Scoliosis is a progressive condition involving the lateral bending and twisting of the spine. Scoliosis can occur at any age, including adulthood. The most common type of scoliosis is Idiopathic Scoliosis, which is a term meaning “unknown origin.’ Idiopathic Scoliosis most frequently develops during adolescence and can aggressively progress if left untreated.
Wondering what your treatment options are for scoliosis?
Many scoliosis cases may have a genetic link or may be caused by neuromuscular conditions or trauma.
Idiopathic Scoliosis can sometimes show up in adolescence (AIS). Girls can begin to show signs around the ages of 11 or 12. Boys can show signs at around 13 or 14 years of age. When signs of scoliosis begin showing at an earlier age (at around 3 to 10 years old), it can be a sign of a more serious and progressive condition, requiring treatment as soon as possible.
Currently, there is no known way to prevent scoliosis. Early detection and prompt treatment can help prevent the condition from worsening and in many cases can improve or correct the scoliosis. Some concerns have been raised regarding possible causes of scoliosis, such as mattress types, sleeping position, and the carrying position and weight of school bags. However, there is no scientific or medical evidence to suggest that these factors play any role in the appearance of scoliosis.
