Effective Scoliosis Treatment

Scoliosis is a type of spinal deformity that causes the spine to curve to the side. For the most part, scoliosis has an unknown cause. Sometimes it can be a congenital condition, which means babies can be born with it. Other children may develop it as a result of another condition, such as cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy.

Depending on the kind of scoliosis, there are different treatment options available. For most cases, back braces are an effective way of correcting the spinal deformity. However, this works best for spines that are still growing but have not become severe by age 10. Surgery is an option for spines that are severely curved, although surgeons will prefer to wait until the spine is as developed as possible.
