Does Scoliosis Ever Correct Itself? Can Scoliosis Be Reversed?

There are a number of spinal conditions that cause the development of unhealthy curves, but structural spinal conditions involve abnormalities within the spine itself, and this involves its vertebrae (bones). Continue reading to learn why scoliosis can’t simply correct itself, along with what progression means. As a progressive structural spinal condition, the...

What Are Bone Spurs In Neck? Can They Be Treated?

Bone spurs make affected bones larger than normal, and the excess space used by the bony overgrowth is taken from somewhere. If a bone spur forms on the spine, it can cause issues related to nerve compression, and where along the spine a bone spur is located will determine its effects. Continue reading to learn what effects are associated with bone spurs in the...

Spondylosis vs Spondylolysis: Differences & Treatment Options

There is a natural amount of spinal degeneration that typically accompanies aging, but certain conditions and/or injuries can make those changes more severe and/or occur at faster rates. The spine can develop a number of conditions/issues such as spondylosis and spondylolysis, and while these two terms sound similar, they are not; continue reading to understand the...

Inversion Therapy & Inversion Tables for Scoliosis

There are only three instances in life where one is not subject to gravity: in the womb, in water, and in space. Inversion tables simulate an anti-gravitational effect by holding the body upside down, opening up the space within the spine, taking pressure off of it, its individual structures, and its surrounding muscles and nerves. By holding the body upside down,...

Radiculopathy: Causes, Symptoms, Types, and Treatments

The spine along with the spinal cord and the nerves exiting between the spinal bones perform many essential functions: facilitating brain-body communication, allowing us to stand upright, practice healthy posture, and move flexibly. When the spinal nerves are exposed to uneven pressure, becoming irritated and/or damaged, they have less space to function within, and...

Each spinal section has a role to play in maintaining overall spinal health and function; the cervical spine has the added responsibility of supporting the head and acting as the bridge between the brain and the rest of the body. Continue reading to learn more about the cervical spine’s natural/healthy...

Dowager's Hump: What It Is, Diagnosis, and Treatment Options

Each of the spine’s main sections has its own unique curvature type, and while these curvature types have a healthy range, when a curvature degree falls beyond a normal range, becoming excessive, problems can occur. Formerly known as dowager’s hump, hyperkyphosis involves the spine’s natural backward-bending curve becoming excessive, which can cause a roundback...

Treatment For Bulging Disc: Learn About Bulging Disc Treatment

The overall health of the spine depends on the health of its individual structures, like its intervertebral discs. In order for the spine to maintain its natural curves, alignment, and flexibility, the discs have to be functioning optimally. When a disc is bulging, it can affect the spine, its nerves within, and its surroundings. A healthy spine consists of...
