Scoliosis Treatment

Scoliosis is a medical condition in which an individual’s spinal cord is curved, resembling more of an ā€œSā€ or ā€œCā€ shape than a straight column. Scoliosis ranges in severity, from mild cases that can be treated to more serious cases in which a full recovery may not be possible. Unfortunately, mothers who take the drug Depakote during pregnancy stand a much higher chance of giving birth to a child with scoliosis or another birth defect than other mothers.

If you or a loved one has given birth to a child with scoliosis as a result of taking Depakote during pregnancy, contact the Houston Depakote lawsuit attorneys of Williams Hart at 800-761-3187 for a free consultation.

Treatment Options for Scoliosis

Treatment options for scoliosis vary and depend on the severity of the curvature of the spine, as well as an individual’s age and other medical factors. The curvature of the spinal cord is measured in degrees, with the most severe cases having curves more than 45 degrees. Treatment options for scoliosis include:

  • Curves less than 25 degrees: no treatment is required, and the patient’s condition is observed every few months
  • Curves more than 25 but less than 30 degrees: back braces may be used for patients with this range of spine curvature
  • Curves of about 40 degrees: surgical corrections are required to correct, depending on the age of the patient

Fortunately, if the condition is treated early, many children born with the defect stand a good chance of recovery.
