Scoliosis is an unhealthy
curvature of a normally straight spine, affecting 12 million
people worldwide. A rotation of the vertebra and the rib cage
usually accompanies this unhealthy curve. Left untreated, this
unhealthy curve can worsen and cause disfigurement,
respiratory and digestive problems, and debilitating pain.
Most scoliosis patients are diagnosed between ages 12 and 16,
although there are many adults who suffer from the disease as
well. Scoliosis is a progressive disease which can continue
to progress into maturity. As such, it is a disease that must
be monitored aggressively.
The unhealthy curve may be
slight or significant, and may include the lumbar (lower
spine), thoracic (middle spine), or thoracolumbar ( both
middle and lower spine ). The cause of scoliosis is complex;
potential contributing factors may include other diseases,
trauma, or injuries. Idiopathic scoliosis is one of the most
common types of scoliosis; the cause is unknown.
Scoliosis in Adults
adults suffer from scoliosis, typically as a progression of
the disease from childhood. However, degenerative changes in
the spine can cause scoliosis in otherwise healthy adults.
These incidents may have been initiated through trauma or
disease such as fractures, osteoporosis, or degenerative disc
conditions. Noticeable changes often include:
scoliosis patients have breathing difficulty and neuropathy.
Since many early degenerative changes are shown in younger
patients, adults often have severely advanced degenerative
changes on the spine.
SpineCor non-rigid bracing system is a revolutionary way of
managing scoliosis in adults.
