Understanding Scoliosis

Scoliosis is one reason why an individual might be referred to a spine specialist. With this condition, the patient’s spine curves in an abnormal manner from side to side. Often, scoliosis is diagnosed in children, in which case it is usually a genetic condition. However, adults can also develop scoliosis later in life, often because of the wear and tear of the joints of the spine. Treatment options typically include bracing if the patient is a growing child. For some patients, spine surgery may be recommended.

You can hear more about scoliosis by watching this interview with an orthopedic surgeon. He discusses some of the differences between scoliosis in children versus adults, including which symptoms to watch out for.
