Scoliosis is a lateral curvature of the spine which can arise immediately following child birth or develop later on in life. This "sideways" curvature of the spine can cause multiple life altering changes which can be devastating. When left untreated, a curve of less than 10 degrees can eventually increase to 30 degrees of more. Besides altering the appearance of the individual, it can affect one's posture, gait and reduce the normal movements of the spine. Scoliosis can also affect the normal functioning of the internal organs by placing undo stress and pressure upon them. And by not addressing this problem early enough, catching it too late will leave the patient with no other alternative than radical surgery.
Dr Badalamenti specializes in the treatment of scoliosis and has been successful of its reduction in 80 to 90 percent of his patients. He has a tried and proven three pronged approach that can effectively reduce or at least halt the progression of this common spinal deformity. Between the treatments received in the office and the specialized home or gym exercises given to the patient, positive results often occur. Please, give our office a chance before its too late!

Many of you have experienced firsthand the benefits that chiropractic care has had on your health. But what about your children? Have you ever considered bringing them in for a chiropractic checkup?
Surprisingly the first stress placed on a child's spine is during the birthing process. Equally surprising is the fact that 26% of children surveyed at school reported a history of upper and/or lower back pain.
A child's spine is frequently subjected to repeated forces in the process of learning to walk, as well as a multitude of childhood mishaps, sports related injuries and postural strains. Many adults that come to a chiropractor's office show evidence of childhood injuries to their spine that are a contributing factor for their pain today. This is why it is important to have your child's spine checked regularly for any signs of spinal imbalances or misalignments.
Fortunately chiropractic care has had many positive results in treating some very common childhood maladies; like colic, headaches, scoliosis and poor posture in general. Dr. Badalamenti (Dr. B) has documented evidence in helping to reduce the lateral curvature of scoliosis in people of all ages; safely and effectively. Because a child's skeletal system is still developing, there is still a great deal of elasticity within the joints, requiring only light pressure to make the necessary correction.
Dr. B has been adjusting children for many rewarding years, with the youngsters looking forward to their treatments. If you suspect your child of having scoliosis or know of an acquaintance with this spinal deformity, please bring them in for a FREE consultation. These children may be able to avert life altering surgery.
So next time you come in for treatment, please stay an extra few minutes and invest in your child's health. This may save them needless suffering in the future.
Dr. B also specializes in techniques that can care for your spine and relieve pain and discomfort throughout the entire term of your pregnancy. Mothers can have their spines gently realigned and receive therapy while laying of their stomach. Yes, you read right; while laying face down. A special table is used with a drop pelvic support that gently supports the abdominal area without putting any undo pressure or stress on the uterus or the fetus.
During the course of pregnancy, the pressures on the spine naturally increase greatly causing changes to the dynamics and positions to spinal and pelvic segments. This, in turn can cause strain on the muscles of the lower back leading to spasm and pain. This pressure can also lead to nerve impingement which typically leads to sciatica which is pain radiating down either or both legs. During pregnancy biomechanical and postural changes happen which can affect the function of your spine in the future. Chiropractic help to improve the mechanics of the spine to reduce and even eliminate nerve pressure.
Many patients have reported back that even their labor was easier after chiropractic treatment during the pregnancy when these patients previously had not used chiropractic on their prior deliveries. Many patients have decided to continue their chiropractic treatments long after the birth of their child because it made them feel so much better.
Chiropractic is gentle and effective, helping your body heal without the use of potentially harmful drugs or invasive surgery. Mothers should be aware that during pregnancy, most medications are passed on to their unborn child and even after birth through breast milk and breast milk is one of the most important forms of nutrition and helps form the immunity of your child.
Dr. B has treated a multitude of pregnant patients from the moment of conception, right up to delivery. Women love being able to lay on their stomachs with no pressure on the abdominal area. Effective non-force chiropractic techniques, along with certain adjunctive therapies help reduce all types of discomfort associated with pregnancy. Dr. B has over 30 years experience in this area.
