Detection of Scoliosis – Spinal Care for Children is a Must

Research from one of the most well-respected medical journals in the world explains that when a spine is not moving correctly, a cascade of pathways are triggered in the spinal cord and nervous system.

This alteration in the spine and nerve pathways, known as vertebral subluxation, predisposes a child or adult to a plethora of visceral chronic diseases as well as the progressive condition called Scoliosis.

Scoliosis is a condition where the spine becomes increasingly curved and deformed. Scoliosis is very dangerous to organ function as it progresses.

Contrary to popular knowledge and belief, the cause of scoliosis relates more to nervous system dysfunction than genetics, physical traumas, or deformity.

A 2000 research review published in the Spine Journal titled “Etiology of Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis.” showed that any subtle changes to the health of the spine puts stress into the nervous system and sets the stage for scoliotic curves to be formed.

The biggest obstacle in preventing or treating scoliosis is detection.

Scoliosis progresses with an absence of symptoms, and by the time conditions present, the young person is already suffering.

Vertebral subluxations are not rare and can even be found among infants who endured the trauma of childbirth.

Subluxation interferes with the nervous system but is very detectable and correctable by a Chiropractor.

Children going back to school should serve as an annual reminder for families to have a spinal check-up by a Chiropractor.
