Scoliosis refers to an abnormal curvature of the spine that appears during the growth spurt before puberty. Though most cases are mild, it is possible for the condition to result in severe spinal deformities.
In most cases, the precise cause of scoliosis is unknown. However, the condition appears to involve hereditary factors because it tends to run in families.
Our physicians are able to diagnose scoliosis with a fairly straightforward process that includes:
Physical Exam: The first step is collecting your full medical history and performing a physical examination to evaluate any visible curvature.
Imaging Tests: Once the exam is complete, we will order an X-ray to confirm the diagnosis and identify the severity and extent of your condition.
Our patients, employees and family are our top priority at Long Island Spine Specialists, P.C.
