Dr. Mark Glynn is a chiropractic physician from The Pain to Health Center in Naperville who has treated many scoliosis patients with great results. Dr. Glynn has provided some valuable information for you to consider on the topic of scoliosis treatment. Scoliosis is a condition of the spine whereby the normal spinal alignment is lost. The typical straight up and down alignment of the spine when looking from front to back shifts to that of one that looks like a big “S” or that of a “C”.
These two patterns of scoliosis are most common. Unfortunately many who have scoliosis are not aware of the disorder until symptoms appear or they undergo an evaluation that uncovers the condition. Most cases of scoliosis have an idiopathic or unknown cause. Some are caused vertebra in the spine that are malformed.
