Expert scoliosis care in Newcastle
If you suspect a scoliosis or your child has just been diagnosed, it can be a stressful time. It is important that you are informed.
The earlier a scoliosis is detected the more treatment options you have. At Family Life Chiropractic, we have a special interest in scoliosis and can provide expert care and advice.
Our Expert Approach
If a scoliosis is evident, then regular monitoring is strongly recommended. A curvature can progress quickly during the growing years in children. During our thorough approach we will listen to your concerns and take note of what you have observed. We take a medical history and complete physical assessment of the spine. We will measure the degree of curve in the spine and ascertain the likelihood of progression. Imaging may be required, depending on the findings.
At Family Life Chiropractic, we will take the time to sit and explain all findings. The best treatment path depends on several factors, such as the age, developmental maturity, angle of the curves and any personal sporting aspirations etc. Postural issues can sometimes be confused with a scoliosis. It’s important that the type of curve is identified so the best treatment path can be advised.
Depending on several factors, including the angle of the curve we may suggest a multi-disciplinary approach to achieve the best outcomes. We therefore have a network of health professionals at our finger tips to offer various treatment options. If scoliosis is left untreated it may require surgery.
Our special interest and experience with curves of the spine has led to further training and study in this area. If you have noticed a change in your child’s spine or have a concern, please get in touch so we can provide you with some expert advice.
