Scoliosis Treatment in San Francisco, CA

What is Scoliosis, and What Are the Most Common Symptoms?

Scoliosis can be defined as a lateral abnormal curvature of the spine, affecting more than 2% of the United States population. Anyone can be diagnosed with scoliosis at any age; however, it’s most commonly diagnosed in children between 10 to 15 years of age, with more than 100,000 children in the United States diagnosed each year. While children and adolescents tend to be the focus, 30% of scoliosis is adult-onset. A staggering 90% of people will have scoliosis by 80 years old because of lack of treatment. No matter the age, understanding your scoliosis as soon as possible is the key to living a healthy life with scoliosis.

Some of the symptoms of scoliosis include:

  • Uneven shoulders.
  • Back and neck pain.
  • Sleep disturbances.
  • Disc herniation.
  • Protruding ribs on one side of the body.
  • Muscle straining.
  • Stiffness.
  • Numbness.

The Most Effective Scoliosis Treatment in San Francisco, CA

If scoliosis is detected and treated early, in many cases, patients can avoid symptoms such as poor posture, shoulder humping, muscle weakness, and pain. However, if left untreated, scoliosis can sometimes require surgery. In surgical cases, the bones of the spine are sometimes fused, and metal rods are inserted to try to straighten the spine. If identified early enough, advanced chiropractic and bracing are effective treatments for halting the progression of scoliosis curves and reducing the need for surgery.

Correcting Scoliosis with Chiropractic BioPhysics

PostureWorks provides state-of-the-art scoliosis rehabilitative care using Chiropractic BioPhysics, a highly advanced and deeply researched chiropractic technique that corrects and restores your spine to alignment by utilizing biology, physiology, physics, geometry, and anatomy to identify the causes of your pain, discomfort, loss of mobility, and altered health.

Each case of scoliosis is unique, and your treatment plan will begin with a comprehensive examination and x-rays to understand the underlying cause of your scoliosis.

The goals of our scoliosis assessment are to determine:

  • The current state of your scoliosis.
  • How much of the curve is correctable.
  • The best care options for your scoliosis.

Once we understand how to unwind your scoliosis, the next step is creating a care plan and helping you understand how to take care of your scoliosis now and in the future.

Each scoliosis care plan will include in-office and home versions of:

  • Corrective postural exercises
  • Spinal traction and elongation
  • Neuro-muscular reeducation

However, if you’re searching for effective, non-invasive scoliosis treatment in San Francisco, PostureWorks can also provide you with a custom-made 3D spinal brace called ScoliBrace.

For many adults, scoliosis can cause discomfort or pain while also affecting their physical appearance and ability to perform daily activities. While scoliosis may not cause extreme pain for many younger adults, it may affect posture and body cosmetics. It’s important to prevent further progression to avoid further impacts as they age.

ScoliBrace is an overcorrective brace that guides the spine into a posture that is opposite of the scoliosis shape. It is designed specifically for each case of scoliosis and each wearer with the goal of curvature reduction and improved appearance.

  • Versatile

    ScoliBrace can be used for adult scoliosis originating from pre-existing adolescent scoliosis or for the development of scoliosis in adulthood (de novo scoliosis).

  • Custom-Designed

    Using body scans, x-rays, and posture photos, each ScoliBrace is custom-designed and fitted to the patient to ensure a tailored treatment approach.

  • Easy to Wear

    ScoliBrace opens and closes at the front, making it easy to wear and remove without assistance. The adult ScoliBrace is low-profile and is nearly invisible under clothing.
