In general, the scoliosis’ patient doesn’t feel pain, and that’s why it’s difficult for lay eyes to identify the problem in its early stage. Among the most common symptoms is the asymmetry of shoulders or hips, in other words, one shoulder may look taller than the other or the pelvis appears to be slightly inclined.
To diagnose the disease, the doctor will do a series of questions in order to elaborate a medical history, besides perform physical exams in search of signs of scoliosis. It is also likely that your doctor will perform neurological examinations and imaging tests, such as x-rays, CT scans, or MRI scans.
One of the forms of treatment of this disease is by surgical intervention, which consists of correcting the deformity, being able to use metal rods fastened with hooks and screws for bone recovery.
