What is Juvenile 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. Juvenile scoliosis is a type of idiopathic (unknown cause) scoliosis that affects children between the ages of 3 and 9. At this age the condition is usually progressive a­­­nd may have associated pulmonary and cardiac complications.

The approach to treating juvenile scoliosis varies based on the severity of the condition. For mild cases, treatment primarily involves occasional re-evaluations. However, for more severe cases, immediate treatment is crucial, given the higher likelihood of progression.
