How To Treat Scoliosis in Singapore

Scoliosis is a condition that afflicts approximately 5 to 7 million Persons. Scoliosis is a disorder in which the spine curves sideways. It is sometimes exacerbated by lordosis (curving of the spine inward) or kyphosis (curving of the spine outward.) 

Scoliosis can be categorized by the three different ways it is caused: a) congenital, b) neuromuscular, and c) idiopathic, or of unknown cause. Scientists believe in the inheritability of scoliosis; however, the precise genetics of it still remains to be determined.

The most commonly observed form of scoliosis is adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. Girls have a greater propensity than boys toward the severity of the condition.

Sometimes the spine itself is normal, but the curvature develops in response to a functional problem elsewhere in the body. This could be caused by muscle spasms in the back, a difference in leg lengths, or even poor posture. 

In neuromuscular scoliosis, the spinal curvature is caused by muscle weakness or very poor muscle control resulting directly from diseases such as cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, Marfan's disease, or polio. Thus, scoliosis affects individuals to varying degrees, on a case-by-case basis. 

Chiropractic care can help in treating those with a milder form of functional scoliosis. Scoliosis has not only physical ramifications but emotional ones as well. In particular, teenagers with scoliosis will need additional emotional support and guidance during this crucial growth period. Sometimes the scoliosis is so severe that the rib cage presses against the heart and lungs.
