Scoliosis, a disease that affects millions of Americans, is a side to side curvature of the spine, contrary to the natural front to back curves. The spine curvatures, when significant, can contribute to a wide range of ongoing problems. These problems may include fatigue, muscle pain, and back pain, to spinal arthritis, or even breathing issues.
Here at the NYSI in Woodmere, both degenerative and idiopathic scoliosis disorders are treated by our dedicated spine and back specialists.
