Can minor scoliosis be cured?

When people ask if a condition can be ‘corrected’, what they most often mean is ‘cured’, or reversed permanently. While scoliosis can be reduced and managed to the point where it causes very few, if any, functional deficits, as a progressive and incurable condition, scoliosis cannot be cured.

How do you fix minor scoliosis?

Mild scoliosis is often managed simply with exercise, medical observation, scoliosis-specific physical therapy, and chiropractic treatment from a chiropractic scoliosis specialist. For some people with scoliosis, yoga or pilates is also recommended to decrease their pain level and increase flexibility.

Can scoliosis ever be corrected?

Scoliosis is a spinal deformity that cannot be cured, but its progression and severity can be managed with an effective treatment plan. The main condition characteristic that determines its severity is the size of the abnormal spinal curvature.

Can scoliosis make you shorter?

So to clearly answer the question, can scoliosis make you shorter: yes, it can. The worse a curvature gets, the more it bends unnaturally to the side, and this structural change can decrease height. That being said, for some patients, treatment can help regain some, or all, of those lost inches.

Can you fix scoliosis naturally?

Scoliosis is a progressive and incurable condition. As permanently reversing it would be akin to curing it, this is not possible; however, it is more than possible to manage and treat the condition through a natural treatment path.

How can I align my spine at home?

Keep your posture in mind, even if you’re taking it easy.

  1. Moving regularly is key! Don’t sit for too long, even in an ergonomic office chair.
  2. Keep both of your feet flat on the floor. Consider a footrest if necessary.
  3. Keep your back aligned against the back of your chair. Avoid leaning forward or slouching.
