also known as rounded back, or “text neck,” where the neck protrudes forward due to prolonged device use. Identifying these issues early allows us to recommend appropriate treatments and lifestyle adjustments to mitigate their impact.

Demonstrating Chiropractic Adjustment for Scoliosis

Our approach to treating scoliosis includes chiropractic adjustments, tailored specifically to address and correct the spinal curvatures associated with the condition. Today, we’ll show how an adjustment can benefit those with scoliosis. Let’s have Grant face the camera and demonstrate.

Scoliosis is a complex condition, but with early detection and the right treatment approach, many individuals can lead healthier, more comfortable lives.
