How Scoliosis Affects Your Life
Scoliosis is defined as an irregular curvature in the spine. This can be recognized in childhood or may develop later in life. Either way, the condition often produces pain and can limit your mobility. Scoliosis can also cause sufferers to appear uneven in the shoulders or hips and may even result in visible protrusions on the spine or other areas.
4 Types of Scoliosis
Caused by abnormal growths of the nerves or spine. This condition is typically associated with spinal bifida, cerebral palsy, and other nerve-related conditions.
Developed before birth, congenital scoliosis is caused by bone abnormalities, and may cause complications throughout one’s life.
The most common causes of degenerative scoliosis include trauma caused by car accidents and other injuries, in addition to osteoporosis and deformities in the bones.
Idiopathic scoliosis develops due to an unknown cause and is the most common form of scoliosis.
