M.D.s will tell you that the cause of most scoliosis is “idiopathic” or unknown. In the osteopathic profession we know that the occiput bone can become unlevel, torqued and compressed, and the sacrum can become immobile and compressed on one side with the forces of birth.

When a child stands up and gravity starts affecting the body´s structure, the childscoliosis_A1 tilts his head slightly to keep his eyes level with the world.

Then the curvature begins to form in his spine. Early osteopathic treatment can alleviate potential scoliosis completely. Partial to complete change of the scoliosis pattern has been known to happen up to age thirteen with osteopathy.

Sometimes a fulminate or rapid scoliosis happens because of metabolic patterns inherited at birth. This can be addressed with homeopathy.
