A Dr. Who truly has her patients best interest…
Scoliosis Treatment in Newark NJ: Do you or your child suffer from scoliosis? Typically, scoliosis begins as a minor bend in the spine that gradually progresses over a lifetime. A diagnosis of scoliosis is made when the spine curves more than ten degrees to the right or left when a patient is facing the examiner. Once the spine has advanced to more extreme stages of scoliosis there can be severe health consequences.
The good news is that if the bending of the spine is discovered early on and Chiropractic care is received, it can be prevented from advancing to a debilitating state.
Consequences of Scoliosis
I left unchecked, scoliosis can lead to long term, severe consequences. Re-occurring injuries are often a result of scoliosis and sciatica has been commonly linked to the condition. In the most severe cases, scoliosis can lead to diminished heart and lung capacity, painful menstruation and physical disability.
A physical examination performed by Dr. Elain Asyah Aquil will assess the curvature of the spin. An Adams Position Test, which requires the patient to bend forward as far as possible, can indicate whether an issue is present or not.
Dr. Aquil is trained to complete a thorough examination that will determine the presence of scoliosis. Once the issue is identified, Dr. Aquil will perform a full health history to identify any factors that could be contributing to the presence of scoliosis. This assessment helps to determine the appropriate treatment for the particular case.
Dr. Aquil will likely perform specific spinal adjustments to reverse the body’s compensations and assist in the restoration process. If you are looking for a safe, non-invasive approach to treating scoliosis, chiropractic medicine has your back.
