Treating Scolosis in Plano, Frisco, McKinney and AllenWhat is it?

Scolosis is best described as a side-to-side curve of the spine, although the spine has natural curves such as the rounding of our upper custom cincinnati bengals Jerseys back and shoulder area to the natural curve of our lumbar spine, the side-to-side curve is not part of our natural curve. About 2% of people are affected by this deformation of the spine and although it can run in the family, most causes are unknown.

Symptoms

It frequently develops in before puberty and goes unnoticed for quite some time because it typically does not cause pain. Some warning signs may be uneven shoulders, a protusion of one or both shoulder blades, an uneven waist or an elevated hip. Because this condition typically isn’t painful you should look for the warning signs listed above.

Treatment

Most people with scolosis don’t need treatment and early detection is important because medical observation while growing up is needed to detect if the condition is getting worse. If intervention is needed typically an orthopedic brace may help and in some severe cases surgery may be required.
