Are you within the 2% of the population affected by scoliosis? If this is you, then we can help.
Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine which causes stiffness and pain and is more common in females and begins in childhood. The cause of it is unknown. But, thankfully, if it is detected early, targeted scoliosis treatment, which we provide at Spinal Care Clinics, will prevent the condition from worsening over time.
People with scoliosis have a sideways curve in their spine that makes an “S” or “C” shape. The vertebrae can rotate at the thoracic level of the spine causing this curve and resulting in a hump near the rib cage. If the curve is more than 60 degrees it is considered serious. Usually this curve makes the waist or shoulders uneven. And unlike the normal curvature of the spine, adjusting your posture will not correct the problem.
