We Treat Scoliosis at Spine Institute of Nevada
Scoliosis is a condition where the spine develops sideways curves impacting the body’s overall alignment and balance. It can lead to a host of additional health and physical problems. Most people develop the condition in childhood or during the earlier teenage years, but it can present for the first time in adulthood. Some of the symptoms include shoulders at different heights, a head that is not centered at the pelvis, rib cages at different heights, uneven waist, and more. Spine Institute of Nevada can treat scoliosis through surgical correction.
Kyphosis and How We Can Treat It
Kyphosis is another spinal condition resulting in an abnormally-shaped spine. However, unlike scoliosis, kyphosis causes an exaggerated, rounded back – inside of a sideways effect. Age-related kyphosis occurs as the body’s spinal bones weaken, which in turn causes them to compress or crack. It can also occur in infants and teens due to malformation of the spine. Mild kyphosis will not cause noticeable signs or symptoms, but more severe cases cause severe pain and discomfort. Abnormal vertebrae are caused by numerous factors, including fractures, osteoporosis, disc degeneration, congenital disabilities, and more. We can treat kyphosis if it is pinching the spinal cord or nerve roots, and we most commonly use disc fusion to treat the condition.
We Have Years of Experience Treating Spondylolisthesis
Spondylolisthesis and spondylolysis are two conditions that can cause slippages in your vertebrae. They are potentially painful and chronic conditions, so anyone diagnosed with either should seek treatment immediately. Both conditions reduce the space in the spinal column and can lead to instability.
