Scoliosis: A curvature of the spine

Scoliosis is a condition that occurs when the spine curves away from the middle of the back. This condition could occur at birth, or could be related to a neuromuscular condition or may have an unknown cause.

When scoliosis is congenital, it may be tied to multiple other birth defects and neuromuscular birth defects are associated with other condition such as cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy. Although all spines curve a little, scoliosis is characterized by a curvature in an “S” or “C” shape.

The symptoms of scoliosis depend on the severity. A minor curve can cause lower back pain, but a severe curve can affect one’s breathing ability. One possible sign of scoliosis is when one shoulder is higher than the other and also if the pelvis has a tilt.

Recently, the use of depakote has been linked to multiple birth defects. If this has happened to you or a loved one, you need representation on your side that will be able to help you fight for the compensation that you deserve.
