Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine. The condition most often presents itself during the growth spurt right before puberty. Most cases of scoliosis are mild, but in some cases, children can develop additional spinal abnormalities that cause other issues in the body through adolescence and adulthood.
Chiropractic adjustments and care can help reduce pain associated with adult and childhood scoliosis. Further, ongoing chiropractic care can help stop further spinal degradation from occurring.
The goal of your Bend chiropractor will be not to cure your scoliosis but rather, improve your form and induce joint mobility. Our therapies will help decrease pain and improve your posture, which will ultimately lead to a better quality of life and fewer issues in the future.

Whether you were recently diagnosed or have been dealing with scoliosis for decades, let us help get you on a course of healing and long-term spinal health
