What is congenital scoliosis?
Congenital scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine that is caused by a defect that was present at birth.
Although congenital scoliosis is often discovered during the infant or toddle period, it is sometimes impossible to see any spine problems until a child reaches adolescence.
There are several types of congenital scoliosis:
- Incomplete formation of vertebrae
- Failure of separation of vertebrae
- Combination of bars and hemivertebrae
- Compensatory curves
Consult a doctor for details to help you manage congenital scoliosis.
