Scoliosis treatment options

Nearly seven million people in America suffer from scoliosis and  this condition occurs when the spine begins to curve. The curve can be mild and require little  treatment or it can be very serious and can lead to other deformities.

The peak times for a person to be diagnosed with scoliosis is between 10 and 15 when large grow spurts begin to kick in. There is no exact answer for the perfect treatment option for scoliosis, but many times, back braces are required in order to restrict the upper body from moving and allowing the spine to curve more.

Researchers are currently determining what cases back braces are the most helpful. New surgical options, ones that do not require the fusing of the backbone, are currently being identified. Doctors are also studying why the curvature caused by scoliosis gets worse in some cases and not in others.
