For scoliosis treatment, Washington and Alaska residents have an excellent option in Northwest Pain Relief Center. Scoliosis is a condition that affects spinal alignment causing the spine to curve abnormally and appear as an “S” shape when viewed from the back, when it normally looks like a straight line. Typically found during a school screening, this condition affects approximately 2%-3% of American teenagers, and impacts more girls than boys. Scoliosis can cause pain and limit the patient’s range of movement because the abnormal spinal alignment creates muscle strain and can cause the vertebrae to be off-center, which can affect surrounding nerves. To correct these problems, you can trust the expertise of the medical professionals at Northwest Pain Relief Center.
Scoliosis treatment usually involves a brace and surgery which is only recommended in about .01% of cases. Many things can cause scoliosis including bone abnormality at birth (congenital scoliosis), muscle or nerve abnormality (neuromuscular scoliosis), and injury, trauma, illness, or surgery (degenerative scoliosis). There is no identifiable cause for about 80% of all scoliosis cases, and this leads to a diagnosis of idiopathic scoliosis.
