Scoliosis, or a curvature of the spine, typically begins to develop in children just prior to puberty. Many cases of scoliosis are mild and do not require medical intervention, but some children and teenagers will need to be monitored to ensure their spinal curvature does not interfere with other aspects of health. If scoliosis does begin to cause back pain and dysfunction, treatments to correct or slow the progression of the spinal curvature may be recommended.
It is important to consult with a pediatric orthopedic specialist if you notice signs of scoliosis in your child. There are certain indicators that suggest the spine may be misaligned. These include:
- One hip that is higher than the other
- One shoulder blade that appears larger than the other
- Uneven shoulders
- Ribs that protrude out more on one side
ORA’s Pediatric Surgeon, Dr. Michael Pyevich, explains the most common form of scoliosis that affects young people.
Scoliosis treatment at ORA Orthopedics in the Quad Cities is tailored to the individual needs of each patient. Our doctors treat children, teenagers, and adults with varying degrees of scoliosis.
The ideal course of treatment will depend on several factors, such as the extent and specific location of the curvature. Some people only require conservative treatment to relieve scoliosis symptoms, while others may be candidates for surgery to correct spinal curvature.
ORA patients benefit from the diverse expertise of our surgeons, who explore all possible scoliosis treatment options to ensure each patient receives the effective, well-rounded care they deserve. It is our goal to deliver a positive experience for our patients.
