Do You Have Scoliosis?
There are quite a few common physical symptoms that may indicate scoliosis:
- One shoulder is higher than the other, causing an uneven hem or shirt line
- One shoulder blade sticks out more than the other
- One hip appears higher or more prominent than the other
- The waist appears uneven
Having one or more of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean you have scoliosis. It just means that your symptoms match those commonly associated with this condition, and that there is a possibility that you have or are developing it. In any case it would be a good idea to visit a doctor or orthopedist.
Massage Therapy Can Help!
The therapists at Advanced Alternatives Massage Therapy may utilize techniques such as ETPS Therapy, Medical Massage, and Myofascial Release or assisted stretching to address restricted tissue patterns surrounding the spinal column. By elongating these tightened areas, the causal pull on the spine can relax.
Alternative treatments are not suggested to replace a traditional physician’s prescription. However, massage therapy can help reduce some of scoliosis’ related symptoms.
Why Choose Advanced Alternatives?
Due to the elongated musculature on one side and the shortened musculature on the opposite side, back pain, shallow breathing, sciatica, headaches and insomnia are frequent issues that a person with scoliosis must contend with. Our massage therapists are committed to help you understand your curve and your accompanying spinal rotation and can suggest specific stretches to help offset your imbalances. Lets work together to help relieve your pain.
Your Massage Therapy sessions can be dedicated to relaxation, specific injuries or conditions, or can be a blend of both. Our Massage Specialists often work in conjunction with doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, acupuncturists and other health care professionals to provide our clients with the highest level of care possible.
