Scoliosis Perspective

Scoliosis may be functional or congenital

Scoliosis Perspective Treatment of scoliosis, the lateral curving of the spine in an ‘S’ shape, is commonly misunderstood. The first thing to understand is that this is not a dreaded disease that medical scare tactics have forced many into undergoing spinal surgery.

The ideal process to best manage scoliosis is early identification at the ages of 8 or 9 for advanced cases and…

If you repeatedly crack your joints they become somewhat unstable by producing laxity in the ligaments that hold the joint together so the joint loses its stability. Stressful micro-movements of the joint make it arthritic with the cartilage deteriorating. What is that sound in the first place you ask?…
