What is Scoliosis?

What is scoliosis, and how do I know if I have it?

Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine. Since changes in the spine happen gradually, scoliosis may go unnoticed until the curve has become quite large. However, it’s important to recognize the symptoms of scoliosis, because the sooner you treat your curve, the more effectively you’ll be able to halt its progression.

Scoliosis research: What the science says

Dr. Andrew Strauss and his staff at Strauss Scoliosis Correction make a point of keeping up with the latest scoliosis research to bring our patients the most effective treatments. We’ve curated some of the most relevant resources so you can stay informed.

In pain? Treat the cause, not just the symptoms

Scoliosis pain is rare in children, but it’s common in adults. In fact, up to 92% of adults with scoliosis experience pain as a result of their condition. Fortunately, you don’t have to suffer. But you do need to treat the cause and not just the symptoms of scoliosis pain.

The benefits of treating mild curves

Many patients with mild scoliosis are told to do nothing because their curves are “too small to treat.” Yet research shows that mild curves respond well to exercise-based correction, often without the need for scoliosis bracing.
