Plainfield Chiropractic Office, Absolute Integrated Health Center, Provides Scoliosis Screenings
Plainfield IL, 18-JULY-2016 – Absolute Integrated Health Center and Dr. James Nakis DC are pleased to announce that they offer scoliosis screenings to the members of the community. The Plainfield chiropractor professional has the tools and knowledge to identify issues with the spinal column which may indicate scoliosis. The condition is characterized by a spinal column which curves too much. It forms an exaggerated “C” or “S” shape when the person turns to the side.
Scoliosis usually affects children ranging from three-years-old up to eighteen years of age. Girls are more prone to scoliosis than boys are. Early screenings are a crucial element in offering solutions. The screenings are painless and non-invasive so that even young children are not frightened by the process.
Since the screening must be done by a knowledgeable professional, the ability to receive the tests by Dr. Nakis DC is a helpful service to the community. Some states require that a screening test be performed to determine if a child has the condition. Some of the indicators include shoulders which are of different heights, one shoulder blade more prominent than the other, the head not centered over the pelvis, one hip higher than the other, or the rib cage is uneven.
A simple screening test that can be used by parents or by doctors or school nurses is called the Adam’s Forward Bend Test. Any discrepancies in the level of the child’s back when he or she is bent over as if to touch the toes may be a reason to seek out a professional examination.
