Expert care for scoliosis
When viewed from the front, a healthy spine appears straight and from the side should form three natural curves. The c-shaped curves of the neck and lower back and the reverse c-shaped curve of the chest. These curves help us balance and stand up. If the curves become abnormally shaped they can make it difficult to have proper posture or perform some physical activities.
Scoliosis is a sideways curvature that makes the spine look more like an S or C when viewed from the front or back instead of the healthy, straight line. Scoliosis most often appears in children and the curve corrects itself as the child grows. However, based on the degree of curvature and the age of the child, a combination of bracing and physical therapy is often recommended.
