What is Scoliosis

 

Viewed from the front or back, the spinal column should be straight. When scoliosis is present, you will see a sideways shift of the spine to the right or left. Approximately 10% of the population has small curves (less than ten degrees), which are of no consequence to function or health. This condition is called Spinal Asymmetry.

 

When a diagnostic x-ray is done, the curve of the spine is measured in degrees, as an angle, and this is called a Cobb angle. Scoliosis is defined as a curve greater than ten degrees. It is most common in the thoracic and lumbar regions of the spine and can involve one or both of these regions. The most common curve pattern is a right thoracic curve.

 

There are naturally occurring curves in the spinal column when it is viewed from the side (laterally). Swayback (lordosis) is normally present in the cervical and lumbar regions while round back (kyphosis) generally exists in the thoracic spine.

Common types of Scoliosis

 

Early Onset Scoliosis

 

The most common age range for scoliosis diagnosis in adolescence. That is why it is known as adolescent scoliosis. When it happens before the age of 10, this is mentioned as early-onset scoliosis.

 

Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis

 

Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is one of the most common forms of this disease. One out of four children is affected by this disease aged between 10 to 18. As the name suggests this disease occurs at the adolescence stage but no cause still has been identified.

 

Degenerative Scoliosis

 

Adult-onset scoliosis or degenerative scoliosis is recognized by the side curves of the spine that grows with time. Spine degeneration and disc problem are common symptoms of aging. When the discs and joints start degenerating and degrading it causes spinal curvature on one side. This is the most prominent sign of scoliosis. It commonly grows in the lumbar spine and in the lower back and takes the C-shape.

 

Neuromuscular Scoliosis

 

Neuromuscular scoliosis develops due to several reasons that cause spinal disorders along with problems in the brain and muscles. When the nerves and muscles cannot maintain the right alignment, it leads to a curved spine. This curvature grows in adulthood and becomes in the patients and they become unable to walk.

Scoliosis Treatment

 

Scoliosis is a disorder that causes an abnormal curve of the spine, or backbone. There is a normal spinal curve when looking from the side, but the spine should appear straight when looking from the front.

 

People with scoliosis develop additional curves to either side of the body, and the bones of the spine twist on each other, forming a C or an S-shaped or scoliosis curve in the spine. Scoliosis ranges from 10-20 degrees (mild), 20-50 degrees (moderate), and severe (greater than 50 degrees).

 

We treat Scoliosis without surgery.
