30 years suffering scoliosis dramatically improved in one treatment

Dental / Scoliosis Connection

Dino developed scoliosis following orthodontic four bicuspid amputation retraction orthodontics. Conventional orthodontic treatment has the great potential for torquing the cranial bones and retracting the mandible. This combination of distortions results in scoliosis by twisting the dural membrane, which extends from the cranium to the second sacral tubercle. Despite chiropractic, physical therapy, exercises and acupuncture no positive results were obtained. Dino's temporal bones were severely torqued with little occlusal contact on the posterior left side and pronated feet, which contributes to the ascending distortion up the spine to the temporal bones. Treatment involved cranial adjustment and orthotics to correct foot alignment. It is said that pictures express a thousand words. The following three photographs were taken December 6, 2012 before treatment, immediately after the foot orthotics were inserted and immediately after the cranial adjustment was performed. Left side posterior occlusal contact was greatly improved.
