what is scoliosis?

Scoliosis is a prevalent condition characterized by an abnormal curvature in the spine, causing discomfort and pain. This issue transcends age and gender boundaries, with an increasing incidence in contemporary times. Typically, the human spine, ideally straight, exhibits abnormal bending or curvature in individuals with Scoliosis. A noticeable sign is the upper back appearing mildly rounded while the lower back curves inward. This condition underscores the importance of early detection and appropriate intervention to address the discomfort associated with the misalignment of the spine.

types of scoliosis


This is the most common type of Scoliosis people suffer from. It usually affects children during their early growing age. The study further discovers that the patients of idiopathic Scoliosis are mainly adolescent girls. It may be inherited from parents however the severity of Scoliosis is not inherited.

Depending on the age, there are several Scoliosis types as mentioned below:

Infantile idiopathic Scoliosis: When the patient is aged below three years, it is called infantile idiopathic Scoliosis.

Juvenile idiopathic Scoliosis: It’s medically called Juvenile idiopathic Scoliosis when the patient’s age is between three to ten.

Adolescent idiopathic Scoliosis: Adolescent idiopathic Scoliosis is when the patient’s age is more than ten years. It’s observed that this type of Scoliosis generally affects a person in the age range of ten to eighteen.

Depending on the cause of Scoliosis development, mentioned below are the Scoliosis types as classified by experts:

Neuromuscular Scoliosis: This type of Scoliosis is caused when formation of bones of the spine takes place. During the fetal development time, sometimes bones of the spine do not develop completely and sometimes they do not separate from each other. People with birth defects are generally victims of this type of congenital Scoliosis. This type is usually severe and treatment for long duration is suggested.

Degenerative Scoliosis: This type of Scoliosis happens in adults because of changes in their spine at the lateral stage of life. This is precisely caused when an aged person is suffering from arthritis. A specific type of arthritis medically known as spondylosis causes this problem most of the time, as observed. With growing age ligaments and soft tissues grow older and weaker and can result in abnormal curvature of spines and finally lead to degenerative Scoliosis. This issue is often observed in knees and termed as Scoliosis knee. Scoliosis exercises or physiotherapy exercises for Scoliosis by our expert therapists can help you cure this condition.


A detailed research by a well known independent International research foundation found that various kinds of muscle disorders play a vital role in developing serious disorders like Scoliosis. Many of them are developed because of sports related injuries caused at young age or resulted from abnormal stress and strain body/muscle absorbs because of lifestyle disorders throughout years; and finally end up with severe issues and painful Scoliosis. Hence, it is observed to be a common problem these days. Further, abnormal fibrillin metabolism developed because of urban lifestyle is also contributing in causing and developing Scoliosis.

scoliosis causes

Average people with Scoliosis are of idiopathic in kind and comprise more than eighty percent of total cases. However, an abnormal sudden development of the curve because of an unidentified problem development somewhere else in the body is also observed in many cases. People with birth defects or cerebral issues or muscular dystrophy or other disorders often show Scoliosis symptoms at the lateral stage in life. It can also be caused because of sudden development of a tumor in the spine. Lastly, genetic issues, suddenly developed muscle disorders and bad fibrillin body-metabolism are few other common Scoliosis causes.

scoliosis treatment

Diagnosis of Scoliosis is basically done via a few medical tests like physical examinations and also via standard imaging techniques like CT Scan, X-ray or MRI Scan. Scoliosis can be treated with observations and bracing by skillful and experienced medical practitioners. Scoliosis exercises suggested by Scoliosis physiotherapy professionals help a lot in pain management.

When a person is suffering from severe Scoliosis pain for a long time, specific physical therapy or Scoliosis physiotherapy treatment works like a blessing and proves very effective.  Good results are observed almost immediately.

The case becomes cause of serious concern when the curve is severe and pain is continuous and unbearable. In an emergency situation, it’s also treated with medical surgery joining clubs’ spinal vertebrae permanently together. This specific type of surgical Scoliosis treatment is performed by highly experienced Orthopedic surgeons or Neurosurgeons.

The prognosis of Scoliosis for an individual ranges from fair to good depending on how early the problem is detected and treated. It is observed that in most cases, the treatment for Scoliosis becomes very successful when it is diagnosed at an early stage. However, there is no permanent cure for Scoliosis in current medical procedures, only Scoliosis symptoms can be reduced to a significant level.
