Young children and teens are still growing, with their spines and bones continuing to develop. If they have a deformity of their spines, they can develop conditions like kyphosis or scoliosis. People of any age can develop lower back pain that results from injuries or underlying medical conditions, such as arthritis.
Once you or your child has been diagnosed, you need to find the right kind of treatment or combination of treatments. Our chiropractors at Balanced Health Medical in New York, NY will help with your symptoms and pain.
If you wake up one morning with low back pain, you may have hurt yourself which is a mechanical condition. If you have a health condition that affects your lower spine, your pain is “radicular,” meaning that it radiates out from your lumbar spine.
Our Balanced Health Medical chiropractors can treat your condition, helping to restore you to normal health. Once you receive your diagnosis, your chiropractor will be able to help you find relief.
Kyphosis is a spinal condition that shows up as an upper-spine hunch. Children entering adolescence are most likely to develop this disorder. It can come as the result of hunching over, a congenital cause or because of a spinal abnormality. A severe curvature may cause pain, so non-steroidal medication may be recommended to help. Our chiropractors in Manhattan can help your child lessen the degree of curve once they know what causes it.
Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature that causes the spine to rotate and curve sideways. Depending on the degree of curvature, it can cause pain.
After you or your child has been diagnosed by our Balanced Health Medical chiropractor, you will be interviewed about your condition and evaluated for chiropractic treatment. This may consist of exercises that help to reduce the degree of curvature.
Whatever your condition is, our chiropractors in Manhattan can give you relief. Located west of the Rockefeller Center, our address is 133 E 58th St #1101, New York, NY 10022. Call today to make an appointment at (212) 755-1717.
