Juvenile Scoliosis Treatment
This is an X-ray scan of the spine of our patient Tina, which was taken 6 months ago at UP clinic in Gubei, Shanghai, China. A 14-year-old girl, Tina’s life quality was negatively impacted by scoliosis.
Scoliosis is a 3-dimensional malformation of the spine, with the most common type being idiopathic scoliosis. Specifically, the spine curves laterally without any significant vertebral malformation. Juvenile scoliosis is mostly idiopathic and could be caused by multiple factors.
