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 cause extreme back pain. Fortunately, The Spine Center is equipped to help.
Doctor Saqib 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. As the curvature worsens, scoliosis can cause back pain, limit mobility and even make it difficult 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 Doctor Saqib Siddiqui at one of The Spine Center’s convenient locations.
However, there are some common signs and symptoms of scoliosis you can look for. These include:
Displaced shoulder blade
In severe cases, scoliosis can even cause back pain and trouble breathing.
At The Spine Center, we use cutting-edge minimally invasive procedures to help correct scoliosis. Because we use minimally invasive techniques rather than conventional back surgery, many of our patients report:
