Scoliosis is an abnormal curve of the spine when it is viewed from the front or back. It is a condition which can progress and cause permanent disfigurement or dangerous compression on vital organs. All Massachusetts school systems screen elementary students for scoliosis. If a child you know has a positive screening it is important to have them checked by a chiropractor. Recommendations for posture and stretching and chiropractic adjustments can help slow the progression of, or even reverse scoliosis. The future health of a child?s spine is too important to ignore.
