What Does Scoliosis Correction Treat?
Scoliosis is a condition that causes the spine to curve. The overwhelming majority of cases of scoliosis are either asymptomatic or cause symptoms nonsurgical treatment options easily manage. Scoliosis correction may be recommended when scoliosis symptoms do not respond to nonsurgical treatment options and/or scoliosis causes another spine disorder, such as disc herniation, accelerated disc degeneration, and severe anatomical deformities.
An early scoliosis diagnosis is always best as early treatment leads to the condition becoming worse. To receive an accurate diagnosis and customized treatment plan, please contact us and make an appointment with one of our spine specialists.
