Scoliosis Correction

It is natural for the spine to curve forward and backward to a certain degree. But occasionally the spine twists and develops curves in the wrong direction--sideways. When the spine twists and develops an "S"-shaped curve that goes from side to side, the condition is known as scoliosis.

Overview

Whenever possible, nonsurgical treatments are chosen first for scoliosis. Conservative treatments commonly include medication, bracing, and physical therapy and exercise. Surgery is generally only considered in patients who have continual pain, difficulty breathing, significant disfigurement, or a steadily worsening curve angle.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
As with any medical treatment, individual results may vary. There are potential risks and recovery takes time. People with conditions limiting rehabilitation should not have this surgery. Only a spine surgeon can tell if spine treatment is right for you.
