Treating Scoliosis Naturally Using The Schroth Method
Your child needs surgery. The thoughts that roll through the mind when you hear these words are enough to raise anyone’s blood pressure. Especially when it involves something as major as a surgical procedure on the spine of your precious little one. The idea of surgery even for yourself as an adult is just plain scary, isn’t it? Before you run off and put yourself or your child under the knife for scoliosis treatment, there’s some information we want you to consider.
First, you’re not alone. At least take a little comfort in that. Scoliosis is a common problem. In fact it’s common enough that at least 7 million people in the U.S. are affected by this complex condition. When we talk about scoliosis, we are referring to a spinal condition where the spine is actually curved either in an “S” shape or a backwards “C” shape. Really, it can occur anywhere on the spine but it doesn’t just affect the spine, and that’s a problem.
It’s intense enough that if the curvature of the spine is left alone and becomes too severe, then the only scoliosis treatment many are left with is an expensive surgery. No thanks!
Effects of Scoliosis
- Difficulty Breathing
If the spine and rib cage are out of alignment– and in extreme cases press against the heart or lungs– it could cause damage and a struggle to breathe
- Back Problems
Chronic back pain is a major side effect of having scoliosis
- Unusual Appearance
If scoliosis is not treated and the spine continues to degenerate and worsen, the body will begin transforming with uneven hips and shoulders, ribs sticking out, and almost a side-ways walk
Not only does having a crooked spine put physical stress on your entire body, but emotional stress is also a factor due to insecurity about the appearance
These affects don’t have to be your life, and we know that no one scoliosis treatment is created equal. That’s why we want to break down the difference between what we do in our schroth method vs. what a spinal fusion surgical operation would look like in treating scoliosis.
