  • Scoliosis



The Chiropractors at Align Corrective Chiropractic Durban use natural means to treat scoliosis and the pain that it causes.

What is the cause of scoliosis?

Scoliosis is a sideways curve of the spine that results in poor posture, pain and stiffness. The cause is often unknown and is far more common in females. It usually begins in early childhood, and if detected early, can be prevented from worsening with appropriate treatment.

The sideways curve of scoliosis often results in a hump near the rib cage, which usually results in uneven shoulders and hips, and is not corrected by the patient holding themselves in a better posture

In some cases, scoliosis can be caused by trauma or degenerative changes to the spine. If not treated properly, severe back pain, stiffness, deformity and breathing difficulties can arise.

Treatment of scoliosis

At Align Corrective Chiropractic Durban you will be assessed thoroughly to determine if you have this condition, and your treatment options will be discussed with you. If needed, we will take spinal x-rays to determine the severity of your curve and to decide on a corrective treatment plan for you.
