Scoliosis is an abnormal side to side curvature of the spine. Here at Dr. Samantha Stuart, DC, we provide holistic treatment options, including chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, corrective exercises and bracing, for children and adults with abnormal spinal curvatures in Portland, OR.
Diagnosing scoliosis involves a physical examination followed by x-rays to determine the severity of the curve. Non-invasive treatment options, like braces and manual adjustments, can be used to provide symptom relief and slow the progression of the curvature.
Severe scoliosis can put pressure on the nerves and soft tissues in your back, causing muscle weakness and numbness. Adults with abnormal back curvatures may be more prone to back injuries and pain than adults without abnormal spinal curvatures. Our chiropractor, serving Portland, Gresham, Clackamas, Happy Valley, Oregon City, Beaverton, and Tigard, OR, as well as Vancouver, WA, can monitor, evaluate and treat your abnormal spinal curvature.
Children, who have not yet stopped growing, benefit from custom braces. These braces are fitted to the child's body and worn during the day and night. The brace helps decrease the progression of the spinal curvature.
Chiropractic Adjustments for abnormal curvatures of the spine can help manage your symptoms and provide you with pain relief. Adjustments help keep the vertebrae mobile while reducing localized inflammation.
We may also recommend massage therapy and corrective exercises along with lifestyle advice. These treatment options can help lower your pain and reduce the impact that your abnormal spinal curvature has on your daily life.
To schedule an appointment with our chiropractor, serving Oregon City and Tigard as well as Vancouver, call us at 503-252-3560. We are located at 11657 Northeast Glisan Street. When you call, ask about our new client special. We are currently offering new clients one 60 minute massage for $50.
