Usually developing in pre-pubescent growth spurts, Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine that varies in severity. In mild cases, Scoliosis can be treated with X-ray monitoring or corrective braces. However, in many instances, treatment with spine surgery is recommended.
If untreated, severe Scoliosis may result in other back problems, internal organ complications, uneven gait, and modified appearance into adulthood.
If you or your child’s primary care physician think your child might be experiencing Scoliosis, please contact Dr. Bruggeman’s office below. Our patient advocates will walk you through the process of imaging, determining the severity of the curvature, and deciding on the best treatment option.
