Scoliosis is the sideways curvature of the spine that occurs as a growth spurt just before puberty. Medical conditions like cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy may cause Scoliosis. Signs and symptoms of Scoliosis include:
• Uneven shoulders
• One shoulder blade more prominent than other
• Uneven waist
• One hip higher than other
• Rotation of spine in severe cases
HOW IS SCOLIOSIS DIAGNOSED?
The condition is usually diagnosed during routine school medical examinations. A paediatric specialist may conduct a physical examination and check for any abnormalities in the shoulders or ribs. Plain x-rays will be required for definitive diagnosis.
HOW IS SCOLIOSIS TREATED?
The orthopedics mostly prescribes the use of braces in case of adolescents which hinders the growth of the curve. The doctor also recommends surgery which involves the process of spinal fusion where vertebrae are permanently joined together.
DID YOU KNOW?
The condition can be caused by cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy however, there can be many cases that are unrelated to these diseases hence, and the real cause of Scoliosis is rather unknown.
