There are different types of scoliosis, which can occur in various stages of human life. Congenital scoliosis is a rare type of scoliosis and generally occurs in infancy. The weakness of the spinal muscles or neurological problems can also result in the formation of sideway curves in the spine, leading to a condition called Neuromuscular Scoliosis.
Degenerative scoliosis generally occurs quite late in life and is the result of degeneration of the joints in the human back. The most common form of scoliosis is idiopathic Scoliosis, which largely occurs in adolescents and aggravates with age.
Idiopathic scoliosis can be caused by heredity or development factors and can be treated non-operation if the curvature of the spine is less than 40 degrees.
However, one must undergo non-surgical treatments, such as spinal exercises, which strengthen the back muscles, immediately after the detection of the condition.
Spinal mobilization through various exercises aims to realign the joints in the spine and nerve root decompression, pressure which can often result in back pain.
