Scoliosis Screening Shanghai

Scoliosis is the common spinal deformity in school-age children and it gives the spine a sideways curve. The degree of the curve varies from patient to patient and the spine will resemble the letter “C” or “S”. If the curve is greater than 10 degrees, scoliosis is diagnosed. Early intervention helps to improve the odds of preventing scoliosis progression. Neglecting scoliosis and not treating it early, can cause problems with the heart and lungs. Even after the treatment starts, frequent monitoring and proper care at home are essential to ensure the results are favorable. Some children and teens require a follow-up recheck at six months or one year.
