Providing Superior Chiropractic and Scoliosis Correction Services.
We Prove Our Results To Our Patients.
"Chiropractic care is more than just making the pain disappear and Scoliosis Correction is more than just making your lateral curvatures disappear. It is about learning, understanding and addressing the root cause of the problem so that you can take better care of your body and improve your quality of life for many years to come."
We aim to educate our patients about Chiropractic and Scoliosis and other natural solutions to common health problems in order to motivate you to take a more active and responsible role in restoring and maintaining your own spinal health as well as the people around you. As a chiropractor with speciality in scoliosis correction, we understand that although our patients may be diagnosed with the same condition, they respond very differently to treatments. For this reason, we tailor a specific plan of action to meet your needs, goals & unique medical and physical condition.
Finding a chiropractor who understands the most current techniques and approaches to addressing health problems, especially scoliosis, can be a daunting task. Most chiropractors will not know what to do with scoliosis and will refer these patients out to an orthopedist who will only recommend "wait and watch" attitude if it is under 25 degrees. If it is over 25 degrees, they might recommend body bracing which can be very uncomfortable and embarrassing, restricting your normal dailly activities. If it proceeds to over 40 degrees, they might recommend scoliosis surgery which is very invasive and painful. What is even worse is that there are chiropractors who lack the knowledge in scoliosis and attempt to manipulate the spine, especially the rib hump that is typically associated with scoliosis, which will only de-stabilize the spine and worsen the progression of scoliosis. Although, these chiropractors intent may be genuine to help these patients, they are actually doing more harm and dis-service to these scoliosis patients. Treatement of scoliosis requires a different approach and if you are currently with a chiropractor who does not treat according to special x-rays, monitor your progress regularly, blindly manipulate your spine and does not and cannot prove the correction with post x-rays, you may be doing more harm to your scoliosis.
We at New Jersey Scoliosis Center denounce the "Wait and Watch" attitude adopted by the orthopedist, pediatricians and uninformed medical professionals that is considered the standard of care for lateral spinal curvatures under 25 degrees. Why? To put it frankly, it is stupid. Why would you want to just watch your spine get worse over time? If you see a 8 degree lateral curvature of the spine, this is a problem that is waiting to get worse over time because the force of gravity always acts against our attempt to keep upright posture but why would you not do something about it? Why would you want to wait until it reaches the threshhold of 25 degrees? The reason is that these medical professionals lack the knowledge about scoliosis and have no training to correct scoliosis other than braces and surgery which starts at 25 degrees and 40 degrees respectively. Sadly, this is the state of our current scoliosis model. These medical professionals were taught to act when it is too late and when they do act, the options of bracing or surgery can hardly be considered the treatment of choice for scoliosis correction when the outcomes have been miserable for most patients because it really does not address the root cause that is driving the lateral curvature of the spine.
Scoliosis is not just a condition of lateral curvature of the spine over 10 degrees. It is much more complex than that as it involves the neuromuscular system that has maladapted in relation to forces of gravity which imbalances the proprioceptive mechanisms of our body that leads to buckling of our spine due to increasing tension on the spinal cord which leads to skeletal deformity or scoliosis. Thus, the lateral curvature in scoliosis is not the cause but rather the symptom of a problem that is much more complex and bracing and surgery do not address this root cause of the scoliosis.
If you or your loved ones would like to prevent spinal deformities, check to see if you do have scoliosis or would like to correct your scoliosis without the need for braces or invasive surgery, we are the clinic that can provide you the natural correction you desire. We prove our spinal correction with before and after x-rays which is the most objective evidence you can expect with posture correction. Please do not wait or assume that you are healthy or that you don't have any spinal problems because you feel fine. Cancer and heart attacks are dormant symptomatically for many years before they manifest their devastation and scoliosis is no exception.
