Scoliosis Awareness

Scoliosis Awareness Month

June is Scoliosis Awareness Month, to help you learn more and catch it early.

Early detection is key to helping sufferers avoid a lifetime of complications. Catching it early can help stop its progress while kids are still growing.

Early Detection of Scoliosis

 

2 to 3% of the American population, about 7 million people suffer from scoliosis, the curvature of the spine.

Curvature of the Spine

 

Scoliosis is the most common spinal deformity in the U.S., and in 85% of the cases, we don’t know the cause.

Most Common Spinal Deformity

 

People of all races and genders can suffer from scoliosis, but women are 8 times more likely to suffer from a serious enough case to need treatment.

Scoliosis and Treatment

 

Scoliosis usually starts between the ages of 10 and 15, but can be slowed or stopped with non-surgical treatments while kids are still young.
