Recent chiropractic research reports on a 7-year-old boy with scoliosis (lateral curvature) of the spine experiencing improvement in the curvature following chiropractic care.

This research reveals that chiropractic care may play an important role in caring for scoliosis and spinal curvature.

The research, reported in the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health, includes a review of the literature on scoliosis and chiropractic.

It also reviews potential mechanisms by which the improvement may have occurred.

“Research is revealing that there is a relationship between abnormalities in the spine, the nervous system and structural abnormalities such as scoliosis” – Matthew McCoy DC, MPH

Matthew McCoy DC, MPH, a chiropractor, public health researcher and editor of the journal that published the study stated…

“Research is revealing that there is a relationship between abnormalities in the spine, the nervous system and structural abnormalities such as scoliosis”

McCoy continued…

“This case adds to the body of scientific literature suggesting that chiropractic should play an important role in managing children with scoliosis and spinal curvatures”.

THE RESULTS?

On X-ray examination, this boy’s spinal curvature went from 25 to 11 degrees.

This was achieved through correcting an issue with this child’s spine and nerve system… something the doctors at Keystone Chiropractic can help your child with.

What does this mean moving forward?

    • Better long-term health outcomes
    • Better posture
    • Avoiding compression of vital organs (heart, lungs, digestive organs)
    • Potentially avoiding spine surgery and advanced bracing

If you would like to have your child checked for structural changes in their spine or know someone with scoliosis, let them know chiropractic care may help and refer them to Keystone Chiropractic for a complimentary consultation and case review.
