The Ageing Spine: Navigating Changes with Grac

The Ageing Spine: Navigating Changes with Grace

Ageing is a natural and inevitable part of life, and it affects every part of our bodies, including our spine. Just as a well-read book might have a few creases on its pages, a well-lived-in body might have a few wrinkles.

Should I See a Chiropractor for Scoliosis?

The short answer is yes. The longer answer is more complicated: your chiropractor may not be able to “fix” your scoliosis.

Chiropractic treatment can help relieve pain, restore movement, and slow further progression. This makes it a great option...
