Based on the information you have provided, there would be several more questions I would need to ask about the mechanism of injury and past medical history before being able to fully clear you for chiropractic treatment in such a state. However, I can assure you that after such a spinal injury has healed it will be very vital for you to have the rest of your spine checked by a chiropractor for bio-mechanical evaluation in order to prevent future vertebral issues.

After being cleared by your surgeon, you can be seen by a chiropractor for further spinal treatment. However, certain types of chiropractic techniques would more beneficial than others after a cervical fusion. When searching for a chiropractor following your fusion, try looking for chiropractors in your area that utilize Activator adjusting tools or who practice "Upper Cervical Chiropractic" because those techniques do not utilize high velocity thrusts or forces. They are more gentle techniques that would be better suited for someone following any type of surgical alteration to the spine. READ MORE
There are multiple facets to the treatment and correction of improper or imbalanced posture which makes it hard to estimate an exact amount of time it would take to completely correct.

The treatment for scoliosis is entirely dependent on whether the patient has functional or structural scoliosis. This can only be determined via X-ray analysis. Once the type and severity of the scoliosis is identified, then treatment plans can be developed. For most minimal, functional-type scoliosis cases, routine chiropractic care along with therapeutic exercises can minimize patient discomfort from the condition and can even, in some cases, correct the curvature over time. More serious cases can also benefit from chiropractic care, but more patient information would be ended to make those clinical decisions. In Health, Dr. Amanda Richerson READ MORE
Greetings, I'm glad you're thinking about adjustments as a means to help with back pain, but also as preventative care for future bio-mechanical issues. Unfortunately, without a through medical history and examination of your spine, it is impossible to tell you exactly how many adjustments you would need to receive to treat your presenting symptoms or to have administered as maintenance care. With that being said, scheduling an initial consultation appointment with a chiropractor would provide the information needed to accurately formulate the right treatment plan for you. I hope this helps point you in the right direction to having your question answered! In Health, Dr. Amanda Richerson READ MORE
