What Is Scoliosis?
If you suffer from scoliosis, you should know that chiropractic is a recognized treatment option for the effects of scoliosis. At Rock Chiropractic our team of professionals can assist you in achieving relief from the most common issues that are soft from scoliosis. We also specialize in making structural corrective changes to the spine. Following Dr. Aaron Miller’s best recommendations will likely result in changes from the before to after x-rays of the spine.
Scoliosis is defined as an abnormal curvature of the spine. In the vast majority of cases, the curvature is sideways, but there may be more than one curvature issue in scoliosis victims. It’s estimated that almost three percent of the population suffers from scoliosis. Diagnosis is conducted by visual and x-ray methods.
Scoliosis can form as the result of a birth deformity or as an effect of an underlying condition such as cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy. There is no proof of hereditary or genetic conditions causing scoliosis. Dr. Miller claims he sees scoliosis much more in females. Furthermore, he believes that if a female has scoliosis that there is a very high probability that her mother or grandmother has scoliosis as well. Whatever the cause of scoliosis, Dr. Aaron Miller can help alleviate the resulting discomfort and pain associated with scoliosis.
The Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment for Scoliosis
There are a tremendous number of benefits of chiropractic treatments for scoliosis. For starters, scoliosis patients may have undergone corrective surgery for the condition. However, with chiropractic treatment, surgery is highly unlikely and a last resort.
Dr. Miller performs a completely non-invasive procedure, so the patient's absolute last resort would be surgery. Secondly, chiropractic treatment is often effective immediately. That means that, for a scoliosis patient in intense pain, immediate relief may be available after just one visit. Follow up visits will likely be necessary for adjustments.
Long term and aggressive care have a high potential of seeing structural spinal correction. Dr Miller uses specific chiropractic adjustments from multiple techniques such as Chiropractic BioPhysics, Pettibon and drop table adjustments.

I’ve been adjusted less than ten times. Before starting adjustments, my lower back would “pop” every time I would lie down to go to sleep. Now nothing mysteriously “pops” when I lie down.”
