Scoliosis & Kyphosis Treatment In India

Scoliosis is a spinal deformity characterised by an “S” shape curvature in the coronal plane, while kyphosis refers to a forward spinal angulation, typically in the sagittal plane. These conditions can develop as individuals age or may be present since childhood and worsen over time. In their mild forms, scoliosis and kyphosis may not cause severe pain or disability. However, when they progress or are associated with other spinal conditions, they can lead to significant pain and disability, requiring extensive treatment.

    Paediatric Spinal Deformity

    Paediatric spinal deformity surgery is a complex procedure aimed at correcting spinal deformities in children. The surgery involves a specialised healthcare team and may include spinal fusion, osteotomy, or vertebral body tethering. Recovery from surgery varies depending on the severity of the deformity and the surgical approach. If you suspect that your child may have a spinal deformity, it’s crucial to seek medical attention promptly to prevent further progression of the condition.

    Causes of Scoliosis and Kyphosis

    Various factors can contribute to scoliosis and kyphosis. Common causes include degenerative spinal arthritis, leading to instability and abnormal loading of the spine. Mild curvature may not require treatment, but some individuals develop deformities at a young age. History suggests that patients with curvatures exceeding 50 degrees during childhood are at risk of progression, even into adolescence. Adults with scoliosis or kyphosis typically have congenital spinal abnormalities.

    Musculoskeletal conditions and neurological disorders, such as pelvic obliquity, leg length discrepancy, and polio, can also lead to these deformities.

    Symptoms of Scoliosis and Kyphosis

    Pain and difficulty walking are among the most common symptoms of scoliosis and kyphosis. Patients may experience a sensation of imbalance due to the forward or sideways shift of the head and torso. Additionally, sciatica and leg symptoms may occur, often associated with spinal stenosis.

    Physical Examinations

    Physical examinations are crucial in detecting spinal deformities and assessing the degree of shift. Patients with scoliosis and kyphosis since childhood may exhibit rotational deformities of the ribcage. Spinal tenderness and spasms may also be present, along with significant spondylosis, resulting in reduced lumbar spine motion.

    Diagnosis and Treatment

    The diagnosis of scoliosis and kyphosis is often based on the presence of pain, but confirmation and evaluation of the severity of the curvature or deformity require X-rays.

    Treatment for adult patients with scoliosis or kyphosis depends on factors like pain severity, nerve compression, spinal deformity, age, and general medical condition. Conservative treatment is typically recommended, unless there is significant neurological deficit, such as leg weakness and numbness. Physical therapy, oral medications, and epidural steroid injections or nerve root blocks may be prescribed to manage pain and symptoms.
