When looking at the spine from the side, it has a natural curve. It is the curve that makes it possible for us to walk and do all the other amazing things we can do while standing upright. When looking at the spine from the back, there is no curve. It should look like a straight line. This is not the case for people who suffer from scoliosis. Instead of a straight line, the spine has an S-shaped curve. In many cases, this irregular curvature is mild and hardly noticeable. The symptoms of scoliosis range from very mild pain to severe pain. The symptoms of scoliosis also consist of difficulty breathing depending on the amount of curvature that the spine has. The treatment for scoliosis ranges from conservative treatment. Patients under the age of 18 that are still growing, these patients are usually treated with bracing. Patients that are over the age of 18 and are no longer growing, these patients are usually treated with physical therapy, anti-inflammatories such as Motrin, analgesics such as Tylenol, epidural injections, lifestyle modifications.
