Mitigate Pain and Improve Mobility
When seeking scoliosis treatment, we offer an excellent option for non-invasive care.
For scoliosis treatment, Comfort residents can trust Hill Country Physical Medicine. Scoliosis is a condition that affects spinal alignment, causing the spine to curve abnormally and appear as an “S” shape when viewed from the back, instead of the normal straight line. Affecting approximately 2%-3% of American teenagers, scoliosis is typically found during a school screening. Because of its abnormal spinal alignment, this condition creates muscle strain and off-center vertebrae, which can affect surrounding nerves, cause pain, and limit the patient’s range of movement.
Treatment of scoliosis usually involves a brace, with surgery only rarely recommended. There are a variety of causes of scoliosis, including bone abnormality at birth (congenital scoliosis), muscle or nerve abnormality (neuromuscular scoliosis), and injury, trauma, illness, or surgery (degenerative scoliosis). In about 80% of all scoliosis cases, there is no identifiable cause, leading to a diagnosis of idiopathic scoliosis.
In Comfort and Boerne, scoliosis professionals at Hill Country Physical Medicine embrace an integrated approach to wellness. Natural, non-invasive therapies like chiropractic, massage, and physical therapy are implemented, rather than medicinal or surgical options, providing scoliosis treatment that emphasizes optimal posture and spinal alignment, to improve alleviate the patient’s pain and improve mobility through natural, rehabilitative therapies. If you’re seeking treatment for scoliosis, call Hill Country Physical Medicine to see how we can help.
