“Scoliois in my spine? But I am 50 years old! I presumed scoliosis was a spine curve in young people.”
Well, that is not altogether accurate. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka sees many Sitka older patients with scoliosis and helps abate their pain with chiropractic.
(a curvature of the spine) can establish itself in the early years of life and then decline OR bring about disc degeneration
and pinched nerves in the middle back
and lower back
. The pinched nerves are formed by a condition called spinal stenosis
(a narrowing of the nerve opening spaces in the spine). Now, the condition of scoliosis and disc degeneration may cause pain in the legs due to stenosis. Pain down the legs called sciatica
is caused by a specific pinched nerve. But chiropractic can help!
Spinal stenosis in older adults with scoliosis is commonplace in our chiropractic, so you’re not by yourself! As a matter of fact, one study of 36 patients with a mean age of 69 years had leg pain at a severity level of 6.5 (on a scale of 0 no pain to 10 the worst pain the patient had ever had). 97% of these patients also presented at least one level of severe stenosis, and all but one had severe leg pain, too.
