Scoliosis is a problem in the spine where the spine should be straight, but it’s curved.
And if you’re wondering, aren’t we supposed to have curvature in the spine? Well, not to a certain extent.
When we have scoliosis, the spine significantly curves one way or the other. And it’s not normal. Aside from an awkward posture, dealing with scoliosis can affect a lot of different areas of our lives. Watch the full video on what you need to know about scoliosis and how to fix it:
After the curve has reached a certain level, it’s called scoliosis. Now there is no complete cure for scoliosis. There are some surgical methods to stabilize curvatures that are so bad, they can cause deformities or affect the overall body’s health. But otherwise, there’s no absolute cure for it. But don’t get discouraged! Your scoliosis can be corrected using chiropractic adjustments. In addition, there are some things you can do at home that can help you with scoliosis.
The Scroths Method
To do the Scroths technique, you’re going to lie on a foam roller and place that foam right over that area that has most of the curvature (called the APEX.) So it’s important that you really understand where that place is.
(And your chiropractor will be able to tell you that.)
When you lie on your side, just relax on the foam roller. Then take slow, deep breaths in and out. If you’re using a foam roller and it gets really uncomfortable, then you may put a towel over the top of the foam roller so you’re body’s not digging into it too hard.
Do that as long as your body can tolerate it. You can hold that position for up to two minutes. And you can repeat these steps two to three times a day.
If you need someone to evaluate your spine, go and see your family chiropractor. In any chiropractic corrective technique, the first step is to identify the problem, correct the spine state, and strengthen and stabilize it to create complete healing.
