Scoliosis and Depakote

Scoliosis is a condition that occurs when the spine curves away from the middle of the back or sideways. There are three different types of scoliosis and some are much  more severe than others. It has also been claimed to be a birth defect associated with the anti-convulsion drug, Depakote.

The three causes of scoliosis are congenital scoliosis, which is present at birth,  and is caused from a problem with a spine during formation of the spine and ribs while in the womb.

Then there is neuromuscular scoliosis  which is caused by muscle weakness and poor muscle control. Diseases such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and polio can be causes of this type of scoliosis. The last type is the most common and is idiopathic scoliosis, which has an unknown cause and occurs mainly in adolescents.

If your child suffered from a birth injury after being prescribed Depakote while pregnant, contact the birth defects from Depakote lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187.
