4 Important Things to Know Before Scoliosis Treatment

One of the most common spinal deformity issues, scoliosis affects countless young adults and children around the world. While it can definitely occur in adults later on in life, it is far more likely to occur in children as young as 2 and 3, to as old as their late-teens. Considered the top spine surgeon north Jersey has to offer, Dr. Evan Baird has helped countless young children alleviate their scoliosis issues, and have a much higher quality of life. Despite being such a common condition, very few individuals even those who suffer from it, are as educated on the condition as they should be. To better educate you on all there is to know about scoliosis and scoliosis treatment, the top spine surgeon north Jersey has in practice, Dr. Evan Baird gives us the most crucial facts to know before you get treatment.

· What is Scoliosis?

The interesting thing about a vast majority of those patients and parents of patients, who suffer from scoliosis, is that many are confused as to what the disease actually is when they get their first diagnosis – despite being the most common spinal deformity. Scoliosis is a condition in which the patient will experience an abnormal, sideways curvature, of over 10 degrees, in the spine. Often, this condition causes the spine to appear in an S-shape and the condition is progressive, meaning it will almost always worsen over time, unless we intervene.

· Signs & Symptoms of Scoliosis

For the most part, according to Dr. Baird, the top spine surgeon north Jersey has to offer, signs of scoliosis will begin in young children most often during the ages of 9-14, while the body is in one of the most important growth phases – during or slightly before puberty. The lateral, or side-to-side, curvature of the spine is slow to develop and can often barely be noticeable when the child is in their youth (before 9/10 yrs. old). Some of the main signs to look out for include uneven shoulders, uneven hips, trouble walking, the appearance of the hips or ribcage to lean to one side and in some instances, there may be pain or discomfort, but this is rare.

· Diagnostics & Testing for Scoliosis

In certain parts of the country, all students, boys and girls are mandated to undergoes scoliosis testing – however, it is up to the parents if they would like their child to opt-out. Currently, approximately half the states require this testing to be done. The main test used for scoliosis, involves the child bending forward, at the waist, with their arms handing in front (down), while a specialist, will ensure the evenness of the back, spine and rib area. there is an instrument that can measure any abnormal curvature in the spine.

· Scoliosis Treatment

According to the top spine surgeon north Jersey has to offer, Dr. Baird, scoliosis treatment is highly dependent on how progressive the curve is. Generally, a mild curve doesn’t require much treatment, patients may want a brace to ensure that it does not progressively get worse. In addition, those with more serious curves, may also require a brace be used to slow down the progression of the curve and to reduce any symptoms that may exist. Generally, the most severe cases require surgery, when the spine curves more than 45 degrees. However, because surgery involves spinal fusion, which will fuse the patient’s growth plates, and stop them from growing – young patients will usually use a brace until they stop growing. Then they can undergo surgery with fusion or even using spinal stabilization instruments such as growing rods and more.
