New Solutions To Scoliosis in Kingston
If we look at the spine from the front, it should look like a straight line, but in several cases, it isn't due to disease, trauma, or other condition, which leads to an abnormal sideways curvature called Scoliosis.
Scoliosis symptoms vary depending on the severity and the site; severe scoliosis can lead to many problems, including back pain, muscle spasm, neurological, leaning to one side, affecting the biomechanics of the spine and the quality of life. Besides, it can have emotional and social effects on the individual. It may intervene with sports, activities, particular events, and even simple things like playing with their children.
Scoliosis in Kingston can develop due to neurologic, muscular, congenital bone anomalies, developmental issues, or trauma; however, most cases occur without an apparent reason, which is called Idiopathic Scoliosis. The most aggressive milestones in scoliosis development happen in adolescents and adults over 40 years old.
A less than 20° curve is classified as mild and typically left without intervention, but healthcare providers usually recommend keeping an eye on it. A 20°- 40° a curve is moderate, and usually, they suggested to wear a brace. And when it's over 40°, the scoliosis is considered severe and usually requires surgery.

What do we do differently at Kingston Crossing in Kingston? We utilize a number of methods that potentially slow down the development of scoliosis and even stop it in some cases: chiropractic care helps with mobilizing the joints to maintain a better posture, biomechanics, and connection between the brain and the rest of the body. Acupuncture and massage therapy can loosen tight muscles and increase blood flow. Postural exercises to stabilize the core and spinal decompression reduce the pressure on the discs in some cases.
