Scoliosis and Osteopathy

DO YOU HAVE A SCOLIOSIS OR SOMEONE WHO DOES?

Saturday 24th June is scoliosis awareness day and we are offering a FREE postural assessment and FREE advice with no obligation for treatment.

WHAT IS SCOLIOSIS?
Scoliosis is a sideway curvature in the spine. There are two types of scoliosis:

Functional scoliosis can develop as a result of our everyday lives (lifting or carrying heavy things, sitting at your desk, poor posture, following a trauma…) which can be resolved.
Structural scoliosis is a spinal deformity which usually starts in children to early teens before puberty which is usually manageable.

HOW DOES SCOLIOSIS AFFECT YOUR BODY?
Not all scoliosis sufferers experience pain or problems, but sometimes it can be debilitating on a daily basis, restrict physical activities and can lead to reduced lung capacity, extra pressure on the heart and severe back problems.

HOW CAN OSTEOPATHY HELP?
Treatment of Scoliosis depends on the severity of the curvature and the type of scoliosis. Functional scoliosis are common and can usually be resolved with treatment. When it comes to structural scoliosis, Osteopathy can help by gently increasing the range of movement the thoracic, lumbar spine and to keep all the joints mobile. Mobilisation of the pelvis is also important to help regaining a better symmetry in leg length which will help optimal function of the hips, lower and upper back which can reduced pain. Osteopathic techniques can also help with open up the chest and rib cage area to allow scoliosis sufferers to breath better due to the “hunch” over posture around the thoracic area.

Despite never being able to correct structural scoliosis completely, you can also manage the symptoms at home with some simple exercises.
