Scoliosis in Children

A scoliosis is a curvature of the spine from side to side, usually occurring during puberty. It is very important to have your child screened for scoliosis in middle school. It is found mostly in girls and has a genetic dissolution.Girls seem to develop between the ages of 9-10 yrs old while boys seem to be later between the ages of 10-12 yrs old. A simple painless exam is performed to determine if a scoliosis is present. If a scoliosis is thought to be found, an x-ray should be taken to confirm and measure the degree of curvature. Simple chiropractic adjustments can help correct the scoliosis. If the scoliosis is too severe then bracing may be needed.

I LOVE Regional Chiropractic Center! The people here are so wonderful and welcoming EVERY time I go in. Everyone here has truly gone above and beyond to help me. I am pretty sure it is one of my baby girl's favorite places to go with me considering how they spoil her :) Dr. Ladd is the best, as well as the rest of the staff. Highly recommend! - Haylee
