Non-surgical Treatments for Scoliosis
A Spinal Deformity Expert Talks About What to Try Before Surgery
Dr. Timothy Kuklo, a spine surgeon and spinal deformity expert, talks about the non-surgical treatment options for adults with scoliosis.
There's a range of non-surgical treatments to try, but none of them will stop the curve progression. Instead, these treatment options help patients cope with the pain as they go through their daily lives.
Dr. Kuklo says that physical conditioning and therapy is important for adults with scoliosis because keeping your body mobile and strong may reduce or control the back pain. He also covers injections and medications.
