Scoliosis occurs when the spine of the back forms a C or an S shaped curve. Scoliosis affects 2 to 3 percent of the population (an estimated 6 million people worldwide) and the exact cause remains unknown. The primary age of onset for scoliosis is 10 to 15 years old, and the condition affects more females than males. Scoliosis can impact the quality of life with limited activity, pain, reduced respiratory function or diminished self-esteem. Vertebral disc deformity (wedging) is considered a key component of spinal curve progression.
According to Dr. Clayton Stitzel, “It would certainly put the topic of scoliosis treatment back on the front burner for many people in the United States, and moreover call attention to the need for Early Stage Scoliosis Intervention while the curvatures are still small and patients are younger. That is when scoliosis exercises can have the most impact on the natural course of the condition.”
