WHAT IS SCOLIOSIS?
When you have an abnormal sideways curvature of the spine that sort of looks like the letter C or the letter S, you likely have scoliosis. This condition is often diagnosed in childhood or adolescence, but in some people, it’s not apparent until adulthood. Sometimes, a spinal curve that started in the teen years worsens in adulthood. As many as two to three percent of the population in the United States have scoliosis.
A scoliosis specialist is the best medical professional to consult if you think you may have scoliosis or any other type of abnormality in the spine. Doctors at Premier Brain & Spine’s advanced spine surgery center are New Jersey’s top spine specialists.
WHAT ARE THE SIGNS OF SCOLIOSIS?
IThe spinal curve of scoliosis can be as small as 10 degrees or more than 50 degrees. Individuals in the early stages of scoliosis with a curve of 20 degrees or less may not have any discomfort. You must watch for signs that include:
Uneven hips or shoulders
One or both shoulder blades stick out
The spine curves to one side
The pelvis is tilted
The waistline appears uneven
The head isn’t centered
When scoliosis is severe, it can be disabling. A serious spinal curve can make it hard for the lungs to function properly because of reduced space within the chest. If spinal curves in childhood are large and untreated, it can lead to chronic back pain in adulthood.
Scoliosis may not be the only cause of back pain even when there’s a noticeable curvature. It’s sometimes accompanied by other conditions, such as spondylolisthesis, a spinal tumor or a herniated disc. The doctors at Premier Brain & Spine provide a thorough examination and imaging tests to come up with an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan for any source of back pain, including scoliosis.
