Here in the Denver Integrated Spine Center we see a wide variety of patients, scoliosis being one of them. Scoliosis is usually a progressive type of symptomatology as people get older. Here we see older people. We see younger people. In older people basic chiropractic and physical therapy can be a little limited in its overall help in scoliosis but what it can really do it can really lower the pain level down for them, help everybody get through their normal daily activities and basically enjoy life more.
Where we can really make an effect is basically when someone much younger in adolescence comes in and hasn’t gone through their full growth spurt. In that case basically what we will do, one of the techniques we use here is what’s called chiropractic biophysics. It’s the most research based and backed literature that’s out there on actually changing curves as people grow. We want to make sure we institute that properly before they go through their growth spurt or while they go through that so then the bodies can actually develop properly, enable the individual to not be affected near as much as they get older.
