Scoliosis Treatment in Austin

Scoliosis

Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine that often develops during adolescence. It is one of the most common spinal conditions among young people, with roughly 3 million new cases diagnosed each year. This condition can result from nerve or muscle issues, birth defects that alter development, or spinal injuries. Furthermore, it affects the older population at a much higher rate, with as many as seven in 10 people over the age of 60 experiencing symptoms. This prevalence makes Scoliosis treatment in Austin of the utmost importance. 

While Scoliosis is only life-threatening in extremely rare cases, its symptoms can make everyday life difficult to manage. Common symptoms of this condition include back pain, uneven shoulders or hips, limited range of motion and trouble breathing related to damage to the organs within the chest.
