Home Testing for Scoliosis

Home Testing for Scoliosis

At CORE Health Centers we are dedicated to providing children, adults, and seniors with a healthier and more balanced way of life. With this in mind, we would like to provide you some ways that you can help determine if you or your child has scoliosis or not. There are several warning signs a CORE Health Centers’ chiropractor looks for that can help them determine if a child has scoliosis. You should refer yourself or your child to a CORE Health Centers’ chiropractor if you notice any of the following:

  • One hip appears higher or is more prominent
  • One leg may appear shorter than the other
  • One shoulder blade sticks out more than the other
  • One shoulder is higher than the other
  • The entire body tilts to one side
  • The head is not centered directly over the pelvis
  • The rib cage is uneven
  • The waist appears uneven

Adam’s Forward Bend Test

The test for scoliosis screening is simple. The Adam’s Forward Bend Test is a standard exam often used by doctors or school nurses that can be performed by a parent as well. Most parents are capable of doing the screening test with a high degree of accuracy. Even parents with no medical training can detect relatively small curves if they look carefully. During the Adam’s Forward Bend Test, parents should ask their kids to bend at the waist as if they were touching their toes. The parent should then get their eyes level with the back and looks for one side being higher than the other, or any asymmetry of the back. The Adam’s Forward Bend Test is a simple scoliosis screening test that can detect potential problems. If you notice any unevenness, you should contact the chiropractors at CORE Health Centers for an exam.

At CORE Health Centers, we provide chiropractic solutions for a wide variety of pain, chronic pain, and other related symptoms that kids may be having. Our techniques used in our chiropractic adjustments for kids are designed to provide a non-narcotic, non-surgical solutions to pain relief for problems like earaches and ear infections. If your daily life is being affected by symptoms from an auto accident, stress, or other chronic pains, the team at CORE Health Centers is here to help you and your kids find relief and get you on the road to a pain free life.

When a patient has a subluxation, chiropractic adjustment can be used to correct the misalignment, which in turn helps enhance joint mobility, reduce pain, reduce muscle spasm, and reduce nerve irritation or impingement. At CORE Health Centers, patients are able to receive full evaluations, diagnostic testing, x-rays, treatments, therapies, and more all in one convenient location. Don’t suffer needlessly. If you suffer with any painful conditions, we strongly suggest that you schedule a complete pain assessment at any one of our convenient CORE Health Centers locations today.
