Scoliosis Treatment in Midtown New York Chiropractor
Scoliosis can be a painful and debilitating condition, especially when left untreated.

With our convenient hours and location right in front of Rockefeller Center, we’re just moments away from most Midtown NYC homes and offices.
The human spine naturally forms a slight S curve, but those with scoliosis typically have an abnormal side-to-side lateral C curve. Curvature abnormalities beyond 10-degrees are considered scoliosis, with 20-40-degree curves being considered moderate. Any abnormalities beyond those figures indicate a more serious, degenerative form of this condition. While there are different levels of seriousness, there are also several different types of scoliosis including:
- Idiopathic Curvature
- Paralytic Curvature
- Congenital Curvature
- Myopathic Curvature
- Secondary forms of Scoliosis Including Osteoporosis and Osteomalacia
Each of these conditions can result in complications with walking, standing and result in chronic neck and back pain. Fortunately, our doctor at NuView Health Medical offers holistic treatment five days a week.
Scoliosis Treatment from Your Midtown NYC Chiropractor
Numerous studies have proven the efficacy of chiropractic care for scoliosis relief and symptomatic treatment. Our chiropractor evaluates each patient’s specific diagnosis and current condition before establishing an integrated regimen of care that will provide optimal results. The most typical care plans for scoliosis include:
Warm heat and electro-stimulation activates endorphins and can provide immediate relief for symptoms such as soreness. We also offer other supplemental physiotherapy care such as acupuncture and massage therapy that can be useful in addressing scoliosis symptoms.
Manual Spinal Manipulation
These adjustments by our chiropractor attempts to help correct curvatures in the spine and vertebra by gently using their hands to put them in proper positioning. Of course, with scoliosis, results may be limited and temporary but can provide tremendous relief for sufferers.
An integral part of postural correction for scoliosis patients includes guidance from experienced physical therapist who understands this condition and how patients can gain strength and get relief. Through a series of corrective exercises patients can promote their individual healing in our office and at home.
