Scoliosis Treatment in Barcelona
Living a full and active life with scoliosis.
Vitalia Quiropractica in Barcelona offers a safe, non-invasive, non-addictive alternative to medications, which are commonly prescribed to scoliosis patients to help them manage their pain.
What is Dr Poli´s scoliosis treatment?
The first step involves a comprehensive assessment of the different elements of the “Scoliosis Syndrome” and X-ray measurements.
Gentle Chiropractic Adjustments to reduce joint rigidity and misalignments in the spine, lower inflammation and lower tension on the spinal cord, all of which ultimately optimize nervous system function, spinal health and posture.
Balance and Eye Muscle Exercises help to update the brain's Posture System, along with Core and Back muscle exercises.
Supplement therapy to help with digestion, loose ligaments and hormone building blocks.
Health benefits chiropractic care can provide to scoliosis patients are:
- Reduced pain
- Decrease worsening of scoliotic curvatures
- Improve posture
- Increased activity, mobility and life enjoyment
“Dr Poli had been greatly recommended to me. That's how I came to see her to treat my back pain that I've had for many years due to my scoliosis. Since then, my pain is more manageable and I can go through my day without thinking about it too much, which is a huge improvement…I feel more grounded and I've gained confidence in myself. “
What is a scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine. We also commonly find one shoulder and hip higher than the other, a rib or lumbar hump and front to back rotations. The diagnosis of scoliosis is made by X-rays, when the curvature angle is more than 10 degrees. It is more frequent in females and tends to occur during the growth spurt causing potential deformities.
Scoliosis can often be progressive and quality of life can be diminished, for example participating in activities or sports can be limited due to lower or upper back pain. Individuals affected may suffer from headaches, poor balance; have difficulties finding a comfortable position, reduced respiratory function or diminished self-esteem.
While there is no clear cure, Vitalia Quiropractica Scoliosis Therapy in Barcelona offers a safe, non-invasive, non-addictive alternative to medications, which are commonly prescribed to scoliosis patients to help them manage their pain.
What causes a scoliosis?
Dr Muriel Poli at Vitalia Quiropractica in Barcelona, views things differently and considers Scoliosis to be a Syndrome that involves much more than deviated bones in the spine.
What controls the muscle chains that pull the spine into proper alignment is the brain´s posture system. Scoliosis patients may have congenital abnormalities of the inner ears and thus have the balance part of the posture system thrown-off; they may also present with reproductive hormone imbalances which may affect the postural reflexes in the brain stem. They all have abnormal tensions in the meningeal system (the tough leather “freezer bag” that surrounds the brain, spinal cord and nerves), very loose ligaments, and digestive problems related to a sluggish pancreas.
What are the types of scoliosis?
The Idiopathic Scoliosis:
The traditional explanation is that it is a congenital condition that can be inherited from one generation to another. In other words the cause is unknown.
The Functional Scoliosis:
Trauma, such as a car accident, a fall or a blow to the spine, can create a sudden increase in spinal cord tension, and may cause the spine to go sideways, if this tension is left untreated.
