What is Scoliosis?

Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine which can commonly be visualised as a side-curve when viewing the spine from the front.

As seen in the image below there are many types of scoliosis and an individual may have more than one type occurring simultaneously.

                There are many types of scoliosis!

Scoliosis occurs most commonly in children and adolescents but adults are not excluded. Females are more likely to have scoliosis but males can get them too. If left untreated, certain cases of scoliosis can progress overtime from mild annoyances into majorly debilitating conditions with other associated health implications. Early screening, detection and the application of timely intervention by healthcare professionals such as chiropractors can help in providing the best outcomes possible for the patient.

How is scoliosis detected?

Scoliosis can be detected through a combination of observation, physical examination tests and imaging such as x-rays. X-rays may be taken by your chiropractor so that the nature and extent of your scoliosis can be analysed in great detail. This can then assist in determining the best strategy and course-of-action to take for your particular case.
