Hello,

For lower back pain, I would choose a chiropractor as we are trained for 4 years on spinal issues and the conservative treatment of these issues. Osteopaths are trained in gross manipulation of the spine with specific procedures similar and different than chiropractors. Osteopaths also have the ability to prescribe medicine unlike chiropractors who have a more natural approach. Having worked with osteopaths, I have found that chiropractic adjustment are much more precise when done. You will get results either way but, in my opinion, a good sports medicine/orthopedic chiropractor will be able to diagnose, treat, and correct lower back pain.

The treatment should consist of soft tissue work initially like massage, myofascial release, and neck mobilization. Because whiplash involves ligament and muscle injuries, chiropractors will treat with passive and active physical therapy as well as rehab. The goal is to start lightly and increase treatment intensity as you improve.

Does scoliosis correct itself?

It depends on the treatment involved. Physical therapy by itself will help strengthen muscles of the spine but you need chiropractic care to stimulate change on alignment and position. There is a specific technique of chiropractic created for scoliosis called CLEAR Institute. They specialize in curve correction for moderate to severe scoliosis. If there is not one on your area, look for a sports chiropractor as they see young athletes with curve issues a lot and have the rehab knowledge needed. Curves can correct if caught early on. Hopefully your daughter responds well to treatment.

Depending on what exactly the hip is hurting from, yes, you can get great relief from chiropractic care. Just need to find a chiropractor that will evaluate you to see what the cause is. Sometimes it feels like the hip and it turns out to be the low back or pelvis referring pain to hip. After pregnancy, including epidural or C-section, it may be from the low back even though the pain is in the hip.

Hi,

This is a very common question I get regarding posture. The best solution I can offer is a postural restoration exercise called wall angels. You can look them up on YouTube and you will see how simple yet effective they are. They basically retrain your postural support muscles to help you upright yourself over time. Posture is lost over time and has to be retrained and regained over time. Do them consistently and you will see results.

Is sciatica pain a lifelong problem?

Thank you for the question.

Sciatica is NOT a lifelong pain and if you are not seeing the benefit after two months of PT, then you have to make a change in therapy. Sciatica should be reducing within the first week or two and we see resolution within the month when the cause is found. If the right orthopedic tests or MRI's were not done to confirm if it was a disc bulge or herniation, spinal stenosis, muscle spasm, etc., then the treatment will not be specific for you case. I would recommend going to an orthopedic trained chiropractor as we see sciatic cases regularly and he/she can test you properly to determine the cause. Then, the treatment can be applied properly and sciatic relieved quickly.
