Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine. Conditions range from mild to severe and in many cases, the abnormalities are visually apparent. Scoliosis may either genetically base or result from a degenerative joint condition in the spine. Most commonly, it will be a cumulative effect of these two factors. Despite the seriousness of the condition, many individuals with scoliosis may experience no apparent symptoms other than vague muscle back pain and stiffness.
SIGNS OF POTENTIAL CONCERN
Uneven hips and waist resulting in escalating discomfort.
A deformity in the chest causing uneven shoulder blades and a rib hump
Shoulders are different heights and one shoulder blade is more prominent
Unevenness to breasts
Entire body leans to one side.
If you have any of these symptoms or related concerns, please schedule a visit to a KKT Centre near you for a thorough assessment.
It’s estimated that 4% of all children between the ages of 10 and 14 have detectable scoliosis with about 60 to 80% of all cases occurring in adolescent girls. Most people with scoliosis have barely noticeable curvatures.
THE EFFECT OF KKT ON SCOLIOSIS
KKT is a non-invasive scoliosis treatment that can be used to override the body’s internal sensory defenses and relax the surrounding muscles. These muscles can contract asymmetrically depending on the magnitude of the spinal curve and eventually lead to visual imbalances. Because the curved (scoliotic) spine compresses and rotates three-dimensionally, it must be clinically treated in such a manner as to correct the rotation. By repositioning the vertebrae to a more natural position and re-balancing the spine, early disease correction and prevention of a hyper rotated state is achieved. The KKT process also plays an integral role in stimulating the connective tissues of the spine to promote cellular regeneration.
The full treatment program also includes specifically prescribed dynamic spine mobilization exercises, which assist the KKT process noted above. The computer-generated exercises draw their input from specific x-ray data.
KKT takes an active rather than passive approach to treatment. Where traditional treatment allows patients to become dependent on their braces and potentially deteriorate into muscular atrophy and weakness, often leading to surgery, KKT allows for greater mobility, immediate spinal corrections and the time to regenerate unbalanced muscles, joints and bones.
KKT provides patients with renewed hope and is paving the way to preventing the detrimental effects of Scoliosis.
I came to the KKT Centre after being recommended by a friend. I was suffering from a severe case of scoliosis and wanted to explore treatment options before committing to a more aggressive surgical alternative. After my first treatment I could feel the change in my structure. Shortly after a series of treatments, the results were obvious. I had a very measurable outcome resulting in no surgery! I’m grateful to KKT and Dr.Khan.
