Untreated scoliosis continues into adulthood, and while it may be impossible to completely correct it in some cases, there are treatments available. While therapy might be more time-consuming and complex, there are still choices. Working with Dr. Katalina Dean at The Scoliosis Center of Utah is a great place to start when planning your treatment since each situation is unique.
Here at the Scoliosis Center of Utah, we provide treatments that fit all ages and stages of life. Whether you or a family member was recently diagnosed with scoliosis or has been living with the condition most of your life, there are several options available to make everyday activities more comfortable.
When the body is out of balance and crucial parts like the shoulders, hips, knees, or other elements are titled or not aligned correctly because of scoliosis, it can become painful and difficult to move around. Scoliosis may also cause problems with how the nervous system functions when the spine is misaligned which digests organs properly.
The enteric nervous system is the name for the nerves that run throughout your digestive tract. They connect to your spine, so a misalignment in your spine can cause issues with these nerves. If they become pinched, inflamed, or weakened over time, it might lead to problems with digestion including diarrhea, constipation, nausea, and acid reflux. Your spinal and nervous systems also have a hand in many additional bodily processes beyond simply aiding digestion.
People with scoliosis or other spinal problems often feel fatigued, irritable, and experience neck and back pain. They tend to have poor posture, can’t stand for long periods comfortably, and find it difficult to move their bodies freely.
Having scoliosis or spinal misalignment can be extremely painful and very difficult to live with. Some people, however, report no pain from scoliosis. Instead, they feel that their posture has been damaged, flexibility and mobility have decreased, so it would be better to correct the spine imbalance.
