Kirkland Chiropractor, Ryan Coogan, Helps Scoliosis Sufferers Get Relief
Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine. It affects approximately 23 of every 1000 people. About 80 percent of cases are young girls in adolescence. The primary causes of scoliosis are not known at the present time, but research is continuing. In the past, there were only three options for patients with scoliosis. These were to do nothing (if curvature is less than 25 degrees), wear a brace (curvature between 25 and 40 degrees) or have a rod inserted into the spine to stop the progression of the condition (extreme cases only, curvature over 40 degrees). This Kirkland chiropractic doctor has found a way to provide patients with scoliosis a new option, to not only stop the progress of scoliosis but to correct it.
Kirkland Chiropractor, Ryan Coogan, Helps Scoliosis Sufferers Get Relief Kirkland, WA 3/31/10 -- East Side Spine and Wellness is pleased to announce that Dr. Ryan Coogan, DC now uses the CLEAR Institute method to provide relief from scoliosis and its related problems and pain. This method involves application of 10 different chiropractic techniques and has been shown to achieve outstanding results in patients with scoliosis of all ages. When applied properly, this method not only stops the progression of scoliosis, it can also correct and reduce abnormal spinal curvature within a month. In the first part of the therapy, the muscles and soft tissues that pull on the spine are worked and relaxed so that the spine can be adjusted. Next, manual adjustments are performed based on exact measurements and angles to help reduce the abnormal curvature. Finally, the body is retrained to maintain this more normal posture.
