What is Infantile Scoliosis?

Scoliosis refers to an abnormal deviation in the curvature of the spine usually seen in x-rays as a lateral (sideways) S or C curvature.

Infantile scoliosis, falling under the category of idiopathic (meaning unknown cause) scoliosis specifically affects children under the age of 3. The majority of spinal curves develop within the first 6 months of life, emphasising the importance of early intervention. Seeking professional evaluation and treatment from a chiropractor is crucial, as early intervention can significantly impact the outcome.

Classifying infantile scoliosis into resolving or progressive categories is essential for appropriate management. Resolving infantile scoliosis is usually self-correcting, often requires no active treatment. However, in cases where the condition is identified as progressive, immediate and active treatment, coupled with frequent re-evaluation is necessary.
