Typically, scoliosis begins as a minor bend in the spine that gradually progresses. In fact, for the diagnosis of scoliosis to be made, there must be a minimum 60-degree sideways curve of the spine. Once the spine has advanced to this stage there are often severe health consequences. The good news is that if the bending of the spine is discovered and cared for properly during its early stages, it can be prevented from advancing over time.

If you have been injured in an accident, our chiropractic clinic can help you understand the options that you have.
Many people are surprised to find out that most injuries in the workplace happen from overuse injuries. The most common of all the risk factors associated with work injury is repetitive stress. Small tasks that happen with poor posture create big problems over time. Twisting and turning while moving boxes and even continuous typing in a poor position. You would think it’s the big package that falls on you, but it’s the small ones handled more often each day that create the majority of injuries.
Arm & Leg Pain
Our shoulder and hip joints are two of the most mobile and frequently used joints in our bodies. This combination of frequency and mobility has led to a wide range of possible injuries and sources of pain. Due to the complexity of the joints and the vast number of possible causes, it is important that you see someone who is trained in these areas to get an accurate diagnosis. Our doctors at Acton Family Chiropractic will use a detailed and complete approach to figure out what is exactly causing your pain, and as a result, the best possible treatment solution for it.
Did you know that just as nerves become pinched in your back by the bones in your spine, the bones in your wrist may also compress nearby nerves giving rise to the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome? While many people seek treatment through surgical means, our team at Acton Family Chiropractic has had success in treating carpel tunnel syndrome through non-invasive adjustments to the bones of the wrist.
The shoulder complex is the most mobile joint in the body and as a result, is subject to a wide range of injuries and conditions. The causes of shoulder pain are endless, but some of the most common reasons for pain in the shoulder include, neck and upper back problems, arthritis in the shoulder complex, abnormal motor patterns causing aberrant motion, participation in athletic events, and automobile accidents. Our chiropractic clinic can help.
It’s common for women to complain of a lot of lower back pain while pregnant. The physical stress of pregnancy can lead to a great deal of discomfort. During pregnancy, a women’s body is undergoing a number of different changes to accommodate the growing baby. Due to the weight that is gained, a mother’s center of gravity changes. It shifts to the front of her pelvis and this is not a natural position. It can result in added stress and discomfort in the lower back and various joints in the pelvis. This may lead to difficulty performing daily routines and create difficulties in labor.
