  Title Chiropractic management as conservative care for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis: A cases [sic] report
Journal Asia-Pac Chiropr J. 2021 ;2(2):1-9
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Scoliosis is a medical condition in which the spine has a permanent lateral curve. During the rapid growth stage, adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is the most frequent and potentially severe form of scoliosis. AIS is a complex condition influenced by genetic, hormonal, neuromuscular, and environmental variables, according to most experts. Six scoliotic teenagers with AIS were treated with chiropractic care in 2020 and 2021. For 6-9 months, chiropractic therapy was administered three times/twice a week. Both discomfort and mobility have been demonstrated to improve when the spine is adjusted and managed by chiropractors. On subsequent radiographs, an average correction in Cobb angle is 59% improvement. Because the medical community does not give any treatment for such a mild scoliosis, this research demonstrates the benefit of chiropractic in the adjustment of early scoliosis. A randomized trial is needed to confirm the efficacy of this treatment for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.
