For scoliosis treatment, Vancouver, Washington residents have an excellent option in Pain Relief Partners. Scoliosis is a condition that affects spinal alignment causing the spine to curve abnormally and appear as an “S” shape when viewed from the back. Typically found during a school screening, this condition affects approximately 2%-3% of American teenagers, and impacts more girls than boys. Scoliosis can cause pain and limit the patient’s range of movement because the abnormal spinal alignment creates muscle strain and can cause the vertebrae to be off-center, which can affect surrounding nerves. To correct these problems, you can trust the expertise of the medical professionals at Pain Relief Partners.
Many things can cause scoliosis including bone abnormality at birth (congenital scoliosis), muscle or nerve abnormality (neuromuscular scoliosis), and injury, trauma, illness, or surgery (degenerative scoliosis). There is no identifiable cause for about 80% of all scoliosis cases, and this leads to a diagnosis of idiopathic scoliosis. The current medical model for scoliosis treatment often involves a brace and surgery which is only recommended in about 0.01% of cases.
At Pain Relief Partners, scoliosis treatment means an integrated approach to wellness. Striving to utilize non-invasive therapies, like bracing and physical rehabilitation, rather than medicinal or surgical options, the providers at Pain Relief Partners offer treatments that emphasize optimal posture and spinal alignment to improve a patient’s pain and mobility through natural, rehabilitative therapies. For those struggling with scoliosis in Vancouver, Washington, Pain Relief Partners can help.
