Scoliosis is described as abnormal curves in the spine. These curves go side to side and can have detrimental effects on a person if left untreated. Scoliosis effects approximately seven million Americans. There is no exact cause of scoliosis but research suggests that genetics is the main source. That means if anyone in your family has/had scoliosis it would be a good idea for you to get checked, especially if you have not reached skeletal maturity (approximately 20 years old). Chiropractic care is highly effective in treating scoliosis. If caught early enough, chiropractic care can help prevent scoliosis from getting worse so that you may live without complications.
At Richard Williams Chiropractic, Dr. Williams uses the Logan Basic technique which has been identified as one of the most effective techniques in treating scoliosis since it was created by Dr. Logan. This technique is only taught at Logan College of Chiropractic. While at Logan, Dr. Williams took the optional Advanced Logan Basic course which dealt extensively with the research and treatment of scoliosis.
