Options for treating scoliosis

When a person has scoliosis, he or she may require treatment to fix the physical problem. The method of treatment will vary depending on the severity of the curvature of the spinal cord.

Observations, physical examinations, and X-rays with low radiation are done on most adolescents who have scoliosis with no definite cause. A doctor may recommend a young person with scoliosis to wear a brace if the spinal curvature is between 25 to 40 degrees. The brace will prevent the curve from getting worse as he or she grows older. But if the spinal cord curvature of a person reaches 45 degrees or higher and a brace no longer works, a doctor may suggest surgery to correct the problem to prevent the condition from worsening.

The legal team at Williams Hart is dedicated to helping people whose children have developed scoliosis or other conditions due to the use of depakote during pregnancy. If your baby has been injured or harmed due to this dangerous drug, speak with a lawyer about pursuing compensation by calling 800-761-3187 today.
