Stiffness and pain in the back created when the spine curves in an unnatural position are considered to be scoliosis. We do not know what causes this disease, but it is very common in women and can begin as early as childhood. If scoliosis is detected early, it can be prevented from worsening. In fact, only 2% of our population is directly affected. Chiropractors can identify some of the problems and help with spinal re-alignment by checking your overall health and lifestyle. Although this may not completely cure Scoliosis, it can help, over time, with the pain and stiffness. See our Chiropractor help with the pain!
