Adults with Scoliosis May Be Helped by Chiropractic Rehabilitation
A 2011 study revealed that chiropractic treatment can significantly ease the pain and disability of adult scoliosis. This is one of the first studies on the effects of chiropractic and exercise on adult scoliosis.
In the study, 28 patients with adult scoliosis participated in a chiropractic rehabilitation program. The program included exercise and weight-bearing activities designed to correct spinal misalignment. Exercise was facilitated by a chiropractor for six months, and then patients were assigned at-home exercises for the remaining duration of the study. After six months of treatment, patients saw their disability scores cuts in half and experienced a 40% reduction in pain. The majority of patients’ spines became less abnormally curved. This improved spinal alignment made it easier for patients to breath normally — something that often becomes difficult with scoliosis.
