Scoliosis Awareness Month 2021
We invite you to celebrate Scoliosis Awareness Month with us!
Here at Discover Chiropractic Centre, we are dedicated to making sure that people in our community have good spinal health – young people as they grow with strong healthy spines, and older people living an active, healthy life.
June is Scoliosis Awareness Month
Throughout June our aim is to raise awareness about scoliosis screening and the importance of early detection.
Early detection and then early intervention leads to better patient outcomes including wider opportunities for treatment.
Do you have a friend or family member who may have a scoliosis?
Could they recognise the signs?
Slouching, one shoulder or hip higher than the other and uneven shoulder blades are all signs that a person might have a scoliosis – a sideways curvature of the spine that can get worse as we grow or age.
Sometimes these things are easily spotted, and other times it may not be so obvious.
Regular checking for the signs of scoliosis in both children and adults, doesn’t need to be hard.
Screen and potentially recognise the signs of scoliosis using a free web based tool called ScoliScreen.
It’s designed to identify important signs and risk factors that may indicate that someone has or may be developing scoliosis.
It walks you through 8 simple questions, with an easy to use interface.
Anyone can use it, anytime.
Being proactive and scoliosis aware, can really make a difference to patient outcomes.
Spread the word, let family and friends know they can use ScoliScreen for free at home and if there are any concerns about your or your family’s spinal health, we are always available to help.
