Conditions We Treat

What is Scoliosis?

Scoliosis is a sideways curve in your backbone (or spine). Often, it first shows up when you’re a child or teenager. The angle of the curve may be small, large, or somewhere in between. But anything that measures more than 10 degrees on an X-ray is considered scoliosis.

Signs and Symptoms of Scoliosis
If you have scoliosis, you might lean a little when you stand. You could also have:
  • A visible curve in your back
  • Shoulders, a waist, or hips that look uneven
  • One shoulder blade that looks bigger
  • Ribs that stick out farther on one side of your body than the other

In addition to visible symptoms, scoliosis may lead to:

  • Low back pain
  • Back stiffness
  • Pain and numbness in your legs (from pinched nerves)
  • Fatigue due to muscle strain
