Scoliosis


ACUPUNCTURE and SCOLIOSIS

We would need any and all medical reports to determine the extent of the patient’s health problems.

1. The patient could have low blood pressure. Lung, heart or kidney problems. The Chakra’s (Major Energy centers in different parts of the body) are closed without energy to support skeletal system. That is why most cases are of unknown origin.

2. Scoliosis might have displacement. We would adjust the ribs and hip bones, with 
all these techniques, and will help them become normal.

3. With the use of our Hi-Tech Energy machine to help support skeletal system and open the cells to help the body to correct the bones.

SCOLIOSIS

Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine. Although it usually doesn’t cause pain, scoliosis or its treatment can sometimes wound a child’s self-esteem. At worst, scoliosis can interfere with the function of organs.

The spine is an elegant structure – from the side it takes the form of an elongated S, the upper back bowing outward and the lower back curving slightly inward. Viewed from behind though, the spine should appear as a straight line from the base of the neck to the tailbone. If your child has scoliosis, the view from behind may reveal one or more abnormal curves.

Most cases of scoliosis don’t get worse, and periodic checkups may be all that your child needs. Children with more a severe curve that continues to increase, however, may require a brace or surgery. Scoliosis runs in families, but doctors often don’t know the cause. More girls get scoliosis than boys. Of every 1,000 children, three to five develop spinal curves that are severe enough to need treatment.

Onset of scoliosis rarely occurs in adults. Sometimes, adult scoliosis is a worsening of a condition that began in childhood, but wasn’t diagnosed or treated. In other cases, it may result from a degenerative joint condition in the spine. Signs of scoliosis may include:

Uneven shoulders
One shoulder blade that appears more prominent than the other
Uneven waist
One hip higher than the other
Leaning to one side
As scoliosis curves get worse, the spine will also rotate or twist, in addition to curving side to side.

This causes the ribs on one side of the body to stick out farther than on the other side. Severe scoliosis can cause back pain and difficulty breathing.

Scoliosis runs in families and may involve genetic (hereditary) factors. But researchers haven’t identified the gene or genes that may cause scoliosis.Doctors also recognize that spinal cord and brainstem abnormalities play a role in some cases of scoliosis.

Scoliosis isn’t caused by poor posture, diet, exercise, or the use of backpacks. The development of scoliosis is usually gradual and almost always painless. A curve can develop without the parent or child knowing it.

Early detection is important to start treatment that can prevent the curve from getting worse. For this reason, many schools provide screening for scoliosis. Although rare, scoliosis has the potential to lead to serious health problems, such as severe back pain, difficulty breathing, physical deformity, and even injury to the lungs and heart. Be sure to have your child see your doctor if you have a family history of scoliosis. Your doctor will ask about your child’s personal and family medical history and may take diagnostic steps.
