Juvenile idiopathic scoliosis is classically defined as scoliosis that is first diagnosed between the ages of 4 and 10.
This category comprises about 10% to 15% of all idiopathic scoliosis in children.
Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis occurs at approximately 14 - 17 years old for women and 18 - 22 years for men.
This category represents over 80% of all diagnosed cases of scoliosis in children.
At LOC, we have treated both adult idiopathic & degenerative scoliosis patients ranging from 30 up to 87.
An adult scoliosis patient may experience idiopathic & degenerative together.
