What You May Not Have Known About Scoliosis


Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of your backbone, which is, in most cases, diagnosed among school-going children and early adolescents. The normal curves of the backbone occur at the cervical and the sagittal plane in the lumbar region. The natural curves place your head over your pelvis and serve as shock absorbers that distribute mechanical stress when you move.

Medically, scoliosis is defined as a spinal curvature in the coronal plane. The curvature degree is measured on the coronal plane. Nonetheless, scoliosis is a complex, three-dimensional problem that involves up to three planes, namely:

  • Coronal Plane
  • Sagittal Plane, and
  • Axial Plane

The coronal plane is the vertical plane running from the head to the foot and parallel to your shoulders. It divides your body into the front and back (anterior, posterior) sections. On the other hand, the sagittal plane divides your body into right and left halves, while the axial plane is parallel to the ground plane and 90 degrees to the sagittal and coronal planes.

Idiopathic scoliosis proves to be a medical myth, and why people get it still is a mystery. It is not caused by bad posture, carrying heavy backpacks, or playing certain sports. However, research has it that it could be running in the family. Therefore, you may have no control over whether you get it or not, as this lies in the genes.

Prevalence of Scoliosis


On average, this condition affects up to 9 million people across the US, translating to about 2 to 3 percent. The condition could develop between 10 to 15 years old during early childhood and occurs equally among both genders. Females have a higher chance of getting a progressing curve magnitude that requires treatment, up to 8 times than males.

Over 600,000 patients seek medical treatment, and up to 30,000 kids have fitted a brace each year. 38,000 people undertake spinal fusion surgery. A chiropractor at Peak Spine and Wellness will assess the condition and recommend a suitable treatment option that may include observation, bracing, or surgery. The following is what we evaluate before recommending suitable chiropractic care:

  • Spinal maturity – is your spine still growing or changing?
  • Curvature extent – The degree of the curvature and how it affects your lifestyle
  • Curve location – Thoracic curves are more likely to progress than spinal region curves
  • Possibility of the curvature progressing – Patients with large curves before their adolescence are likely to have their curves progress if untreated
