Scoliosis can occur in either the upper back (thoracic), lower back (lumbar), or rarely, in the neck (cervical). Scoliosis is the most common spinal deformity affecting adolescents years of age.

      There are three main types of spine curvature disorders, including: Lordosis. Also called swayback, the spine of a person with lordosis curves significantly inward at the lower back. Scoliosis is diagnosed when a posterior view of the spinal column reveals lateral bends. A scoliosis curve to the right side of center will form a compensating bend back to the left side, and vice versa. Scoliosis usually occurs in the thoracic or lumbar areas of the back. A normal spine has a vertical curve measuring less than 10 degrees.

    Curvature of the spine, any of a group of deviations of the normal spinal curvature, including scoliosis, lordosis, and kyphosis. Scoliosis is a lateral, or sideways, deviation of the spine, or vertebral column. The condition usually includes two curves—the original abnormal curve and a. The most common symptom of scoliosis is curvature of the spine. Scoliosis risk factors include age (9- to year-olds), female sex, and family history. Diagnosis is done by the physical exam and by imaging techniques such as X-rays, CT scans, or MRI. Depending on the severity of the curve and the risk for it getting worse, scoliosis can be.

Scoliosis is defined as a lateral curvature of the spine, but since the mechanics of the spine do not allow side bending without some rotation, scoliosis always involves both lateral side bending and rotation.

Each of these conditions is characterised by a curvature of the spine. In order to determine whether you have scoliosis, hyperkyphosis or hyperlordosis, you will need to look at the direction and location of the curve – for example, scoliosis goes sideways, while hyperkyphosis is a forward curvature of.

Features. Scoliosis is an abnormal lateral curvature of the spine. It is most often diagnosed in childhood or early adolescence. The spine's normal curves occur at the cervical, thoracic and lumbar regions in the so-called “sagittal” plane.

These natural curves position the head over the pelvis and work as shock absorbers to distribute mechanical stress during movement. Scoliosis Treatment. Scoliosis is a lateral or sideways curve in the spine that is apparent when viewing the spine from behind.

Most cases of scoliosis are mild, but severe Scoliosis can be disabling. A mild degree of scoliosis is common, occurring in up to 50% of the population.

Scoliosis is a spinal deformity consisting of lateral curvature and rotation of the vertebrae. The causes of scoliosis vary and are classified broadly as congenital, neuromuscular, syndrome-related, idiopathic and spinal curvature due to secondary reasons.

The majority of scoliosis cases encountered by the general practitioner will be by: When the spinal curvature is less than 20 degrees, the child is observed at 3 to 6 month intervals. If the curvature worsens, corrective action will need to be taken. A brace of some type is usually recommended for a growing child with a curvature of 25 to 45 degrees.

Surgical correction is usually recommended for a patient with curvature of 40 to 50 degrees. Asymptomatic lateral curvature of the spine that is stable, with a Cobb angle ≤10° is known as spinal asymmetry 2.

Clinical presentation. In most instances, scoliosis is obvious if severe. On examination, the Adams forward bend test (a clinical test for assessing scoliosis) may be positive where a rib hump forms on the side of the convexity.Symptoms or signs that alert the physician that another diagnosis should be considered include: other structural abnormalities of the spine found on X-ray studies, excessive kyphosis (forward curvature of the spine), juvenile-onset scoliosis, infantile onset scoliosis, rapid curve progression, associated syndromes or lower extremity deformities, back pain and neurologic signs or symptoms.Scoliosis is defined as a lateral curvature of the spine.

It can also involve the vertebrae rotating. These symptoms can affect a person’s appearance as the spine bends to .
