According to most medical doctors, Scheuermann’s disease has an unknown cause hence the nickname, “Idiopathic juvenile kyphosis of the spine.” Idiopathic means they don’t understand the cause. However, Scheuermann’s disease is actually the body responding correctly to direct stimulus. Whenever the body degenerates or ossification occurs at any joint it’s because there is lack of movement, trauma, or lack of nutrients to the area. First, we must analyze the structure and biomechanics of your spine to see what isn’t functioning properly. Then we must analyze your diet, digestive system, and lifestyle to see why your spine isn’t getting proper nutrients to rebuild itself. You may have poor digestion, poor nutrition, poor gastric motility, and your body may be in a sympathetic dominant state. If you correct all these issues then you can stop the degeneration, reverse the disease, and live a perfectly healthy and normal life.
First, you need to find a corrective chiropractor who can analyze your spine and nervous system, identify the specific problems, and correct them accordingly. Make sure you find a chiropractor with the skills necessary to reshape the structure of the spine, restore normal biomechanics, and stimulate the nervous system to promote healing and normal function.
Here’s a video that’ll help you find the best possible chiropractor in your area:
In addition to chiropractic care you’ll need to incorporate extension and twisting exercises throughout the day. These exercises will help regenerate the discs and vertebrae as well as aiding in absorption of nutrients, but keep in mind these exercises are most effective when combined with chiropractic care.
These videos demonstrate the exercises you should be doing:
The second step is making sure your body is getting enough nutrients to build healthy bone and tissue. If you have any digestive disorders or a poor diet than this could be a major cause. The dietary changes I explain in the video below will supply your body with the nutrients it needs to build healthy bone and stop the degeneration of your spine.
