What is scoliosis?

Scoliosis can vary in severity, ranging from mild cases that may not require treatment to more complex forms that necessitate medical intervention. The condition typically presents as an "S" or "C" shape when viewed from the front or back, causing the spine to curve to one side. While the exact cause of scoliosis is not always known, it can result from factors such as genetics, muscle imbalances, or underlying medical conditions.

Diagnosing scoliosis

An accurate diagnosis of scoliosis is essential to determine the severity of the condition and develop an appropriate treatment plan. Our team of experienced orthopedic surgeons and spine specialists utilizes state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, including X-rays and spinal imaging, to assess the curvature and identify any underlying causes.

Comprehensive scoliosis treatments

At Premier Orthopaedic Associates, we offer a comprehensive range of treatments and therapies for scoliosis, tailored to the individual needs of each patient. Our approach includes:

  • Observation: In cases of mild scoliosis, especially in growing children and adolescents, close observation may be recommended to monitor the progression of the curve.
  • Physical therapy: Customized physical therapy programs are designed to improve spinal flexibility, strength, and posture, helping to manage pain and prevent further curvature.
  • Bracing: For moderate scoliosis, especially in adolescents, orthotic braces may be prescribed to halt the progression of the curve and provide support for spinal alignment.
  • Minimally invasive procedures: Advanced techniques, such as tethering or vertebral body stapling, may be considered in certain cases to correct spinal curvature while minimizing disruption to the patient's lifestyle.
  • Surgical intervention: For severe scoliosis or cases that do not respond to conservative treatments, surgical correction may be necessary. Our board-certified orthopedic surgeons specialize in complex spinal surgeries, including spinal fusion and instrumentation, to achieve lasting spinal alignment.
