Scoliosis is a condition that typically begins in the preteen years and is more severe in girls than boys. It is characterized by very prominent symptoms including one shoulder blade being higher than or sticking out more than the other. Scoliosis can also be easily identified by the individual having an abnormal spine curve compared to normal people with a straight spine when viewed from an angle.
Fortunately, most cases are mild and can be prevented from getting worse. If left untreated, scoliosis can cause other complications such as uneven hips, rotating spine, or breathing challenges.
Depending on the peculiarity of the condition, Dr. Bryan explores innovative treatments such as braces or growing rods to correct the condition.
