Scoliosis is the medical term for an abnormal curve in the spine. It has many implications for people suffering with it, most notably frequent and severe back pain. Scoliosis is a condition that must be managed well to prevent further bouts of pain, and increases in abnormal spinal curvature.
Often the changes are not reversible with conventional therapy.
The doctors at Innate Health and Wellness have had extensive training in the management of patients with scoliosis. At Logan College of Chiropractic, Dr. Hagan completed additional training in scoliosis care, giving him a great understanding in how to correctly manage people with scoliosis.
Our goal is simple: to help people with scoliosis to live better lives, without being impacted by their condition.
