Scoliosis Treatment Options for Kids and Adults

Scoliosis is a condition that is characterized by an abnormal curvature of the spine that can affect children and adults. Corrective treatment methods for the condition differ from person to person, depending on the patient’s age and the severity of the condition.

What are the causes of scoliosis?

The exact cause of scoliosis is unknown. However, in some patients, it may appear as congenital. That is, it is present at birth. It can also be caused by degradation of the spinal joints or discs, or by a neuromuscular disorder unrelated to structures of the bone.
