Treatment For Scoliosis in Singapore

Scoliosis is a condition that affects about 5 to 7 million people. Scoliosis is a condition in which the spine bends to the side. It is sometimes exacerbated by lordosis (inward curvature of the spine) or kyphosis (outward curvature of the spine).

Scoliosis can be classified into three different causes: a) congenital, b) neuromuscular, and c) idiopathic or of unknown cause. Scientists believe scoliosis is inherited; However, the exact genetics have not been determined.

The most common form of scoliosis is juvenile idiopathic scoliosis. Girls are more prone to the severity of the condition than boys.

Sometimes the spine itself is normal, but distortion develops in response to functional problems elsewhere in the body. This can be caused by muscle spasms in the back, improper leg length, or even poor posture.

In neuromuscular scoliosis, the curvature of the spine is caused by muscle weakness or very poor muscle control that results directly from diseases such as cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, Marfan's disease, or polio. Therefore, scoliosis affects individuals to varying degrees from case to case.

Chiropractic care can help treat those with milder forms of functional scoliosis. Scoliosis has not only physical but also psychological consequences. Adolescents with scoliosis, in particular, need extra emotional support and guidance during this important period of growth. Sometimes scoliosis is so severe that the chest presses on the heart and lungs.
