Adult scoliosis is an abnormal curve of the bones in the spine that can twist or rotate to the left or right. This type of scoliosis can occur in adults due to untreated curvature as a child or degenerative spinal conditions like disc degeneration and spinal stenosis.

Approximately seven million people in the United States suffer from scoliosis and the experts at Virginia Spine Institute can offer the least invasive procedures to treat it. If you are suffering from scoliosis, find out if you are a candidate for adult scoliosis treatment.

ADULT SCOLIOSIS SYMPTOMS

If you are suffering from adult scoliosis, your symptoms may include back pain, leg length discrepancy, uneven hips, or an abnormal walking pattern.

Often times patients first notice that their clothes are no longer fitting correctly. Scoliosis symptoms may also include pain, difficulty standing or sitting upright, spinal stiffness, and even heart and lung problems if left untreated.

 

HOW WE DIAGNOIS AND TREAT ADULT SCOLIOSIS

ADULT SCOLIOSIS DIAGNOSIS

Determining the most appropriate scoliosis treatment first begins with an accurate diagnosis. Adult scoliosis can sometimes be diagnosed just by looking at the back, especially if the curvature is severe and has very obviously changed the structure of the spine. Determining the most appropriate scoliosis treatment first begins with an accurate diagnosis. The best way to identify adult scoliosis, however, is with standing x-rays.

ADULT SCOLIOSIS TREATMENT

The surgeons at Virginia Spine Institute may recommend minimally invasive scoliosis surgery as a treatment option for spinal curves that have progressed greater than 45° or are causing symptoms such as numbness, weakness, or pain.

These minimally invasive techniques use advanced imaging and specialized medical equipment to correct the abnormal curvature of the spine. Surgical treatment options may include robot-guided surgery, ultrasonic spine surgery, or interbody fusion surgery.
