Over the years I've heard this opening line - usually pronounced with a grave tone and a stern expression - like a guilty man's confession.
The truth is, almost no one is perfectly straight
- Except Donald Trump, he's the straightest man E-V-E-R! -
But we all have a kink or a twist in our spine
A healthy lifestyle and the occasional treatment help to balance the body and to successfully compensate for scoliosis, even if you look like Mr Banana!
However, the earlier you treat scoliosis the more chances you have to improve it.
Scoliosis will normally start developing during childhood.
As the body grows it's possible to maintain the curves from getting worse and even straighten them through appropriate treatment and exercise.
You get your teeth checked regularly by a dentist, wouldn't you do the same for your spine?
Children and teenagers should get their spines checked by an Osteopath every six months to a year.
Adults too should get a regular check by their Osteopath, especially if they have scoliosis or recurring pain.
Are you curious about what your body may be trying to tell you?
