Chiropractors have been modifying spines since 1895 and helping individuals to live a life free of pain. Do you know that your overall health can be affected by the curves in your spine? Let’s take a look at what it says in the report.Do you want to learn more? Visit physicalevidencechiropractic.com/2020/11/04/the-importance-of-spinal-curves/
As well as their physiological responses to spinal modifications, many health problems have been studied, including hormone levels, changes in circulation, changes in blood pressure and a wide variety of other health parameters. One major question remains, however how important are spinal curves in an individual’s overall health picture? Will changes in the “natural” curve lead to a difficult future or be the cause of the current situation? With medicine, both conventional and alternative, continuously changing, new research is constantly being carried out and researchers are discovering new and state-of-the-art approaches to treat a range of health conditions.
After undertaking a systematic critical literature review, a new analysis in the chiropractic field published findings. Between 1942 and 2008, this literature review collected 54 published studies. For quality and content, the content of these published studies was reviewed. About 20,000 patients and the health of their spines were looked at in these trials. The curve which you can see as you turn to the side is a sagittal curve. A variety of different types of studies and methods used to test the sagittal curves of the lumbar spine (or lower back), thoracic spine (or mid back) and cervical spine (or neck) were included in this analysis of research on spinal curves. The lower back was studied in 38 trials. The middle back was investigated by Thirty-Four Tests. A look at the cervical spine was taken in six tests.
In five of the studies, a clear correlation was recorded with lung disorders that can lead to trouble breathing when it comes to an increased angle in the thoracic spine (referred to as kyphosis or ‘humpback’). Spinal curves of the middle back have also been associated with impaired physical function and pelvic organ prolapse.
