Scoliosis (Spinal Curve)

Scoliosis (spinal curvature) means sideways curving of the spine, and may develop at various ages.

Seen in 2-4% of the population, this condition may be present at birth or may arise during childhood or adulthood. Scoliosis may lead to various health problems. Brace treatment and surgery are the options used in the treatment of scoliosis.

The causes of scoliosis are not known exactly. There is no evidence that carrying heavy bags, performing certain types of sports, or having a poor posture result in scoliosis. A genetic tendency is presumed to be a cause. There are no precautions to be protected from scoliosis. However, early diagnosis of scoliosis is significant for the treatment process.

Exercising regularly, keeping the back muscles strong, increasing physical fitness, staying in shape are indispensible components of almost all stages of scolisos follow up and treatment.
