The health staff at Premier Family Chiropractic and Dr. Quinn Uzelman, welcome residents of Brentwood and Franklin TN to discover our healing services for scoliosis. Our chiropractor uses gentle, yet effective treatments to reposition a spine affected by scoliosis so that your symptoms are alleviated. If you or a family member are struggling with the discomfort of scoliosis, we encourage you to contact us soon. The sooner we begin treatment, especially in a child or teenager, the less likely the scoliosis symptoms will last and our treatments have a greater impact on the spine’s shape.
Scoliosis Symptoms in Franklin TN
Scoliosis is an abnormal curving spine. A healthy spine curves slightly between the front and back of your body. In contrast, a scoliosis spine curves between the right and left sides of your body. It resembles the shape of a capital letter “S” and the greater the curve, the more pronounced the condition. When left untreated, a curved spine can cause many disturbances in the body in the way of nerve and circulation flow. As a result, symptoms that you may experience include:
- Blurred vision
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Hip pain
- Breathing difficulties
- Unbalanced shoulders and hips
When Dr. Uzelman evaluates the shape of your spine, he determines if chiropractic care is a valid solution for your condition. In many cases, a chiropractic care plan effectively reshapes the spine to lessen your discomfort. If left untreated, the curves may continue to progress and begin to interfere with your heart and other organs. Since the spine causes muscles to counter-balance, you may also feel muscle weakness, tightness or strain as your body adjusts to the changing spine.
Dr. Uzelman uses chiropractic adjustments to position the vertebrae into a healthier alignment. This does not happen with one visit. Your spine will learn to adapt to a straighter position, but it takes consistent treatments, at-home exercises and posture correction. Our health team will teach you exercises to support a straight posture and we also show you better ways to sit, stand and arrange your desk to reduce the spinal curvatures. Spinal manipulations are an effective treatment option for scoliosis and should be considered before surgery. Our non-invasive techniques work with your body’s natural ability to heal, therefore your side effects are limited.
