Discover the Benefits of Minimally Invasive Scoliosis Treatment
The severe curving of the spine caused by scoliosis poses a number of problems for people of all ages. Scoliosis can limit your mobility, and it can even cause back pain. Fortunately, The Spine Center can help. Dr. Siddiqui has treated many patients suffering from scoliosis. He uses minimally invasive techniques to offer fast, effective solutions for correcting scoliosis in the spine.
What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a side-to-side curvature of the spine. The curve could be singular, leaving the patient’s spine shaped like the letter C, or it could involve two curves, forcing the spine into a letter S shape.
Many children and teens who have scoliosis don’t even realize it. That’s because the curving of the spine becomes more severe over time. And as the curvature worsens, scoliosis could cause back pain, and it could certainly limit your mobility and even make it difficult for you to breathe.
Symptoms of Scoliosis
The best way to determine if scoliosis is the cause of your spinal problems is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Siddiqui at one of The Spine Center’s convenient Houston locations. However, there are some common signs and symptoms of scoliosis you can look for. These include:
- Uneven shoulders
- Uneven waist
- Head isn’t centered over the body
- One shoulder blade sticks out
In severe cases, scoliosis can cause back pain and trouble breathing. That’s why it’s important to schedule your appointment with The Spine Center as quickly as possible.
