Are you suffering from Scoliosis in Eagan MN?
Scoliosis Symptoms, Diagnosis, and Treatment
Scoliosis symptoms vary. Diagnosis requires exam and often x-rays. Several treatment options are available.
Scoliosis is a musculoskeletal disorder that adversely affects the shape of the spine (backbone). Basically, scoliosis is when the spine curves abnormally in one or more places. A scoliotic spine (when viewed from behind) will not be straight and may instead look like the letter “C” or “S” due to the side-to-side (right-to-left) curvature.
Individuals with scoliosis may exhibit no symptoms. Potential signs and symptoms of scoliosis can include:
- Uneven hips and/or shoulders (one is higher than the other)
- One shoulder blade sticks out more than the other
- Spine curves to one side
- Feeling tired in the back after standing or sitting
- Backache or low back pain
