Scoliosis, or an unnatural curve in the spine, can be a painful and debilitating condition if it is allowed to progress too far. Fortunately, most cases are mild, and can be handled relatively easily if they are discovered early enough. Alert your Edmonds chiropractor if you observe any of the following warning signs in your children:
The head does not appear to be in the middle of the body.
A shoulder or hip appears to be higher than the other shoulder or hip.
One shoulder blade sticks out further than the other.
One side of the waistline is flat.
- When the child bends at the waist, the ribs appear out of alignment.
