What is Scoliosis?

Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine. Conditions range from mild to severe and in many cases the abnormalities are visually apparent. Scoliosis may either be genetically bases based  or result from a degenerative joint condition in the spine. Most commonly, it is be a cumulative effect of these two factors.

Despite the seriousness of the condition, many individuals with scoliosis may experience no apparent symptoms other than vague muscle back pain and stiffness. It’s estimated that 4% of all children between the ages of 10 and 14 have detectable scoliosis with about 60% to 80% of all cases occurring in adolescent girls. Most people with scoliosis have barely noticeable curvatures.

Signs of Potential Concern

  • Uneven hips and waist resulting in escalating discomfort
  • A deformity in the chest causing uneven shoulder blades and a rip hump
  • Shoulders are different heights and one shoulder blade is more prominent
  • Entire body leans to one side
  • Unevenness to breasts

The effect of KKT on Scoliosis

KKT is a non-invasive scoliosis treatment that can be used to override the body’s internal sensory defenses and relax the surrounding muscles. The KKT Orthopedic Spince Center treatment process also plays an integral role in stimulating the connective tissue of the spine to promote cellular regeneration. The full treatment program also includes specifically prescribed dynamic spine mobilization exercises, which assist the KT process noted above. The computer generated exercises draw their input from specific x-ray data.

KKT takes an active, rather than passive, approach to treatment. Where traditional treatment allows patients to become dependent on their braces and potentially deteriorating into muscularly atrophy and weakness, often leading to surgery, KKT treatment generates allows to generate mobility, immediate spinal corrections and the time to regenerate unbalanced muscles, joins and bones.
