SCOLIOSIS / CURVATURE

Southern Spinal Care

Almost everyone has a form of scoliosis. This is usually seen on x-ray.

The condition is not too concerning unless its a large curvature.

We are concerned in children from age 12 years if a large curve develops as it gets worse and can be life threatening at a later age as it affects lung and other body functions.

If your child has a dropped shoulder, or a hump in the midback then an examination is warranted.
