Scoliosis is a condition in which the spine develops one or more abnormal side to side curves. Development of theses curves may affect the alignment and balance of your body. The condition may also lead to other health complications. There are several non-surgical interventions that your doctor may recommend to treat this disorder. However, if your curves are severe, the doctor will recommend that you undergo surgery to correct the disorder. This curvature of the spine should be done by a qualified physician.
The treatment involves instrumentation and spinal fusion. During spinal fusion, the doctor places graft materials between the affected bones. These materials help the bones to fuse or join together. On the other hand, instrumentation involves implanting rods, screws and connectors along the treated area. This helps in the healing process of the spine because the instruments allow the spine to support the vertebral structures and properly redirect stress along the spine.
