Scoliosis occurs most often during the growth spurt just before puberty.
Most cases are mild with few symptoms. Some children develop spine deformities that get more severe as they grow. Severe scoliosis can be painful and disabling.
Chiropractic treatment is proven to help reduce and stabilize the curve. Dr. Schroeder is the ONLY Certified CLEAR Scoliosis Doctor in the State of North Dakota

Infants to adults, bike rides are always fun. Put on your helmets and get on those bikes! It is a great way to exercise as a family too! Fargo offers so many great trails and parks to bike around make it a goal to check them out.

 

There are always fun things to do in the summer either by yourself or with family members. Remember to start slow and stretch out your muscles. One of the best ways to get ready for the summer is to get a chiropractic adjustment and for the kiddos as well.
