Understanding Scoliosis Pain Management
Scoliosis is a condition where the spine develops a sideways curvature, usually in an "S" or "C" shape. For the most part, the cause of scoliosis is unknown. What we do know its signs typically emerge during the growth spurts that take place before and during puberty. However, scoliosis can occur at any age, and it is more common in girls than in boys. Here at Advanced Chiropractic Wellness Center in Frankfort, IL, we help manage and treat the pain.
