When teens and younger children develop scoliosis, it’s common for them to experience pain in their backs, necks, hips or legs in addition to other symptoms like changes in posture. Everyone experiences scoliosis differently, but even mild cases can reduce the ability to live a full and pain-free life. As a CLEAR-certified chiropractor, Dr. J. Hartley knows that scoliosis pain relief is an important part of treatment, whether you're suffering from scoliosis neck pain or discomfort in the lower back.
Following the CLEAR treatment method, scoliosis treatment with Dr. Hartley includes:
This approach offers scoliosis pain relief by addressing some of the main causes of pain: overworked or imbalanced muscles that are working hard to correct the curve on their own. By addressing scoliosis pain management with a chiropractor like Dr. Hartley, you’ll get the benefit of a personalized treatment plan that’s specific to your spine.
His approach uses gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments combined with exercises to keep adjustments in place. Treatments also activate specific muscle groups along the spine, as well as specific areas of the brain, to change how the brain and the body work together and achieve a balanced, more natural and less painful position.
CLEAR scoliosis treatment offered by doctors like Dr. Hartley has been shown to improve the results of scoliosis surgery down the road should you decide on that treatment after exhausting other treatment options. While surgery can be considered necessary for severe cases, it’s usually not considered a medical emergency. As such, it should only be considered as a last resort.
If you’re interested in scoliosis pain relief with a highly trained chiropractor, Dr. Hartley would be happy to discuss the best approach for you or your child. He offers an Intensive Care Treatment Plan for patients traveling to the Hartley Chiropractic & Scoliosis Center in Florida, where scoliosis treatment is provided twice daily over a span of one or two weeks. He’ll then customize a home rehabilitation program that must be done daily for the best results.
