“Scoliosis is an abnormal curving of the spine. The disorder often occurs in adolescents just before they hit puberty during their growth spurt. Although scoliosis can be caused by conditions such as cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, most causes of scoliosis are unknown. Treatment for scoliosis depends on the curvature of the spine. For example, if the curve is less than 25°, then no treatment is required but curves more than 45° may require spine surgery NJ for safe correction.”
