Finding Relief for Scoliosis

Scoliosis is also known as curvature of the spine. It can occur at the cervical, thoracic or lumbar regions and it can involve all three regions as well. Typically, a patient will have uneven shoulders, a compensatory gait, and an uneven waistline.

Scoliosis Treatments

Conservative treatment includes bracing, physical therapy and activity modification. Surgical correction for a progressive deformity at a young age is possible, depending on the degree of curvature. Once an individual reaches adulthood the likelihood of the deformity progressing decreases significantly. Therefore, surgical correction is not typically performed in adults. However, if the scoliosis is degenerative and develops later in life, corrective surgery is possible. Again, this depends on the degree of curvature.
