Scoliosis: Symptoms, Treatment, and Management

Scoliosis is a condition affecting the curvature of the spine. It is often detected during adolescence, but it can develop at any age. Symptoms can be treated and managed effectively with specialized therapy from a physiotherapist and biokineticist.

Symptoms of Scoliosis

Symptoms include uneven shoulders, an asymmetrical waistline, and in severe cases, difficulty breathing or chronic back pain.

If you have any of these symptoms contact The Back Clinic for an assessment. Our team of therapists and doctors will tailor a treatment and management program to help you reduce your pain, and improve mobility and quality of life.

Causes of Scoliosis

The causes of scoliosis vary and may include congenital spine abnormalities, neuromuscular conditions, or idiopathic factors. Early detection through regular screenings is crucial for effective management.

Treatment and Management of Scoliosis

Treatment options include a multidisciplinary approach. Physical therapy plays a significant role in strengthening muscles, improving posture, and maintaining flexibility. Pain and symptom management strategies, including exercises tailored by biokineticists, help enhance mobility and quality of life. Request your appointment. Additionally, bracing may be recommended for adolescents with progressive curves, while severe cases may necessitate surgical intervention.
