Contrary to medical misinformation, scoliosis correction is effective and predictable through chiropractic care. Scoliosis is from the Greek word σκωλοσς [skoliosis] which means “crookedness”. According to Taber’s Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary, 18th ed. [F.A. Davis Co.: Philadelphia, PA, 1997; p.1727], scoliosis is a lateral curvature of the spine. It usually consists of two curves: a primary abnormal curve, and a compensatory curve in the opposite direction. Some chiropractors tend to use the term “scoliosis” to describe the presence of any, if even slight, lateral curvature of the spine. However, such a loose definition is a common misconception.
