Suffering from Scoliosis in Delray Beach FL?

scoliosis care is helped by with chiropractic care

Are you or a loved one looking for non-surgical treatments for scoliosis? Thankfully, if the initial curvature is cared for proactively, the chiropractors in Delray Beach FL are able to keep it from developing scoliosis. An estimated 6-9 million people in the United States are affected by scoliosis, or a sideways curvature of the spine.


Scoliosis is characterized by a curvature of the spine which most often presents itself right before puberty. In extreme cases, scoliosis can cause spine deformities, or even become disabling as a result of spine curvature.

Because it reduces the amount of space within the chest, scoliosis can almost make it difficult for the lungs to function properly.

You may have scoliosis if you have:

  • Uneven shoulders
  • Uneven waist
  • Uneven hips

Scoliosis can worsen if left untreated, causing it to rotate or twist.This can cause the ribs to appear uneven. Although the cause of scoliosis isn’t currently known, many believe it to be the result of heredity factors in some cases.

Rarer cases of scoliosis may be caused by:

  • Neuromuscular conditions
  • Birth Defects
  • Injuries to the spine

Scoliosis Complications

Because scoliosis can cause spine deformities, pressure on the lungs, and reduce the amount of space in the chest, it can result in some unfortunate complications.

These can include:

  • Damage to the lungs and heart
  • Back problems
  • Self-consciousness about appearance

Of course, these complications are usually only ever present in people who suffer from severe scoliosis. Most people will only experience minor problems, as scoliosis is usually mild.


Dr. Schrier starts by performing a physical examination, consulting with you about your condition, and collecting your medical history. He may order an X-ray to confirm the diagnosis of scoliosis and to assess the severity of the spinal curvature.

In case Dr. Schrier suspects some other condition may be causing your scoliosis, such as a tumor, he may also order an imaging test, such as an MRI. By doing a series of spinal adjustments, Dr. Schrier can begin work to realign the musculoskeletal system.

This chiropractic manipulation will not only help your scoliosis, but it can also make you feel more relaxed, and less stressed throughout the day. Dr. Schrier may also suggest you take a regimen of dietary supplements to give the body what it needs to heal.
