What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a condition where a person experiences a sideways curvature within their spine. For patients with the disorder, quality of life is lessened dramatically, and participating in sports or other activities is limited due to reduced respiratory function, decreased self-esteem, and of course, pain and discomfort.
Most cases of scoliosis occur during a growth spurt before puberty, which can sometimes cause deformities. Added reasons behind the disease include muscular dystrophy and cerebral palsy. While the underlying cause is not clear, there are ways patients can enhance their quality of life and get much-needed relief from the condition.
