We Treat Scoliosis and Spine Pain Effectively
Scoliosis of the spine is a sideways curvature that can often result in an ‘S’ shape or ‘C’ shape curve in the spine.The curve is usually in the Thoracic or Lumbar regions of the spine. Scoliosis can either be congenital, meaning present from birth, or idiopathic, meaning it develops over time as a result of another condition such as cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy.
Idiopathic scoliosis can also develop as a result of a muscular imbalance caused by either physical trauma following an accident or by one sided activities such as throwing or racket sports. Children can develop scoliosis through carrying heavy bags on one shoulder all day at school.
Scoliosis is not always obvious is minor cases. If you run the fingers down the spine either side of the vertebrae they will leave two red lines. It is often easier to see the curving of the spine in these red lines.
