Scoliosis

  • Scoliosis in adults is very different than scoliosis in children.
  • More than 600,000 patients seek physician care annually for this disorder.
  • Approximately 30,000 children have back braces to manage scoliosis.
  • Moderate to severe adolescent scoliosis is eight times more common in girls than boys. 
  • A positive family history only increases the risk of adolescent scoliosis by twenty percent.

By understanding the differences of scoliosis conditions in children and adolescents, the most effective treatments can be implemented. Scoliosis is rarely painful, but if there is pain, it is important to look for other causes of the pain.

 

Desired Outcomes:

  • Review common causes of scoliosis: idiopathic, congenital, neuromuscular
  • Examine clinical findings of scoliosis
  • Discuss with patients and parents the appropriate treatment and management options for patients with scoliosis
  • Consider age and gender when evaluating for scoliosis in patients
