Types Of Scoliosis
Scoliosis is when the back has a sideways curve. The spine takes on an "S" or "C" formed curvature. There are different types of Scoliosis. Depending on where the curvature is in the back is how the type of Scoliosis is determined.
Thoracic Scoliosis is in the spine on the upper back or between the shoulders. Lumbar Scoliosis is in the lower part of the back. Thoracic-Lumbar Scoliosis is more in the middle of the spine. And lastly, Combined Scoliosis is in the upper and lower spine.
How Acupuncture helps posture
Scoliosis is a condition that commonly has chronic pain as a side effect due to the spine not being healthily straight. As pain is experienced in the back, depending on the type and severity, posture and Scoliosis can go hand in hand.
Acupuncture can be abundantly beneficial to all Scoliosis patients. The ancient alternative medical treatment is known for relieving pain for many conditions that cause Chronic or Acute pain.
Many people with Scoliosis do experience that real, unbearably severe chronic pain. As a result of that pain, normal day-to-day life activity or posture can be affected.
Acupoints in the spine and being penetrated by fine needles will release endorphins into the back muscles, the spinal cord, and the brain.
They give the patient a sense of relief in more forms than just pain alleviation. Acupuncture's effects of physical and mental healing, rebuilding muscles, and soothing aches and pains have fiercely helped with posture in its patients.
Here's more on how Acupuncture can Alleviate Scoliosis
The Holistic Solution to Intense Pain
Acupuncture's push for the body to naturally come back into balance and its ability to take away the pain will always be remarkable.
Endorphins are the main pain-relieving chemical released into the body while undergoing and even after the treatment process. These Endorphins may produce opioid Peptides. Opioid Peptides connect to opioid receptors in the brain and have a natural effect like opioids.
The body's potential to naturally feel a solution for pain that a drug like morphine might've normally treated is groundbreaking and life-changing. Not only for patients who experience chronic pain; but also for addicts seeking help in their treatment.
Acupuncture Restores Life
Any patient who experiences chronic pain will potentially succumb to feelings of depression due to being limited in mobility and feeling bound by the pain they can't get rid of.
Acupuncture's capability of refining and restoration for the body goes beyond experiencing a physical transformation. From the inside out, you will feel different with increased personal well-being and refreshed drive for life.
Acupuncture will dissolve a lot of the burden that comes with chronic pain illnesses like Scoliosis through its multi-healing capabilities.
