Understanding Scoliosis

Scoliosis is a medical condition characterized by an abnormal sideways curvature of the spine. Typically, the spine has a natural curve when viewed from the side, but in the case of scoliosis, the spine curves from side to side, often resembling an "S" or "C" shape. This curvature can vary in severity, with some individuals experiencing only a mild form, while others may have a more pronounced and noticeable curve.

The causes of scoliosis can be varied and may include congenital factors, neuromuscular conditions, injuries, or infections of the spine. However, in many cases, the cause of scoliosis is unknown, and this is referred to as idiopathic scoliosis. Scoliosis can affect people of all ages, but it is most commonly identified during adolescence. The condition can sometimes lead to complications such as back pain, breathing difficulties, and changes in appearance, which is why early detection and appropriate management are important.

How Can We Treat Scoliosis?

Discovering the Possibilities

Scoliosis treatment depends on various factors, including the degree and pattern of the spinal curvature, the age of the patient, and the progression of the curve. Non-surgical scoliosis treatment options focus on managing pain, improving posture, and monitoring the curvature to prevent further progression.

In cases where the curve is severe or progressing rapidly, surgery may be necessary for scoliosis treatment. Our experienced team, led by Dr. Bo, is dedicated to helping you explore the possibilities and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals.

I read a bunch of great reviews before I went in. I didn’t know what to expect and was anxious before I went in but after speaking to the dr, I feel great about doing my back fusion. The dr. answered every questions and instead of doing a 2 steps, he will do a 1 step which is less invasive

Scoliosis FAQs

Answers to Common Questions. Click to Learn More

Scoliosis can be caused by various factors including congenital spine deformities, genetic conditions, neuromuscular problems, and unknown causes (idiopathic). The idiopathic form is the most common, especially in adolescents.

Common symptoms of scoliosis include uneven shoulders, a prominent shoulder blade, uneven waist, or leaning to one side. Some individuals may experience back pain or difficulty breathing in severe cases.

Most cases of scoliosis are idiopathic, meaning the cause is unknown, and therefore, prevention is not possible. However, early detection and intervention can prevent the progression of the curvature in many cases.

Scoliosis is typically diagnosed through a physical examination and imaging tests such as X-rays. The doctor will observe the back for curvature and may measure the angle of the curve (Cobb angle) using X-rays.

Treatment options for scoliosis vary depending on the severity and type of curvature. Options include observation, physical therapy, bracing, and surgery. The goal is to prevent progression, alleviate symptoms, and improve quality of life.

While scoliosis cannot be cured, it can be effectively managed through various treatment options. The goal of treatment is to prevent the progression of the curve and manage symptoms to improve the individual's quality of life.
