What is Scoliosis?

Scoliosis is a curving of the normally straight spine that varies in severity in different people. Many cases of Scoliosis are mild, while some cases are much more severe, especially with age. Scoliosis often develops before puberty and may go unnoticed until adulthood.

While Scoliosis can run in families, in many cases the cause is unknown.

The main causes of Scoliosis are:

  • Congenital - Scoliosis is present at birth
  • Neuromuscular - Scoliosis is caused by muscle weakness, paralysis, or disease
  • Idiopathic - The cause of Scoliosis is unknown.

What are the symptoms of Scoliosis?

While some cases of Scoliosis are so mild that they do not cause any symptoms, many cases of Sciatica do have signs and symptoms associated with it.

The most common signs and symptoms of Sciatica include:

  • Back Pain
  • Fatigue
  • Uneven shoulders or hips
  • Visibly abnormal spine curves
  • Decreased lung capacity in severe cases
  • Limited movement
