Scoliosis

Scoliosis is a condition whereby the spine deviates to the side, instead of straight up and down. It often casues pain and discomfort in the joints and muscles of the spine and ribs. What you don't know is scoliosis is often a genetic conditioin, meaning that is often runs in familes. It is also more common in females particularly during their pubescent growth spurt when it has an increased rise of getting worse. 

Although there is no cure for scoliosis we have had good success in treating the effects. Relief dfrom the pain and discomfort is possible. Muscles often have more pressure and joints are prone to dysfunction. 

At the Templestowe Family Chiro our goal is to help relieve the pain and discomfort while teaching you to strengthen and stabalise your spine. Early postural assessment and can help us identify if you or your children are at risk and appropriate management can be discussed.
