Scoliosis


Specialty of Orthopaedic Surgery

Scoliosis is a deviation of the spine, instead of being straight twists and bends sideways. If the spine is very biased, it may cause bodily asymmetries as the ribs or hips protrude from one side to the other or that one shoulder is lower than the other. Depending on the affected column portion we distinguish between lumbar scoliosis (low back), dorsal scoliosis (top of the column) back and lumbar scoliosis. Scoliosis may begin in childhood but often is not noticed until adolescence. In most cases, the exact cause is unknown, but could be hereditary .. The treatment of scoliosis is based on rehabilitation to strengthen the muscles in the use of collar to enhance the natural progression of scoliosis and the surgery in cases of very sharp curves.
