Scoliosis Diagnosis & Treatment in Toronto

What is Scoliosis?

scoliosisScoliosis is a condition that causes a person’s backbone to curve to the side instead of running down the middle as is normal. When the angle of the curve exceeds 10 degrees, one suffers from scoliosis. The precise reason for this condition remains unknown to doctors in a majority of cases. When a doctor is unable to determine the reason for scoliosis, the condition is referred to as ‘idiopathic’.

Scoliosis whose cause can be determined is divided into two categories: structural, where the curve is too rigid to be straightened and non-structural, where the problem can be treated in order to reverse the condition. Structural scoliosis can be caused by birth defects, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, genetic conditions, tumors, and infections. Non-structural scoliosis can be caused by factors like inflammations and muscle spasms. The symptoms of scoliosis tend to manifest thus:

  • A shoulder blade that is higher or sticks out more than the other
  • Rotating spine
  • Uneven hips
  • Back pain
  • Breathing problems due to the restricted chest area for lungs to expand
