Treat Your Curved Spine With The Help Of Our Osteopathy For Scoliosis In London

Bare Neck

Scoliosis can lead to multiple back pains and stiffness due to changes in the spine or chronic tightness caused by restrictions in movement. This is where osteopathy can be helpful. 


Osteopathy is a hands-on, safe intervention that can help you manage pain and discomfort caused by curvatures that have been treated non-operatively through the years or that have been treated surgically in the past.


Patients with scoliosis suffer from activity limitations and participation restrictions due to their curved spines. Some symptoms include having one shoulder that is higher than the other, one shoulder blade protruding more than the other, uneven or adversely protruding hips, subtle or obvious lateral C or S-shaped curvature of the spine, ribs showing more prominent on one side of the body (also known as "Rib Humping"), head not centered when the body is neutral or relaxed, and many more.


The skilled scoliosis osteopaths at La Dolce Studio in London perform physical manipulation, manual manipulation, spinal adjustments, and myofascial techniques to yield significant results in treating or correcting scoliosis structurally and functionally.


Our services will help you live a painless life where you can freely engage in any daily or recreational activities of your choice.

About Scoliosis

Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine on the lateral side. In most cases, it is diagnosed during childhood or early adolescence. Scoliosis typically begins between the ages of 10-15. Scoliosis, with an unknown cause, affects 80% of teenagers. 

It is possible for the curvature to be stable or progressive. It is more likely for girls with larger curves to experience progressive worsening of their curves. X-rays are taken to confirm the diagnosis and determine the curvature's severity.


Several types of scoliosis exist, depending on their etiology: idiopathic, congenital, and neuromuscular.


  • Idiopathic Scoliosis - About 80 percent of all cases are diagnosed when all other causes have been ruled out. Usually diagnosed during puberty, adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is the most common form of scoliosis.

  • Congenital Scoliosis - A spinal malformation caused by an embryological malformation of one or more vertebrae. Unlike idiopathic scoliosis, congenital scoliosis is usually detected at a younger age.

Neuromuscular Scoliosis - is caused by cerebral palsy, spinal cord trauma, muscular dystrophy, spinal muscular atrophy, or spina bifida. Surgical treatment is often required because it progresses more rapidly than idiopathic scoliosis.


Signs And Symptoms

While every case of scoliosis is unique to the individual, there are some telltale signs that a child or adolescent may have the condition. Scoliosis can be detected by several symptoms.

  • Curvature of the spine in a sideways direction

  • Having a sideways body posture

  • An elevated shoulder on one side

  • Clothes not hanging properly

  • Aching muscles in the local area

  • Pain in the local ligaments

  • In severe progressive scoliosis, pulmonary function decreases.

It doesn't necessarily cause pain or problems throughout a person's life. However, it can be debilitating and lead to problems with breathing and heart capacity. This can limit an individual's ability to participate in activities.


A brace or surgery is unlikely to be needed for most people with mild scoliosis. The curvature of a child's spine may change as they grow if they have mild scoliosis. Regular check-ups may be needed. Scoliosis cannot be cured or reversed with a brace, but it is usually prevented from progressing further with a brace.

The severity of severe scoliosis usually progresses over time. A specialist may recommend scoliosis surgery to prevent it from becoming more severe and reduce its severity.


How Does Osteopathy For Scoliosis Work

Treatment depends on how much the spinal curvature affects your daily life or if the condition is deteriorating. Osteopathy increases the range of motion by manipulating the thoracic and lumbar spines and the rib cage. It is also beneficial to mobilize the pelvis when there is a difference in leg length. 


A person with the 'C' curve will have shortened muscles on the front of the body and will have developed a hunch on the back. This results from the chest and thoracic spine curving forward and compressing. Clients will also be given exercises and stretches to do at home. Some of these might be:


  • Standing hamstring stretches

  • The cat/cow stretch

  • The pelvic tilt

  • Gentle hip extension

  • Gentle spinal mobilizations and extension

Significance Of Osteopathy For Scoliosis

Osteopathy aims to prevent and treat problems in the body by manipulating the muscles and joints. As a holistic treatment, osteopathy focuses on the health and function of your entire body and can identify underlying causes and aggravating factors for your scoliosis. Here are some benefits of our services:


  • Determine the underlying cause of scoliosis, diagnose it, and treat it

  • Prevent the progression of scoliosis and reduce pain

  • Strengthen and restore flexibility that may have been lost

  • Realignment of the spine and other musculoskeletal system parts

  • The optimum function is promoted


Let Us Help You

Osteopathy can help treat both functional and structural scoliosis by physically manipulating the joints, including gentle mobilization and articulation. Scoliosis can get worse if left untreated and may cause pain and problems in adults; that's why it is recommended to get it managed as soon as possible.
