Dr. Lucien Eid on treating scoliosis: “I’ve got your back!”
What about Scoliosis? Scoliosis is characterized as a side deviation of the spine from its normal alignment. Many people to some extent have some curve in their spine. The good news is that if we detect it in its early stages it can be corrected or at least we can prevent it from worsening. What is Scoliosis? Scoliosis is a condition that causes the spine to deviate from its original position towards the side. So if you are looking from the back at the spine you can easily spot the deviation from the center to the left or to the right. Scoliosis usually encompasses women; females are ten times more likely to have it than males. Moreover, the spinal curve may develop as a single curve or as two curves. Scoliosis often does not have any noticeable symptoms until it has progressed significantly. In teens any deviation over ten degrees can be referred to as scoliosis. What are the symptoms? Predominately scoliosis has no known cause, which is why it is referred to as idiopathic scoliosis and most of the time patients complain about the aesthetic aspects like: uneven shoulders, one shoulder blade that appears more prominent than the other, uneven waist line, one hip higher than the other or a noticeable short leg when laying on their stomach. Parents of all teenagers should have them checked for scoliosis to make sure they don't have it. Parents should also be aware that scoliosis could develop rapidly especially between the age of ten and fifteen years old. Scoliosis that does not exceed 20% deviation can only be detected by a specialist. Typically, a doctor would observe a scoliosis curve that has not yet reached 25 degrees, by taking an x-ray every 4 to 6 months to see if the scoliosis is progressing or not. It is important to note that chiropractors know how to deal with all percentages of scoliosis even before it advances to 20 degrees. How can parents detect if their kids have scoliosis? First, parents can always tell from the sleeves when their children are dressed; If one sleeve is longer and the other is shorter. Second, they can look at their back and observe if the shoulders are the same height. Third, the pelvis can be higher on one side than the other and sometimes on both sides. Finally, they can tell by observing their child as he/she lie on their stomach by checking their legs; the length of both legs should also be equal. A parent, friend, or even the person with scoliosis might notice that a shirt or blouse appears uneven, which could be cause for further investigation. Meaning that clothes that fit awkwardly or hang unevenly, could be a sign of scoliosis. As a chiropractor I can detect scoliosis by inspecting the spine from the back to make sure it's aligned and the muscle mass on each side of it is equal. I can also perform orthopedic testing to check on the nature of the scoliosis. For instance, observing the patient bend forward 90 degrees from the waist with arms stretched toward the floor and knees straight. From this position, most scoliosis signs that present as asymmetry are clearly visible in the spine. What are the types of scoliosis? 1. Functional scoliosis: Also known as non- structural scoliosis, constitutes 90% of cases. It is usually caused by an unknown factor (idiopathic)Being diagnosed with functional scoliosis means that there is no problem with the individual bone anatomy that form the spine . This type of scoliosis could be caused by an underlying condition such as a difference in leg length or muscle spasm. In this type of scoliosis, the spine is normal, but an abnormal curve develops because of a problem somewhere else in the body. This could be caused by one leg being shorter than the other due to pelvic misalignment or by unequal muscle spasms in the back that emerge for a multitude of reasons like poor posture habits, activities of daily living or childhood trauma.We can help reverse this type of scoliosis and get great results. 2. Structural Scoliosis: Structural scoliosis involves a curve in the spine that is irreversible due to anatomical change in one or many of the bones that form the spine that is caused by as trauma, infection or some type of genetic problems causing osteoporosis. Chiropractic care can help those that suffer from structural scoliosis to better manage their pain and the spasms that stem from the symptoms of scoliosis. Scoliosis is a deformity that occurs when the spine becomes abnormally rotated and curved sideways. Scoliosis has the concave and the convex side. Chiropractic care involves manipulating the targeted bone at the apex or tip of the curve and using deep tissue massage. Patients should keep in mind that chiropractic treatment for scoliosis is a lengthy process for correcting the problem but they will feel relief from pain and spasm as early as the first session. How can scoliosis be treated and prevented? The chiropractic treatment plan for scoliosis is highly specialized as it involves a combination of manipulation, deep tissue massage, stretching and strengthening exercises. I also teach patients what to do at home to help with the treatment, proper way of sitting, standing, sleeping, carrying etc. Scoliosis can also be corrected if it is detected and treated at the right age and if the patient follows the prescribed treatment plan. Surgery is often the last resort as it is usually recommended after the scoliosis reaches 30 degrees. Get checked early and treat it early!
