Whether the result of an infant or childhood trauma, or a hereditary problem, scoliosis is the sideways curving of the spine, resulting in uneven shoulders, distorted hips and even severe pain as the condition worsens. Scoliosis affects boys and, more frequently, girls between the ages of 8-18.
A thorough examination helps detect scoliosis in its early stages so corrective action can begin at once. A program of specific chiropractic adjustments helps improve the function and structure of the spine, strengthens muscles and improves posture.
Dr. Korchok’s approach is to use safe, specialized adjustment techniques that produce excellent success. Chiropractic care has helped many youngsters avoid the unpleasant and unhappy effects of scoliosis, and avert the need to use unsightly braces or drastic, invasive surgical procedures.
