Scoliosis Treatment in Oak Creek

girl spine check for scoliosisScoliosis is a condition characterized by an atypical lateral curvature of the spine. The spine should appear straight from the front or back, whereas side views show normal curves. In scoliosis, instead of a straight spine, there’s often more of an ‘S’ or ‘C’ shape.

Early Detection Is Key

The traditional marker for diagnosing scoliosis is a curvature greater than 20 degrees. However, at Oak Creek Relief & Wellness, we believe in proactive care and start managing the condition as early as 10 degrees. In fact, even if the curve is less than 10 degrees, starting preventive measures is beneficial.


Our Approach

Instead of a wait-and-see approach, we aim to manage and prevent the progression of the curvature. We employ different scoliosis-specific protocols, which include different types of tractions and exercises.

Traction: Think of it like trying to straighten a bent stick. We stress the curvature in a certain way using gravity and a specially designed foam wedge to help correct the curvature.

Exercises: We use muscle contractions on one side more than the other to correct the curvature using muscular support.

It’s important to note that this process is gradual, much like correcting teeth alignment with braces. In cases of more severe curvatures, custom-made braces may be used to help manage the condition.

When do we start screening?

We recommend starting screening for scoliosis around the ages of 10 to 13 or even sooner if there are noticeable postural discrepancies. As part of our commitment to your child’s wellness, we also monitor potential scoliotic curves during regular pediatric care appointments.
